More Strawberry Shortcake Book Review
About the Book: Strawberryland is so "berry " sweet, who could possibly resist going back for another visit? Jan Lindenberger and Jennifer Bowles have returned from the place where strawberries grow all year round to bring us another volume of Strawberry Shortcake collectibles. Originally introduced as a greeting card design by American Greetings, Corp., this sweet-smelling little girl and her many-flavored friends became the playmates of children everywhere through the 1980s. These children have grown up, but they never forgot Strawberryland-now Strawberry and her friends are in high demand on the collectors' market. This volume covers not only the dolls themselves, but the many many miniatures, toy sets, foods, premiums, and even a chapter for "fabulous fakes"!
Our Take: We love toy collecting here at the Legion and as such we love toy collecting guides. In fact, we just reviewed the first Strawberry Shortcake Collector book. My wife collects Strawberry Shortcake, so these books have been extra helpful in identifying not only items and accessories within her own collection, but also help her to set her sights on what else is out there to find. This next edition of Strawberry Shortcake items covers the dolls and a lot of items again, but also delves into all the knockoffs and more of the side items! This one has tons of full color images and is a wonderful field guide to collecting! We highly recommend it!
