Cherry Cuddler Strawberry Shortcake Doll with Gooseberry Pet
This vintage Strawberry Shortcake doll is Cherry Cuddler with her pet, Gooseberry. Cherry Cuddler has pink hair and green eyes and is one of Strawberry Shortcake's baby friends. As a baby, she's smaller than the other dolls.
She wears green and white striped tights, a little white dress with cherries and a green ribbon, pink shoes, and a red hat with pink trim.
Her hat is still fastened to her head with the original plastic fasteners and has never been removed. It does have a small stain on the left side, as shown in the 3rd photo. Her shoes are glued on to her tights and also show some discoloration and dirt. It's rare to find her with her shoes, as these often came loose from the tights and got lost.
The back of the tights have a snag near the waist and the stitching that holds the waist elastic to the tights is coming undone. Cherry Cuddler has a small spot on her forehead, but it's light and is covered by her bangs.
Gooseberry has lots of paint rubs and there's paint worn off the nose, dress, hat, and bow. The paint that's left has a bubbly texture and looks like it could scrape off easily. Gooseberry is marked "A.G.C. 1982" on the bottom.
