Yep,looks like a bear to me. As a kid I loved collecting the pets as much as the dolls. Makes me want to look up all of the old pets and see who had what critter.

Should I admit this? I can probably tell you  :biggrin:

Aw! She's so cute!  I wish she had Melonie Belle though (her lamb pet)

Ah well, something is better than nothing.

If anyone is still looking for Peach Blush I noticed the Target I found her at has already put her on clearance. :sad:

I haven't seen her at my Target yet but I bet that's because they share a DCPI number. I remember getting a new Monster High 5 pack for clearance price because it shared DCPI numbers with the old packs they were clearing out. I wish I was lucky enough to find her near me so I can snag her for a bargain but knowing my current luck by the time they get her she will be full price again.

I never thought of them sharing the same DCPI number. If Target doesn't see the difference between Peach Blush and Strawberry Shortcake in their system than that makes sense why Peach Blush is being clearanced with the other characters.

I have not seen her at my Target stores either. Mostly Orange Blossom is who is left on clearance now. Perhaps more of them will come in with the next wave of releases or for the Xmas season.

*update* I just managed to find her on clearance at a Target in the next city over on the 31st. Her box was open at the top and a bit beat up but the doll looks fine. She was the only one there.

Think they'll release the Peculiar Purple Pie Man of Porcupine Peak and Sour Grapes?

I have my doubts that they will. I would actually probably buy them both if they did. They were significantly larger dolls though. Although they did make a Funko Pop of him.

The question becomes how long they will continue the line. The 2018 toy fair showed Apple Dumplin', Apricot and Cherry Cuddler all with their pets (assuming for this Xmas season maybe). To some degree (I was looking at my retro dolls last night) they have covered a lot of the characters already.

The following is from the Basic Fun Strawberry Shortcake Facts page:
"Please be aware that ONLY retro dolls and toys will be made and shipped through 2018. You are invited to take a trip down memory lane with Strawberry, Blueberry, Orange, and Angel Cake by visiting Target, Toys R Us, Cracker Barrel, JC Penney and other specialty stores. Peach Blush will join her friends in the assortment in stores this spring! We appreciate the support of fans and collectors for this toy line over the past 4 years and hope you have enjoyed all of our products."

To me, this sounds like they are ending the line. Which in some ways does not surprise me considering they are now making MLP retros. Realistically, the same people collecting Strawberry Shortcake are also some of the same people who collect MLP. The retro Strawberry Shortcake dolls were released for the 35th anniversary in 2015. MLP is now at 35th anniversary. So time to wind down one retro product line and start up another. I would love to see them both continue on of course, but I have the feeling they won't be continuing the Strawberry Shortcake line much longer.

Hmm, no way I think.  They were poor sellers even in the 1980s, and don't seem very popular with collectors either (low resale value)

I wish they'd do Berrykins dolls though-  but I suspect they are avoiding them since the little berrykin "critters" are slightly complicated, as are the dresses and long hair- so they'd probably be rather pricey.
