Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

With the supersaturated CGI pink explosion, giant heads, and fashion-conscious characters, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: THE BERRYFST PRINCESS feels a lot more modern, but a lot less wholesome. With their high-pitched helium voices and bouts of weeping, characters here feel more like tweens-in-training than sweet preschoolers, and with the frequent use of "berry" and other cutesy language, it feels a bit retrograde in some of the messages it tells girls about themselves (that they're emotional and prone to disagreements). However, there are positive messages here, as well as some educational merit on the voting process and the importance of teamwork.

Girls who already like the character and world here will find a passable story with some good messages, and parents who are not too concerned about this underwhelming presentation or girly overload can appreciate that ultimately these are positive tales of cooperation and kindness.

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.
