Disappointing . . . Bring Back The Former Strawberry!

"I must admit I'm a big fan of the former version of Strawberry Shortcake and was very leary when I heard they were re-inventing her. But I tried very hard to go into watching this movie with an open mind hoping I would be proven wrong. Unfortunately, I wasn't. Even if you can adjust to the new look (which isn't all that bad and not quite as grown up as I was thinking it would be), the storyline and characters are unimaginative and boring. You definitely don't get the feeling each girl is her own unique individual with quirks and character like the former Strawberry Shortcake gang was. My huge Strawberry Shortcake fan who is almost 4 years old, quit watching the movie mid way through. She was bored. I fell asleep. Missing are classic characters such as Honey Pie Pony, Ginger Snap, Angel Cake, and Huckleberry Pie to name a few. There's odd caterpillar and berrykin characters who just add a strange element to the whole mess. And then there's the uninspired world in which they live. Instead of imaginative places like Ice Cream Island, Cake Walk, the River Fudge, and Cookie Corners, you get a very unimaginative world that looks too much like reality . . . just a bunch of rocks and bushes. And Strawberry and her pals are miniature now . . . living down under the bushes. So to sum it up, don't waste your money or time on this particular movie. And if the first movie is any indication of what's to come, my daughter and I will be sticking with our collection of past Strawberry Shortcake DVDs."
Boring and vapid

"Yet another reboot for Strawberry, and this time it's an epic failure. My 4-year-old has been a HUGE SS fan for the past year, even had her birthday party with a SS theme last year. "Big Country Fun" is one of her favorites, and we really like the "Journey" movie as well. We own all of the DVDs and watch them often.
Unfortunately, we really could not get through this newest reinvention. We tried on three occasions to watch credits to credits and failed every time. There are characters missing--Honey Pie Pony is a favorite that's now MIA--and the animation/digitization is awful. And it's SO boring! After three attempts, I still have no idea what the movie was about. With the older movies, the characters seems like real people functioning in their real little world, but the new characters are just alien. It's strange and my DD is really upset. She doesn't have any interest in the toys at all already has told me that if another movie comes out, she doesn't want to watch it."
Disappointment; Not as cheery as former Strawberry Shortcake

"I was expecting a smiliar format to the other Strawberry Shortcake movies, but it is not. I don't mind the makeover she's had, but this movie was not as cheery and fun as previous. There are FEW songs in it, just a lot of talking which is not fun for smaller kids...My daughter, who loves Strawberry Shortcake, was not excited baout this movie as she is with the other ones. I would not spend 14.99 on this movie. instead, use that money and go buy the other, older Straberry Shortcake movies to enjoy! Some of my daughter's favorites include: Adventures on Ice Cream Island, The Best pets Yet, and Big Country Fun."
For older kids

"My 4.5 years old daughter got scared by the story line. We had to turn it off after 10-15 minutes and told her she would watch it when she grows up some more. I think this re-invention also changed the target group to older girls but I wish they can change more gradually. I would be careful with this and next DVDs."
