Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road & Bloomin’ Berry Garden

Who does not love Strawberry Shortcake, as a child I grew up with Strawberry Shortcake, and I am so happy that my daughter is a fan too. There  are two new DVD's that are now available:

Everyone’s Berry Best Friend Returns
in Two Fun-Filled Adventures Arriving on DVD March 6

Strawberry Shortcake is back just in time for Spring and is so sweet you will need two helpings!  Touching the hearts of children for decades, this wildly successful franchise is back with two more magical tales, Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road and Strawberry Shortcake: Bloomin’ Berry Garden, blossoming on DVD March 6 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

First, Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road follows Strawberry and her friends as they retell the classic “Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”  When a cyclone blows Strawberry to the strange land of Oz, she runs into trouble with the Wicked Witch and must journey to the Emerald City to ask the Wizard how to find her way back home.

 Next, Strawberry Shortcake: Bloomin’ Berry Garden shows that it’s time for garden growing fun with Strawberry and her friends as they prepare for the Spring Flower Festival!  But when magical sparkles make the Berrykins grow tall and the girls shrink down small, they discover that even when they’re tiny, they can make a big difference.

Our take:

Growing up in the 80’s  Strawberry Shortcake was a big part of my life, I had the dolls, the lunch box and the sheets (and yes I still have them all, my daughter even uses the sheets). Perhaps she may want to use my lunch kit too one day? I am sure as soon as she sees it she will love it!

I was so excited when I had the chance to review the two new Strawberry Shortcake Dvd’s Strawberry Shortcake's BLOOMIN' BERRY GARDEN   and Strawberry Shortcake's BERRY BRICK ROAD DVD. I know I am just a kid at heart, I just love to share something I loved when I was a child with my daughter.

When my daughter saw the dvd’s she was so excited too! She loves Strawberry Shortcake as much as I did when I was little, it is cool having a little me.

The show was a lot different than I remember with a bunch of new friends in the show. My daughter kept asking me if they had this or that character when I was little.  Yes some of the old friends I remember were gone, but there were so many new “dessert” friends now.

Strawberry Shortcake's BERRY BRICK ROAD DVD- this was a favorite of mine, it was so cute. I am a big Wizard of Oz fan, and this was such a retelling of the story. There is still a twister, and a witch but this is a more kid friendly story.  I love the cute little spin on the movie.

Strawberry Shortcake's BLOOMIN' BERRY GARDEN- this just made me happy that spring was almost here. I am so tired of the winter. My daughter loved this the most, she especially loved the Berrykins, they were adorable, I have to admit.

Berry Brick road is 46 minutes and Bloomin Berry is 66 minutes long, so they are long enough to keep the kids interest, and they will not get bored.
My daughter loved the extras as well, we printed out the coloring pages, and she had fun with that.

After my daughter watched the two films, she could not wait to watch them again. I told her she could tomorrow… now we are off to play with my Strawberry Shortcake original doll, for a bit. And yes she still smells like strawberries after nearly 30 years!

I would recommend these films for any young  girl in your life, and if you were a child in the 80’s you will appreciate the films too.
