This is Apricot, another baby, and her rabbit Hopsalot. I lost Apricot’s hat, which is a bummer. Incidentally, Apricot is the only one of the dolls that still has any fragrance left on her. That was one of the big features of the Strawberry Shortcake dolls — they all smelled like their namesakes.

In 1979 Kenner produced the first five Strawberry Shortcake Dolls. Except for Purple Pieman, they all had flat rather than curved hands making them most sort after. They were each scented like their name.

    I can’t believe you not only still have all of them but ALSO all of their CLOTHES!!!! I still have a handful of my dolls but they’re all naked.

    I love this post! I’m all teary and have that wonderful nostalgic feeling. Strawberry Shortcake dolls were my absolute favorite and we couldn’t afford to buy them. Now I’m almost 40 and thinking this could be my time to have a little collection. Thank you so much for this sweet walk down memory lane, it was special

    I found three dolls(Strawberry Shortcake babies) in a box of my mom’s things and have been able to identify all of them, I think correctly now after looing at your post. The one I believe is Angel Cake however, has no clothes or hair band – she has white arms and legs, however…maybe it is a different Apricot?
    The other two are Apricot and Cherry Cuddler if I’m correct, their outfits are faded and incomplete – but I believe the originals.

Everyone has a toy that is the most special to them — the object that comes to mind when someone says the word “toy” — and my Strawberry Shortcake dolls are mine. I have fond memories of a lot of my playthings — Barbies, Lego, my Cabbage Patch Kid, Fisher Price toys — but these were the creme de la creme of all of my toys. I played with these constantly. I pined for new dolls. I poured over the little catalogs that came in the boxes. I wanted Strawberry Shortcake clothes and sheets and books and movies. I inserted the word “berry” in conversation more times than I care to admit. In many ways, these toys are a physical manifestation of my childhood. Heady stuff, right?
