Mexico, Peru and Guatamala Dolls
In Mexico Strawberry Shortcake is known as Rosita Fresita.  Lily Ledy was the toy company that made the dolls.  I have recently started to collect this line of dolls.   The major differences in this line are - different tights ( the white stripes are thinner), slight clothing variations, and the bodies are made of a softer material and appear shinier. Also, some of the later dolls have extremely hard heads. Dolls do not have copyright info on the back of the heads but may have numbers imprinted.
