In several languages (English, French, German, Italian, Dutch,..)
these dolls are all called Cherry Merry Muffin. They were produced by
Mattel between 1988 and 1990. I'm not asking for the names of each
dolls but for the "brand" name if it exist any. Like if in other
countries they don't refer to these dolls as Cherry Merry Muffin but
as "XYZ". Please let me know if in some country the name is different
and what is this or these names.

Dear greeneyesgirl-ga;

Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. While
many products marketed internationally are known by various names this
does not appear to be the case with Mattel's Cherry Merry Muffin
dolls. For example, here is a Cherry Merry Muffin catalogue from
Germany and Italy that shows the name is the same there as in the US:


Here you will find a number of international catalogue pages,
including some from Greece, Switzerland, France, Italy, UK and others
that all refer to Cherry Merry Muffin dolls as ?Cherry Merry Muffin?
(in english) regardless of the host language:

I understand you are not interested in doll names but I wanted to
mention these since they are different names than their US
counterparts. Bubblegum Becky, for example, is known as Trudi Frutti
in Germany and in Switzerland. Other European Merry Muffin Land
characters include Sauerkuckuck, Ilonka and her son Gustav, die Fee
Pinpinella and Jajaba the witch.

In Germany specifically some of the characters are known as:
Cherry Merry Muffin
Apple Amy
Betty Berry
Chocolottie + Chokolottie
Ilonka Schrecklich
Gustav Schrecklich

In Italy specifically most of the characters? names are the same as in
the US but there is at least one that is exclusive to Italy: Paneamaro

The Japanese version also bears the Cherry Merry Muffin name but looks
a bit different from the US version. The characters some is a variety
of unique names exclusive to Japan:

So, in answer to your question, it appears that in this instance the
product is universally known by its English language name regardless
of where it is marketed.

I hope you find that my answer exceeds your expectations. If you have
any questions about my research please post a clarification request
prior to rating the answer. Otherwise I welcome your rating and your
final comments and I look forward to working with you again in the
near future. Thank you for bringing your question to us.

I'm really sorry. I should have mentioned that the (and is MY
website. I have an extensive knowledge about the subject. I just saw
someplace where the refer to "Dulcereza Panquecitos". I'm not sure
it's the name for Cherry Merry Muffin. But go have a look.

About the I've contacted the webmaster, she told
me the Cherry Merry Muffin dolls were never sold in Japan but she
liked the name and used it for her site about Blythe dolls. Nothing to
do with Cherry Merry Muffin. Except that she uses some Cherry Merry
Muffin playsets in some of her pictures.

I found no other references to "Dulcereza Panquecitos". This appears
to be an off-handed attempt to translate the words Cherry Merry Muffin
into spanish for the sake of her spanish speaking audience via the
term "cereza panquecitos", or literally "cherry muffins". I find no
support for the use of this name either officially or by way of an
unauthorized knock-off of the Mattel product.

You did an excellent job reserching my questions. However I'm sad
because I don't get more information I already had. I did a lot of
reseach myself before and came to the same conclusion. But thanks
