I thought that I might as well go ahead and do my more detailed review post of my Strawberry Shortcake doll from Comic Con, since it is in keeping with the week's theme. ;)
To the best of my knowledge, this particular doll was only available at the San Diego Comic Con in 2010. I was thrilled to find one of my own on eBay earlier this year for a good price. :)
The review will be a little short since I'm not planning on deboxing this doll. I hope you understand. ;)
The box was sealed in plastic. I'm not sure if this side is the front or the back, but I usually display this side facing out, since it shows a photo of the doll.
This is most likely the front of the box, but I still prefer having the photo side out. ;)
The top of the box.
The bottom of the box.
I decided that I would go ahead and remove the plastic, because then I could at least open the box flaps and look at my doll. There didn't seem to be much point in keeping a doll I could never look at. ;)
This is the side of the box that opens.
The top flap has a strawberry-shaped hole that fits around the pink strawberry, which is slightly raised.
The flap with the raised strawberry opens on the other side.
Here's adorable Strawberry Shortcake! :D
She has an outfit that has much more detail than her play line counterparts. I didn't get a good picture of her hat alone, but it is a knit pink hat with cat ears.
Here's a closer look at her dress. Notice the red strawberry at her collar, the ruffles on her shirt, her fancy strawberry apron, her little strawberry charms, and the dotted overlay of her skirt.
It was hard to get a good picture through the box, but she also has a cute Custard charm hanging on her apron.
She has her traditional green and white striped tights, and adorable "fuzzy" pink plastic boots.
And speaking of Custard, here she is! As I shared in my last post, I don't believe that Custard was ever made for the play dolls produced by Hasbro. Custard is one of my favorite parts of this set.
This version of Strawberry Shortcake has identical face paint to the regular play line Hasbro SSC doll.
I'm not going to do my rating system for this doll since she's in the box, so this pretty much wraps up the review. ;) I'm very happy to have this doll in my collection, and I'm hoping I'll be able to stay strong and not fully debox her. ;) If I do cave in the future and release her from her prison, I'll be sure to share some pics on the blog. ;) Even in her box, though, she's adorable and enjoyable. I would highly recommend her for any Strawberry Shortcake fan.
