~I am a Fox Home Entertainment Insider and received a copy of the DVD for review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
When I was a little girl I had a Strawberry Shortcake doll whose hair smelled just like sweet strawberries. We did everything together. In those days (way back in the 80s) Strawberry Shortcake was the most popular toy and her and her friends were the greatest thing to watch during those T.V. specials. For many years (and generations) Strawberry stayed at my grandmother’s house for another little girl to pick up and love, probably literally to pieces. Just as my doll has stood the test of time, so has the Strawberry Shortcake Franchise which had gotten an incredibly beautiful new makeover in this last decade.
I was really excited to watch Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Bitty Mysteries. I may be a 30 something year old woman, but Strawberry Shortcake has always been one of my all time favorite characters. There’s something special about seeing the past revitalized for today’s generation and I have to admit that she is a lot cuter now than when I was young.
Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Bitty Mysteries is a mystery adventure where children must follow clues to find missing VIPs (Very Important Pets), but most importantly it also teaches girls how to face their fears with stories of friendship and understanding.
Strawberry Shortcake’s friends include (though some not featured in the DVD):
- Blueberry Muffin
- Cherry Jam
- Huckleberry Pie
- Lemon Meringue
- Raspberry Torte
- Plum Pudding
- Orange Blossom
There are also many wonderful coloring pages available to download from the DVD Digital Copy, however, you can also print out these to share with your Strawberry Shortcake fan!
The DVD Digital Copy can also be instantly transferred to your portable media players, including Smartphones. Along with the DVD you also get the Strawberry Shortcake Berry Best Friends Story App (available for iOS & Android). This is an interactive story that teaches early learning skills, but also includes games! Your child can create different hairstyles, the best manicure and match rows of fruits to make the best smoothies!
Strawberry Shortcake and her friends have grown up a lot since I was little, but I still love her stories. They’re infused with “girl power”, are family approved and also have lessons that young viewers can understand. You can find out more about Strawberry Shortcake the T.V. series by visiting HubWorld and can pick up Berry Bitty Mysteries for $12.78 on Amazon!
