These are my Strawberry Shortcake dolls. Just one category of many in my collection. The first three dolls on the left are vintage, from American Greetings. Strawberry Shortcake, Lemon Meringue and Orange Blossom.
The middle section is from a few different companies that purchased the rites to this doll line and then either sold roost them to another company.
The third doll over in the back row (orange hair) was added to the line by the Playmates company in 2006. They named the line, A World of Friends.
In February of 2015 , The Iconic Brand Group bought the rites to Strawberry Shortcake. The doll on the far right is from this period. I bought her a while back from Wal-Mart for around $10.
Most of my attraction to these dolls is their bright and beautiful colors which remind me of the rainbow…full of promise!
