Strawberry Shortcake & Lemon Meringue Reissue 1980s Design Classic Doll Set
This classic reissue Strawberry Shortcake doll set includes Strawberry Shortcake and Custard and Lemon Meringue and Frappe. Both dolls have flat hands like the First Issue Strawberry Shortcake dolls, although Lemon Meringue was not one of the First Issue dolls. This set is one of several Classic Reissue Strawberry Shortcake dolls.
Strawberry Shortcake wears a pink and red dress similar to the vintage Party Pleaser version. She has a red ribbon headband instead of a hat and wears red shoes.
Lemon Meringue's dress is also slightly different than her classic dress. Although there was never a Party Pleaser version of Lemon Meringue in the original line, the dress she wears has frilly lace similar to the Party Pleaser style. She wears a green ribbon instead of a hat and sheer white nylons instead of the classic striped tights.
Both dolls' pets are exactly like their vintage versions.
There are three holes in the plastic on the front of the box so you can smell the dolls' nostalgic scents without removing them from the box.
The box detail includes images of the classic Strawberry Shortcake as well as the classic logo. The large clear panel on the front lets you see the whole doll, so it's perfect for displaying in the box.
The back of the box shows classic images of Strawberry Shortcake and Lemon Meringue that originally appeared on Valentine's Day cards.
The message on the back of the box reads:
"Strawberry Shortcake and Lemon Meringue have been berry good friends since 1980! This special collector's set includes authentic reproductions of the original dolls from the 1980s - both with berry sweet scents!"
The back of the box is marked "2016 The Bridge Direct, Inc."
These classic reissue dolls were only made for a short time before they were discontinued, so they're sure to become even more collectible in the years to come.
