You all know that I collect Strawberry Shortcake and have been obsessed with her since 1979.
When I started collecting again in the 90s and started to join collector communities, I found photos of
this elusive item and remember going to the store and begging my mom to buy it. She refused
because she knew I didn't like blueberries and probably wouldn't eat them!
I've been looking for YEARS, but of course, people usually didn't keep this box.
A few years ago I got an amazing lot of SSC items from a sweet collector named Emily. Turns out we grew up a couple of blocks apart. We would have been besties if we knew each other!
This box was in the lot, along with several other items I've been looking for for the last 30 years or so!
(I made a video of that haul! It's below the photos.)
