“Strawberry Shortcake Holiday Dreams Collection”: DVD review and GIVEAWAY!

I loved Strawberry Shortcake when I was little, and this is a toy collection that I am so glad that it is returning for my kids to enjoy too.
I was excited to review the all new Strawberry Shortcake adventure series on DVD~ three DVD's in this collection of favorite adventures. “Strawberry Shortcake Holiday Dreams Collection” was released on October 7th. The three DVD's that come in this great gift pack include: “Berry Merry Christmas,” “Big Country Fun” and “Let’s Dance.” This is a perfect gift to get for Christmas.
Here is what the movies are about:
Berry Merry Christmas - Christmas is coming!
Strawberry Shortcake wants to do something special for her friends, so she travels to a magical place called Holidayland with Honey Pie Pony, searching for the perfect presents. And she finds them! Then, a trip to the North Pole and a visit with Santa make the adventure truly wonderful. Unfortunately, a pile of melting snowballs turns Strawberry's carefully selected gifts into a soggy mess. In the end, Strawberry learns that the best gift of all is the gift of friendship.

Let’s Dance - Strawberry Shortcake and her Friends love to dance – and the Peculiar Purple Pie Man of Porcupine Peak is taking advantage of that! He has Sour Grapes open a phony dance studio, posing as a famous teacher … so she can keep the kids busy while he plunders the berry crops, but things don’t go as planned. Sour Grapes begin to enjoy teaching Strawberry & Friends and can’t bring herself to betray them, much to Pie Man’s chagrin.

Big Country Fun - Yee-ha! Strawberry Shortcake and her friends are in for some of the berry best fun in the West! Strawberry and Angel Cake take jobs at the Berry Prairie Dude Ranch and turn out to be excellent little cowgirls! But when the two friends must compete to become “Best Ranch Hand,” they lose sight of their responsibilities – and their horseback riding trail! Will they realize that being careful and listening to direction is more important than winning? More challenges gallop in when the Purple Pie Man tries to put Carmel Corn’s farm out of business so he can replace it with an amusement park – PieManLand! Hoping to help out, Strawberry and her pals put on a good old-fashioned country fair to earn enough money to keep their berry favorite farm in business.

Big Country Fun is my favorite DVD in this Holiday series. I know a few little girls who would love this set for Christmas or an upcoming Birthday! (besides Madelyn) The “Strawberry Shortcake Holiday Dreams Collection” comes with 5 Holiday greeting cards from American Greetings. The cards are post cards, so it is a fun way for kids to mail them to friends or family. Of coarse the cards are of Strawberry Shortcake and friends.

Heather said...

I like Strawberry Shortcake because she is the icing that holds everyone together. My favorite episode was when everyone was planning their annual get together before the cold weather came. They decided to have a campout and one of the girls was really scared. After she dodged the invite for awhile from Strawberry Shortcake, she finally told her that she was scared of the dark. Strawberry Shortcake promised to not tell the others. The girl conquered her fear and Strawberry Shortcake never told the secret. That's a true friend there.

I LOVED Strawberry Shortcake when i was a kid. I liked how their hair smelled like their name. I also liked Appling Dumpling and Lemon Meringue. They were so much fun to play with. My daugher is almost 2-1/2 now and i know she will enjoy it too.
