Strawberry Shortcake Gets a Makeover at 30

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

It looks like Rainbow Brite is not the only toy getting a makeover.  Strawberry Shortcake has a new look, too.

Today’s New York Times reports (here) that the new Strawberry Shortcake will be introduced by Hasbro at this year’s Comic-Con (huh?).  Writer Brooks Barnes sums it up with, "[G]oodbye, poofy grandma bonnet; hello, yarn hipster hat."

I do like the fact that she gets phalanges instead of mitten-hands, but the Raggedy Ann look worked just fine, IMHO.  Pink hair, not red hair.  Ho-hum.
