Typing on behalf of my 2 and 5 year old daughters, they would say...we love this movie! We love anything Strawberry Shortcake.
But since I"m the one typing, I will say, the movie itself is fine, but I HATE the new strawberry shortcake. Hate the new look, hate the new toys, hate the new voice, hate the new movies. I think I made my point. Why do they always have to change a good thing? There was NOTHING wrong with the old strawberry shortcake, why did they change her, make her super itty bitty, give her a less friendly voice, and go back to making Custard the cat not talk? We always love a talking pink cat.
On a positive note...Angel Cake is gone...I remember as a child, she was my FAVORITE I loved her hair, clothes, smell, just thought she was really neat...but in the previous SS cake movies she was, as my 5 yr old describes her, bossy and whiney..which always made me angry they did that to her. In the new SScake series, they have eliminated the character and seem to have used Lemon to fill her spot. No more Huck or Purple Pieman, or Sour Grapes, which kinda made us sad. There is no true trouble maker in Berry Bitty City anymore which may be seen as a plus for the new ones and better for viewing by younger children.
Anyway, if your kids love SS, they will love this movie, and prob the new doll they sell to go with it.
UPDATE: I have to edit my review...after watching the new shows on the new kids channel..The Hub; I have to admit, that the new Strawberry Shortcake is growing on me, though it did take awhile. Actually, my daughter is starting to lose interest in her, funny how that works!
