Strawberry Shortcake


Do you know them?

They were immensely popular in the 80’s and even in the 90’s. Measuring approximately 10 cm, the shortcakes are sweetly scented like their names and  are exceedingly adorable with their puffy face. I didn’t own one when young so I made up for it 10 years ago, ordered Lemon Meringue and Strawberry Shortcake pre-loved on ebay. The box above was purchased new from KL, Malaysia Toys R Us almost 5 years ago. Couldn’t resist them. I would have loved to collect the entire set but they are hard to find, the authentic ones.

Did you know that the most sort after are those produced in 1979 by Kenner with flat rather than curved hands?
