Perfect for Halloween! Oct 24, 2008
I used to love Strawberry Shortcake as a kid, oh more than two decades ago [yup, she's been around that long!] and when I saw this DVD, I thought of checking it out with my 3.5 year-old daughter. We loved this show - "Moonlight Mysteries" deals with two themes, that of overcoming fear [of the dark] and also overcoming prejudice against the unknown and making a new friend.
In "Ginger Snap's No-Light Night of Fright", Strawberry Shortcake sends out invitations for a camp-out but Ginger Snap tries to avoid it because she's afraid of the dark. Eventually SS and friends help Ginger overcome her fear. In "The Blueberry Beast", SS and friends think there's something weird about a spooky-looking old house when it turns out that it's the home of Blueberry Muffin, a new girl.
Some parents raised concerns that their child/ren were frightened after watching this DVD. Well, I watched it with my 3.5 year-old and she was fine. I guess kids react differently but of course, I would recommend parents watch this with their child if the child is under 5 [and I would recommend it for the 3 and above age group]. As for the learning factor in this DVD - well, it helps children discuss their fears [my own daughter used to be afraid of the dark until recently] and also about not judging things by their appearance. All in all, I'd recommend this as a Halloween viewing treat for the preschool and above age group.
Too scary Sep 3, 2008
It was too scary for my little girl. I would recommend for girls over 6 years only. Seriously. We haven't slept thru the night after watching this. If you choose to get this anyway - my simple recommendation is to watch the entire movie without your child before showing it. We love all the other strawberry shortcake dvd's... this one just didn't fit the mold of cute, happy, etc, etc that all the other dvd's use.
The dvd introduced many more concepts than I thought it would. Lots of reasons to be scared. Especially the dark. Every kid is different, and it just didn't work for us. We will never watch this movie again.
eye candy...not educational at all Oct 26, 2007
ask yourself as a parent, what do I want from my children in 5-10 years? Do I want a kid who only cares about fashion and superficial friendships? These movies are fun but they are just introductory to fashion savvy and friendships based entirely on those values. The new strawberry shortcake has lost the message the orginal one had. The original was about being a kid, overcoming enemies with kindness, and having diverse friends with many different interests- Having friends with glasses etc.The new ones are all about having friends with cute shoes and pretty bathing suits.
Delightfully Spooky... Oct 15, 2006
I think this is one of the better SS DVD's.My now three year old granddaughter received ths last year for her second birthday and it continues to be one of her favorites.There are two different stories.The first is about Ginger Snap overcoming her fear of the dark.The second is about a house that is supposedly inhabited by the "Blueberry Monster" that turns out to be Blueberry Muffin and her pet mouse Cheesecake.These are great episodes for the Autumn/Halloween season.
Spooky cute! Mar 5, 2006
The Strawberry Shortcake videos are adorable, age-appropriate, have lots of catchy music, and are just plain sweet! My 4 year old daughter especially loved this one - the characters are pretty delightful to look at, and there is always a wholesome lesson learned in the end. I'm glad my daughter enjoys these - I do too because they let kids be kids.
