Can you believe that Strawberry Shortcake is still around and that there are new scented dolls to collect and play with? When I was little, I used to love Strawberry Shortcake, and had a collection of strawberry scented dolls to carry around while wearing my Strawberry Shortcake pajamas.  Luckily, my mom kept my doll collection and recently shared it with my girls.  As they dug through the trash bag full of dolls, their eyes lit up when they pulled out the red-haired Strawberry Shortcake doll.  Not only did they love her flaming red hair, but, get this, almost 30 years later, she still smelled like strawberries. :-)  I couldn't believe this as I watched my girls pass the doll back and forth to one another just to take a sniff of the doll and say, "Yum, strawberries."  :-)

My girls are not new to the whole Strawberry Shortcake craze, as I have been sharing new DVD releases of Strawberry and her friends whenever they are released.  And, now the girls get to play with my old dolls, while adding to this collection with new ones that are now available in stores. 

Recently, I was sent the new Strawberry Shortcake Styling Doll for review, and knew just the two girls who could help me review it -- even though I wish I could have just kept her in the box to admire.  :-) 

Here are a few cute photos I snapped of the girls after handing them over the doll to play with.

Sweet, huh?  That is sisterly love -- even if they fight at times, at the end of the day they still love each other. :-)

Before I could take the doll out of the box, the girls passed the box around a few times, taking in a sniff of the strawberry scent.  I, too, took a sniff and couldn't help but think back to my childhood and how I loved getting new Strawberry Shortcake dolls and would sniff her to smell the sweet berry scent.  

As soon as I was able to take the Strawberry Shortcake doll and accessories out the box, the girls went to town trying out the different hair accessories on Strawberry Shortcake's hair, as well as their own.  
Then, they took turns brushing Strawberry Shortcake's hair before stopping to ask me if they could write another letter to Santa asking for more Strawberry Shortcake dolls, including the Lemon Meringue Styling Doll.  Then,  the other day when the girls were watching a Strawberry Shortcake movie and playing with their dolls, they saw a commercial on television for the new singing Strawberry Shortcake doll, and were quick to ask me to add this one, too, to their extended wish list for Santa.  

We'll just have to wait to see what Santa brings on Christmas Day.  But, I have a feeling there will be a few Strawberry Shortcake dolls under the tree.  And, I will be finding time to play dolls with my girls, so that I can relive a part of my childhood with them. :-)


You can find the Strawberry Shortcake Styling Dolls -- either Strawberry or Lemon Meringue -- at your favorite toy retailer including Toys 'R Us, Kmart and Walmart, as well as through online retailers like Amazon.
