Herself the Elf

Herself the Elf & Friends

Herself the Elf originally started out as a drawing on greetings cards in 1982. Like Strawberry Shortcake, the Care Bears, and other toy lines inspired by greeting card illustrations, the elves soon appeared as dolls, toys, and in an animated TV special.

The Berry Happy Home dollhouse came out in 1983 and was a place where Strawberry Shortcake and her friends could live and play. It had six charming rooms and lots of intricate details.

This year’s line of Ever After High dolls introduced lots of new characters, and there was one that I just had to have – Ginger Breadhouse. I love anything with a candy or sweets theme, and especially gingerbread!

As the daughter of the Candy Witch from Hansel and Gretel, her destiny is to live in the woods and eat little children. But she’s really a sweet girl who would rather bake treats for her friends. It’s just that no one trusts her enough to eat them!
