Strawberry Shortcake - Adventures on Ice Cream Island
NYC Mom | 12/01/2004

"As my almost 4-year-old daughter is a big Strawberry Shortcake fan, we snapped up this title as soon as it was released and were very unhappily surprised to find the story included a villain and a storyline my daughter found to be disturbing and scary. She was horrified to see Honey Pie and the other ponies locked up in a cage, despite the ponies ultimate escape. Needless to say, my daughter took an active dislike to this video and insisted that the DVD be banished from our home. Moms beware. This release does not hold true to the sweet stories typical in the first three Strawberry Shortcake VHS/DVD titles. I don't know what DiC Enterprises was thinking when they tinkered with the format. If future releases continue in this fashion, we will not be buying."
Now that's much better:}

"I am a macho fan of Strawberry Shortcake and all the things that involve her. Since I was a tot, I was obsessed with her. Now that she has made a return, I see that ,other than her outift, the whole attitude of the story has changed, making it more like a self help movie than an adventure story. The first 4 DVD's were OK, but too preachy sounding. This new DVD features 2 adventurous set around a berry special memory book Strawberry keeps. The 2 adventures involve a magical place called Ice Cream Islands and the sweet, My Little Pony style, fillies. There are 2 new characters, a Purple Pieman style gent named Licorice Whip and his Bery bird Raven. With magical fillies and a mischievious * but not too scary* villan, Strawberry Shortcakes Adventures on Ice Cream Island is sure to make your day Berry sweet:}"

"As a parent, I welcome any Strawberry Shortcake DVD into my home because I know that my girls will not only be entertained but get a lesson or two as well. And the songs are so catchy we bought the SSC Seaberry Beach Party Music CD to jam to in the car!
In Adventures on Ice Cream Island, SSC is looking through her "remembering book" and tells two tales to Honey Pie Pony. In the first story, HPP feels lonely because she is the only filly in Strawberryland. SSC and her friends search for other horses to make her feel more at home. On Ice Cream Island, HPP realizes that true friends don't have to look "just like you."
In the second story, the friends return to the island for the Festival of the Fillies. HPP, the Grand Marshall, will lead fillies Orange Twist, Cookie Dough, and Milkshake in the parade. But resident meanies Licorice Whip and Raven spot HPP standing on her head and plot to horse-nap this talented horse for their show. My three-year-old daughter was a little disturbed by Licorice Whip the first time through. Now she asks for the DVD and is not bothered at all.
Songs on this DVD: "Prancing Paradise" "Back Together" "Festival of the Fillies" "My Gift Horse Gift" "Tell Me A Story" - as a separate music video
Special Features: Introduces Berry Special Friends Honey Pie Pony, Honey Doodle (bee), Angel Cake, and Vanilla Icing (lamb).

"My daughters 8 and 4 love horses. So naturaly they love this DVD, however they hate the "bad guy" in it. All the Strawberry Shortcake DVDs we own are very happy so I thought this one would be like the others. They love the 1st episode on this DVD, but not so much the 2nd. Too bad the 2nd one has to be about a greedy guy who kidnaps Strawberry's horse!"
