In the 1980's The Berry Princess was introduced but only appeared in the final special, "Strawberry Shortcake Meets the Berrykins". She served as caretaker for the Berrykins until letting the Strawberrylanders adopt them.
- The Berry Princess has a more human-like appearance when compared to the other characters, having a tall, slender build unlike the children's chubby features and The Peculiar Purple Pieman's cartoonish physique. She has golden-blonde hair, with a braid going across the top of her head. She has a purple flower on either side of her head. She possesses Caucasian skin, blue eyes, and pink lips. She wears a dress like Glinda's, from The Wizard of Oz. It has a purple bodice with long, gold-trimmed, purple sleeves and a poofy, light purple skirt. She carries a wand.
- She is a very kind and loving person who cares deeply for the berrykins and Strawberrylanders. She is even nice to The Peculiar Purple Pieman, the person creating the cloud over Strawberryland.
