Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2008
Three charming Strawberry Shortcake adventures will be available in one specially designed gift pack. The popular titles, "Berry Merry Christmas," "Big Country Fun" and "Let's Dance" make up the Strawberry Shortcake Holiday Dreams Collection, which will be in stores October 7 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
All three stories share the typical fun and adventure that fans have come to expect:
- Berry Merry Christmas - It's the berriest, merriest Christmas ever with Strawberry Shortcake and Honey Pie Pony and all their friends! Christmas is coming! Strawberry Shortcake wants to do something special for her friends, so she travels to a magical place called Holidayland with Honey Pie Pony, searching for the perfect presents. And she finds them! Then, a trip to the North Pole and a visit with Santa make the adventure truly wonderful. Unfortunately, a pile of melting snowballs turns Strawberry's carefully selected gifts into a soggy mess. In the end, Strawberry learns that the best gift of all is the gift of friendship.
- Let's Dance - Strawberry Shortcake and her Friends love to dance - and the Peculiar Purple Pie Man of Porcupine Peak is taking advantage of that! He has Sour Grapes open a phony dance studio, posing as a famous teacher … so she can keep the kids busy while he plunders the berry crops, but things don't go as planned. Sour Grapes begin to enjoy teaching Strawberry & Friends and can't bring herself to betray them, much to Pie Man's chagrin.
- Big Country Fun - Yee-ha! Strawberry Shortcake and her friends are in for some of the berry best fun in the West! Strawberry and Angel Cake take jobs at the Berry Prairie Dude Ranch and turn out to be excellent little cowgirls! But when the two friends must compete to become "Best Ranch Hand," they lose sight of their responsibilities - and their horseback riding trail! Will they realize that being careful and listening to direction is more important than winning? More challenges gallop in when the Purple Pie Man tries to put Carmel Corn's farm out of business so he can replace it with an amusement park - PieManLand! Hoping to help out, Strawberry and her pals put on a good old-fashioned country fair to earn enough money to keep their berry favorite farm in business.
