Strawberry Shortcake brings back fond childhood memories for me. You see, I was a child in the 80s when Strawberry Shortcake was at her peak. Shhh…don’t tell but I had Strawberry Shortcake wall paper and sheets. So bringing back this retro lovable doll is a wonderful welcome in my household.
My youngest daughter was so excited to open the package which contained the DVD, Strawberry Shortcake: The Sky’s the Limit. She was excited because she has that yellow haired girl and ran upstairs to get her. See, mom, I have that girl. At the Blogher conference this summer, I attended one of the “Mommy” panels, which was sponsored by Strawberry Shortcake and we received little gift packs that included two Strawberry Shortcake dolls.
Eli, who is five, was not thrilled. However, once we started playing the DVD, he came out with quite a funny comment. It was funny especially after his complaining about having to watch what he considers a “girl” show. I could tell he was trying to find something positive because his little sister was so excited. You see, she watches all of the alien creature shows with him so it was her turn.
“They are really good singers,” Eli told us matter of factly almost surprised with himself. So this is what he came up with up in the opening act that could find that he liked about the show. I’m proud that he found something positive to share with us.
Now for Sofia, this is the greatest movie ever. As a mom and former original Strawberry Shortcake lover, I have to agree. This movie teaches valuable lessons about having good friends and how if you work together, “berry magical” things can happen!
Strawberry Shortcake: The Sky’s the Limit movie is 72 minutes long and recommended for ages 2 – 7. Includes Music Video” Cafe Cabaret” Sing Along and DVD-Rom printable coloring pages.
