When I was in first and second grade, I was crazy about Strawberry Shortcake. I got two dolls for a birthday, and I still have my original Strawberry doll and metal lunch box.
For years, I wondered what happened to Strawberry's friend, Custard. Perhaps I lost her somewhere along the way. Then I looked up information online. My version of the doll never came with a Custard.
A few months ago, at my sister's house, a familiar little cat appeared in my niece's play house. This was the cat I substituted for Custard! They are reunited again.
While visiting some friends on New Year's Day, I mentioned that I'd bought a Strawberry Christmas ornament on clearance. My friend Amy went up to her bedroom and gave me this wonderful set of stained glass. They are seven characters and Strawberry's house. They now reside in my craft room window.
What's your favorite childhood toy? Do you still have it?
