Mei-chan loves Strawberry Shortcake.

The fun-loving cartoon character first appeared as a greeting card design in 1977 – way before Mei-chan was born, of course.

Strawberry Shortcake has since been given a makeover, evolving first into a tomboy-looking adventure-seeker, and later into a wide-eyed, pink-haired people-pleaser.

Some of her friends from Strawberryland were also given new last names (Raspberry Tart to Torte) and the berry hero herself was last rumoured to have stolen Huckleberry Pie’s pet dog, Pupcake.
