Classic Reissue Strawberry Shortcake Dolls

Strawberry Shortcake Classic Reissue DollsIn 2015, The Bridge Direct reissued a Strawberry Shortcake doll to celebrate Strawberry Shortcake's 35th Birthday. The doll was a replica of the original classic 1980s version with the same poufy hat, red dress, green and white striped tights, and brown shoes. She was scented like the original version and there were holes in the front of the box so you could smell her nostalgic strawberry scent without taking her out of the box.

Due to the popularity of the reissue dolls, more characters were released in 2016. The other characters have a symbol that says "Original 1980s design!" instead of "35th Birthday." Just like Strawberry Shortcake, they are reproductions of their classic versions and are scented.

The dolls have slightly wider cheeks than the original versions and all have flat hands like the First Issue Strawberry Shortcake dolls, which did not come with pets. Their skin is made of slighly translucent plastic and their tights are made of knit fabric instead of polyester. Some of the dolls have other minor outfit changes.

Unfortunately, The Bridge Direct only made these dolls for a short time before they were discontinued, so they're sure to become even more collectible in the years to come. 

In 2020, Basic Fun revived the production of the dolls by releasing a 40th Anniversary Strawberry Shortcake with a few extra-special additions to her outfit: the red parts of her dress are shimmery and she wears glittery gold shoes. A reproduction of the classic version has also been re-released.

These classic reissue dolls are ideal for collecting or for introducing Strawberry Shortcake to a new generation. Even after 40 years, Strawberry Shortcake holds a special place in the hearts of children and collectors and is sure to be loved for many years to come.
