What parents need to know

Parents need to know that personal and social themes like self-esteem, friendship, responsibility, and honesty are the foundation for this very sweet series for preschoolers. In each story, the colorful characters must work through a new trouble of some kind (solving a mystery or taking responsibility for a troublesome pet, for instance), and their willingness to work together and meet challenges has great messages for this impressionable target audience. The show is part of a marketing franchise that includes toys, books, videos, and just about everything in between, so don’t be surprised if your kids take a liking to these products after watching.

Didn't really watch much of it

Only had Bright Lights Big dreams, Berryfest princess, and the glimmerberry ball. Didn't really see much of it. I think maybe I had the dog show one too.

What's the story?

Berry Bitty City is the friendly little hometown to a colorful group of friends who enjoy playing, laughing, and working together. Strawberry Shortcake (voiced by Anna Cummer) and her pals Plum Pudding (Ashleigh Ball), Raspberry Torte (Ingrid Nilson), Orange Blossom (Janyse Jaud), Blueberry Muffin (Britt McKillip), and Lemon Meringue (Andrea Libman) are never short on fun things to do, and whether they’re playing at the pond or enjoying a cool drink at the café, their adventures always teach them a little something about the world around them.

Is it any good?

A generation of girls has grown up with Strawberry Shortcake and her pals, and the icon’s 30th anniversary now ushers in more sweet fun for a whole new group of kids in STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE BERRY BITTY ADVENTURES. Young kids will be pleased as punch to join Strawberry and her friends on a regular basis, and parents can rest assured that their kids are being treated to a hefty helping of social lessons along with the fun adventures.

For those moms who have fond memories of Strawberry from their own childhood, this sweet series -- with its modern CGI look -- offers a great opportunity to cuddle up on the couch with their youngsters and take a trip back to a tiny land where friendship can turn any day into a reason to celebrate.
