Cupcakes :: Re-Issues ~ Emco (2015)
"Cupcakes hide inside 'til it's time to surprise!"
Cupcakes were produced by
Tonka in 1990 then by Kenner from 1991-92. They
were a series of scented dolls with plastic skirts which
when turned inside out transformed into edible
goodies with their hats becoming the icing. Along with the
dolls there were several playsets and accessories
Cupcakes had a small revival in 1998 when Fun Source re-issued a few of the dolls. They were produced by Radica in 2005, Estrela in 2012-15 and Emco in 2015.
They were sold in the US, UK and other parts of Europe and I currently know of one name variation:
- UK & US: Cupcakes
- Italy: Le Sorpresine (Surprises)
