Strawberry Shortcake Dolls? [16 Dec 2009|03:55pm]

super_moogles
Hey there! I just joined this community because I have a ton of really old Strawberry Shortcake dolls from the 80's, and I was curious to know if you guys knew their worth! Pictures (not mine) of what they look like: And the like. I believe I have nine dolls, with a lot of outfits, and a lot of the animals. I'm hoping to update soon! Someone please help me find out their worth! Thanks for viewing! ♥

I noticed today that there are no communities related to girly shows of the 80's. So because it upset me, I decided to make one :)

Daiso is selling SS ice packs. like for sprained ankles, though they say "keeps food cold" so maybe they're intended for lunch boxes. ICE PACKS. that's even better than the bandaids I found last year.

How much is Figboot worth? Does anyone know?
All I can find at sites is that he is rare but they never say how rare...
I got him from a yard sale years ago and was just wondering :)

HI! [26 Jun 2008|03:06pm]

I have some new Strawberry Shortcake items available in my shop! They are vintage of course, but newly listed!♥
You can check them out in my etsy shop
stickykitten !!

This little baby is Lemon Meringue...she is one of Strawberry Shortcake's dear friends. Circa 1979--they've been pals awhile.

I love this little strawberry dollhouse. It is soo cute and perfect for photo shoots with your strawberry minis! I also just think it looks cute on a table or nite stand. 
And oh, yeah--Happy First Day of Summer (a couple days ago)!

(X-posted) SSC new look (from Yahoo news) [11 Jun 2008|11:43am]

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/11/business/media/11cartoons.html
Strawberry Shortcake was having an identity crisis. The “it” doll and cartoon star of the 1980s was just not connecting with modern girls. Too candy-obsessed. Too ditzy. Too fond of wearing bloomers.

So her owner, American Greetings Properties, worked for a year on what it calls a “fruit-forward” makeover. Strawberry Shortcake, part of a line of scented dolls, now prefers fresh fruit to gumdrops, appears to wear just a dab of lipstick (but no rouge), and spends her time chatting on a cellphone instead of brushing her calico cat, Custard. Her new look was unveiled Tuesday, along with plans for a new line of toys from Hasbro.
[[SNIP!]]

On top of her new toy line, Strawberry Shortcake is getting a new computer-animated movie and a new TV series, starting next year. This time, in keeping with contemporary nutritional concerns, the franchise will downplay the sugary dessert theme and move, as Mr. Conrad put it, “fruit-forward.”

“It’s also about creating a cohesive line,” Mr. Conrad said. “We’re downplaying characters that were part of Strawberry’s world but who didn’t immediately shout out fruit.”



ARGH. She was never 'candy-obsessed', she loved baking with fresh fruit, there is a big difference. And ditzy?? The only ditzy one I see is a Strawberry who talks on her cell phone in place of feeding her pet cat and watching her cake (if she can even cook anymore) so it doesn't burn down the house :\. And the boomers? She was suppose to look like an old fashion doll, not a mini Barbie or High School Musical character, that was the whole point! There was a reason why all the pets looked like living stuffed animals... *sigh* But if you want to make SSC into a boring ad for five year olds to wear make up that just says berry every once and a while, I guess it is your right :(.

*Goes back to bidding on 80s SSC dolls on ebay* :)
Edit:
....And for that matter, loving 80's SSC never turned me into a fatty that did nothing but eat junk food. Doesn't anyone believe that parents can teach little kids good eating habits anymore? And that a fantasy world is just fun pretend?
I'm surprised they have not outlawed Candyland :P

The New Series [16 Sep 2007|02:05am]

selfunderstared
So, according to American Greetings' site, the new series will be on the air on CBS next weekend. One of the preview videos they have is an excerpt from Best Pet Yet, which makes me smile because I am fond of Peppermint Fizz, but I'm still a little unsure about the writing being less-than-grating.
Will any of you be checking it out?

Strawberry Shortcake Screencaps? [29 Apr 2007|01:41pm]

[ mood | creative ]

Hi guys! This is my berry first time posting.
I'm currently in the market for a MIB Lime Chiffon. But that's besides the point!

I'm making a SSC mood theme (my currently one is My Little Pony!) and are looking for some okay-quality, old-school-style (although new-school would be alright too I suppose) SSC screen-caps! Do any of you know a place to find some? I've been all over the web looking.

SSC icons I've designed!
SSC colour bar!

Also, if any of you are into rating communities, I invite you to join strawberrystamp! Find out which berry special character you are.

WHICH BERRY SPECIAL CHARACTER ARE YOU?

i got this nutty idea to sew Strawberry Shortcake costumes for my American Girl doll, Addy. Orange Blossom is the only one I've finished so far, but Raspberry Tart is complete except for the shoes. I'll post pictures of that pretty soon. here are some Orange pics to whet your appetites:

feature film? [16 Aug 2006|01:39pm]

maiocox
I saw this today on wikipedia's Strawberry Shortcake page:
"On June 15, 2006, an article in Animation Magazine revealed that a feature-length CG Strawberry Shortcake film was scheduled to open in theaters in October of 2006, accompanied by heavy merchandising by American Greetings. The film, entitled "Sweet Dreams," was written by experienced sequel-author Carter Crocker."
(from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strawberry_Shortcake)

Does anyone know anything about this? I'm assuming this movie will have the new characters and character design, and I haven't seen any of the new videos so I don't know what I'm getting myself into, but do I care? Nope. First in line, costume on.

I don't do auctions -- or at least I can't right now. So if the mod is alright with this -- I'd like to do a direct sale.

I got some coloring books off ebay recently, and last weekend I sharpened up my crayons and colored pencils and did some colorin'. Some of these are traditional (obviously), others not so much.

hey! everyone new here joined last week, and yet it's been a week since someone posted here. So I thought I'd say hello. I'm a huge fan of strawberry shortcake, have been since I was a baby. My mom hoped I was born earlier then 87 so I could watch with my cousins who were hooked. So she bought me things as a baby and I grew up falling in love. So on the user info it's stated that you guys auction on here. I'm a huge ebayer. I only look for strawberry shortcake stuff and concert tickets, but I've been please with my stuff I've won. So if anyone is planning on giving up some ssc stuff I'm def the gal to hit up. OR even trade I've got tons of stuff, from bags, to wallets, to shirts, pants..curtains.. dolls, but I sleep with those.. I'll keep those...haha I even collect the new ssc so if anyone is intested in her. Anyways, I just wanted to say hello, and thanks for letting me be apart of this community!
