Give the Kids a Treat with Strawberry Shortcake: Growing Up Dreams

Mouth watering from all the great strawberrylicious recipes at ? I can’t wait to create a shortstack of Strawberry Hotcakes, with Strawberry Lemonade on the side, then later have some Berry-licious cupcakes and  Berry-licious whipped topping for desert. Strawberries have to be my absolutely favorite berry. I never wanted plain cake for my birthday – I wanted Strawberry Shortcake!

So of course, when the Strawberry Shortcake characters first started appearing on greeting cards I got those for my birthday, too! Now, years later, Strawberry Shortcake and her friends are back, in a new video about growing up and following your dreams.

Strawberry Shortcake and her friends can’t wait to grow up, and as they let their imaginations soar into the future it all gets berry exciting! Dreaming lets them see what it will be like to have busy careers and where those careers will take their friendships. But when Peppermint Fizz becomes Mayor, she becomes berry berry bossy and trouble starts brewing in Strawberryland.

Growing Up Dreams is all about getting along and working together, but it is also about believing in yourself and your dreams. Plus, no matter how big you get, you should never outgrow being nice!

This is a great DVD for a rainy day when you are eating those Strawberry Hotcakes with your little ones, and because of that Albany Kid wants to make sure you can have one for FREE! All you have to do is answer one simple question:

What does Peppermint Fizz become when she grows up?

  1. Peppermint Patty
