Strawberry Shortcake has been loved by children since 1979, when American Greetings featured her on a greeting card. Then Kenner toy company designed a set of dolls each with different fruity dessert names and dressed in color matched clothing. Some had a companion animal pet with a matching dessert name and the dolls smelled like their fruit. The characters lived in Berry Land and included Strawberry Shortcake (Pupcake), Blueberry Muffin, Huckleberry Pie, Apple Dumplin' (Tea Time Turtle) Apricot (with Hops-a-Lot), Lemon Meringue, Orange Blossom, Raspberry Tart, Cherry Cuddler (Gooseberry the Goose) and Lime Chiffon (Parfait the Parrot). In the 1990s Strawberry Shortcake was redesigned and updated. New dolls were added. Then Strawberry Shortcake had another reincarnation in the late 2000s.
