Dancin' Strawberry Shortcake Doll Vintage Ballerina Dancer with Accessories
This vintage Strawberry Shortcake doll is Dancin' Strawberry Shortcake from 1983, she comes with everything she needs to practice ballet and become a ballerina! She has bendable legs and a swivel waist, so she can pose in all kinds of different dance positions.
Strawberry Shortcake comes with her green mirror with a pink ballet barre, a pink doll stand to hold her as she poses, a pink leotard with white ruffled sleeves and pink striped tights, a tutu, apron-type skirt, white silky hat, pink ballet shoes, and a plastic pink headband. The skirt can also be worn as a cape.
The tutu is not original to the set, the tulle has some iridescent glitter in it rather than being plain white. But this matches nicely with iridescent ribbon on the skirt, so it completes the ensemble well.
Her shoes are sticky and some of the color seems to be leeching out, so there are darker spots and these are leaving pink stains on her tights. The shoes are very similar to Raspberry Tart's shoes but are a little darker pink.
Strawberry Shortcake's face is very clean. Her hair is nice and smooth with no tangles, but her bangs stick up a little in front. These can be held down with her hat or headband.
The mirror has some scratches on it as is typical with these mirrors since the mirror part is made of a thin reflective film rather than a real glass or plastic mirror.
Overall this set is in very nice vintage condition and would be a great addition to your collection!
