Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

For its target age group, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: GROWING UP DREAMS -- with its bright colors, simple storyline, and mostly cheerful characters -- should provide seemingly endless entertainment. The songs are catchy and filled with positive reinforcement of the story's core values: teamwork, friendship, and politeness. And the careers the girls aspire to are ambitious and varied.

Girls between 3 and 5 should be well entertained, but the relentlessly pink and girl-oriented movie may turn off boys (even though they could certainly benefit from its lessons about politeness as well). And while parents may appreciate the story's positive messages and role models, its simplicity may grow old as requests for repeated viewing inevitably arise.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
