Doll Tale Thursday #20: Strawberry Shortcake 30th Anniversary Dolls

THEIR STORY:
I'm a child of the 80's so I'm loving this vintage style Strawberry Shortcake gang.  I'd been eyeing this set at Toys R Us for a good year before they landed in my hands.  My partner was actually the one who cracked and decided to buy it for me.  She's awesome like that.

I must say, I had a blast photographing these dolls!  They just ooze cuteness all over!  They smell sweet too!

My love for these dolls relates to a childhood memory .  As a child, I once saw a strawberry-shaped dollhouse on a store display while my family and I were out for a stroll.  I really wanted it.  I just knew that dollhouse would have made me the happiest kid in the world.  I wasn't the kind of kid who asked for things, but this dollhouse I wanted badly enough to ask for.  Of course, I didn't get it.  You can't always get what you want, I suppose.  Now that I think about it, it's probably not a Strawberry Shortcake merchandise.  I remember it being pink in color.  Since it's strawberry-shaped, I'm afraid I've always associated it with Strawberry Shortcake and I've had a thing for Strawberry Shortcake since.

Happy Thursday!
