Vintage Strawberry Shortcake fans?

Heehee, I'm such a kid at heart! My sister & I began re-collecting some of these dolls and things that we had as kids. The new SSC dolls have been out and I don't know but I just don't like them the way I do the old ones. So we started re-collecting again :) It started with my sister finding this HOUSE (that we did not have as kids) at a yard sale for only $5! Then we both started finding things on eBay to fill the house, lol.

So I decided one day (a non-craft I don't feel like working day) to set up the house and make it all pretty. Here's the 'front' of the house where theres a little mailbox and even a porch swing. See Strawberry Shortcake getting the mail? I love her striped tights and little shoes.

I set up the dollies inside the little rooms. They are all doing different things... let's see how many we can identify! This is my newest CONTEST to win a doll making prize package.

I'm going to show close ups of each of the rooms. Email me with the names of each of the dolls you see in each room - like Strawberry Shortcake at the mailbox. Hint: you can look for pictures of each of them on google if you aren't sure of the names.

Attic: (4 dolls and one pet)

Outside balcony: (2 dolls)
Bathroom (eek close the curtain!) - 1 doll (um nekkey) Heehee, strawberry shaped potty!

Bedroom (2 dolls) look closely!
Living Room (3 dolls, 2 pets):
Kitchen: (2 dolls, 1 pet)

Bonus Questions!!!
1. What does this special 'snail ride' become after the dolls get to their destination? (hint: what's inside the big strawberry?)

2. What's the name of this transportation? 3. Who's the tall guy with the bird on his arm? OKAY Offical contest information.... Just email me ( your answers no later than April 15th (midnight). All the correct answers will be posted here shortly after the winner is announced. You must get the answers right to be entered; for each bonus question you get right, you get another entry! I will draw ONE lucky winner to win this ultimate doll makers kit:

This is a $200 value prize! You get tea stained muslin, several half yard cuts of different homespuns I carry on my website, some fun and shabby fat quarter fabrics, Vintage Doll Spray (exclusive by Homespun from the Heart), several trims and notions, turning tool set, Mark B Gone pen, vintage blue tinsel, vintage toys for your dolls and your choice of any 3 patterns PLUS the doll making guide for beginners with Candy Cane Ann Pattern on CD. And the winner gets this prize shipped to their home!

GOOD luck to everyone!

Oh my gosh this brings back memories! LOL I still have several of my dolls from MANY years ago and I refuse to give them away even though I have two boys and no girls to play with them. LOL Thanks for the memories, Cindy! Great contest by the way. *hugs*
