There are a lot of toys that have been brought back, but they are nothing like the originals. They do not even make the new ones close to what the originals were like. I wish I could share these toys with my kids in their original format, quality and design that does not even compare to the new ones that are available now.
Strawberry Shortcake and Friends
I had the entire collection of Strawberry Shortcake dolls. I had them all and there matching houses and accessories. I had the Pie man also, the bad guy of the Strawberry Shortcake dolls. These were amazing, their outfits matched their scent perfectly and everything on them smelled like their fruit. These were so cute and adorable. I had the matching Strawberry Shortcake picnic set that was inside a huge strawberry and attached to a large snail to roll along. These were so much better than the dolls now that just look like regular dolls with the same names. My dolls had different hair styles and I had the little boy too and their matching pets also, that smelled just like them.
My Little Pony
My Little Pony usually hung out with Strawberry Shortcake and Friends. My Little Pony had unique markings and smelled many times like their markings. Though the ones now are similar, they still don’t have the same pretty hair and fun names. Plus, there are so many accessories now, they are more like another horse toy.
My brother had the entire Star Wars series from every movie. I played with him a lot because of Yoda and Princess Leia. He had the figure case that was in the shape of Darth Vader’s head and he had all the different accessories from the movies. He had the ship and all the different creatures. The Star Wars figures now are okay, but they are not very well made and do not have the same details as the original toys. Plus, they all look so cartoonish now instead of realistic.
Holly Hobby is no longer made at all as far as I know. I had Holly and her friend. I had their matching house and all the house accessories , such as the wood burning stove and the little loaves of bread and bread pans to put the bread in. I had their clothing and all the furniture to go with the house. This was probably one of my favorite toys and sets. I loved her gingham dress in blue and white and the matching bonnet too that had flowers all over it. Her friend was adorable as well and everything was so well made and sturdy. They had soft yarn hair and happy faces. I still have some of the set pieces left and it’s been 30 years. My daughters play with them. I loved this play set.
Raggedy Ann and Andy I had original Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls. I loved these so much. They were medium sized dolls and they had wood in the bottom so that they could sit upright better. T hey had yarn hair each and the identical clothing to the books that I had. They had soft bodies and again were not very big. They were perfect to sleep with.
