Popcorn & Coffee: Strawberry Shortcake: Campberry Stories

Not Rated; 66 minutes; $14.98; Amazon
Now available to own on DVD and Digital HD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is Strawberry Shortcake: Campberry Stories, featuring 3 episodes from the computer-animated series.

Strawberry Shortcake was first introduced as a greeting card character for American Greetings in 1980. The character became so popular that a slew of merchandise, television-specials and animated series quickly followed.

The latest series, Strawberry Shortcake's Berry Bitty Adventures, aired from 2010 to 2015. The "Campberry Stories" DVD contains three episodes from the series - "Tall Tale Trio," "Berry Big Tale Teller," and "The Berry Bitty Great Race."

The 3-part episodes centers on Strawberry and her pals heading off into the woods for their annual campout. While Apple Dumpling tries to make a how-to-video on how to put up a tent, the rest of the girls sits around a campfire and tells tall tales. In the first episode, Orange, Plum, and Cherry tell some outrageous stories; Sweet and Sour tells an imagined adventure in the second episode; and Apple gets to tell everyone about how she won the "great race."

Special Features includes:
  • Printable Coloring Pages and Activity Sheets (DVD-ROM drive is required)
  • Best of Sweet Sunshine Adventure
  • Strawberry Shortcake and Friends
  • Berry Sweet Mash-Ups

Final Thoughts: Summer is the perfect time to go camping with your family and your friends. Strawberry Shortcake: Campberry Stories is the perfect DVD to teach younger kids how much fun you can have camping. While Strawberry Shortcake is targeted for girls, there's plenty of fun and adventures in these three episodes for boys to enjoy as well. These episodes have great computer-animation, a talented voice-cast and cute stories!

Overall, I liked watching Strawberry Shortcake: Campberry Stories and I recommend the DVD to others.
