Strawberry Shortcake & Friends become the first-ever Scented Funko Pop! Vinyls...

Written by

I've written a surprising amount about Strawberry Shortcake here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine over the years (18 articles by current count) - one of the timeless pop culture properties that I grew up on and played with alongside my sister, and now enjoy with The Rock Daughters™. My friends at Entertainment Earth have just sent over details on the first-ever scented Funko Pop! Vinyls, and they're appropriately from the world of Strawberry Shortcake & Friends, borrowing from the classic styling of the original characters from the 1980s. The first wave includes Strawberry Shortcake and Custard, Blueberry Muffin and Cheesecake, Orange Blossom and Marmalade and Lemon Meringue and Frappe. They're expected to ship this September. Check 'em out...





Now, could Funko help a brother out and make Huckleberry Pie and Tom Tom? That would be really cool!
