When I was little, the first time I got to decorate my own room I chose Strawberry Shortcake and my Mom really did it up! I had a Strawberry Shortcake comforter, curtains and pillows (not to mention shockingly pink walls!). I loved my Strawberry Shortcakes dolls and played with them daily. Now, my daughters have finally found the phenomenon and I love sharing my memories with them.
One thing we didn’t have when I was a kid was the opportunity to see Strawberry Shortcake come to life in a feature length movie! But on August 31st, two new movies will debut on DVD bringing the Strawberry Shortcake storyline in to the homes of little ones everywhere! From the press release:
“Winter is coming and it’s time for Strawberry and her friend to celebrate! A full-length CGI feature film, Strawberry Shortcake: The Glimmerberry Ball Movie follows Strawberry and friends as they prepare to celebrate the coming of winter with a secret gift exchange and a festive winter ball. But, when someone destroys their decorations and the girls all carve the same design in the Glimmerberry Ball lantern event, they have some mysteries to solve in an endearing fun-filled adventure.”
My girls both loved this movie! My oldest sat through the entire thing and chuckled as she watched the secret gift exchange unfold. I was amazed at the animation and I even loved watching my childhood “friends” come to life! In the second movie, Strawberry Shortcake: Berrywood Here We Come, Strawberry and friends head to Berrywood to visit Strawberry’s movie star friend, Limelight. When they arrive, they’re shocked to see not everything is glitz and glamour. They must come together to help Limelight realize that everyone can shine – because everyone is a star! In part two, Hooray for Berrywood! Strawberry and friends bring their Berrywood experience home and help re-open a local theater. By working all together as a team, they’re sure to make a berry-good movie!”
I enjoyed watching the movies with my daughters and sharing a little bit of my childhood with them. As a Mom, I liked that the movies were age appropriate, fun and also had a great message. Both DVDs had special features including some coloring pages which were a hit in my home. In my opinion, both of these movies would make excellent stocking stuffers for girls this holiday season! Find them on Amazon for $12.99!
