Cupcake Digital and AG Properties, the intellectual property and outbound licensing division of American Greetings Corporation, are giving Strawberry Shortcake fans a new way to play with the beloved character and her berry best friends Cherry Jam, Orange Blossom, Lemon Meringue, Plum Pudding and Raspberry Torte. Kids are invited to create their very own berrytastic masterpieces with paint, crayons, stickers and more in the latest Strawberry Shortcake Color & Play app, available today on the Apple App Store, Amazon Appstore for Android, Google Play and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store. The app is free with four additional themed coloring packs that can be purchased for 99 cents each or a $2.99 bundle. Each pack offers ten coloring pages and ten stickers in a variety of popular themes from the series, including friendship, dance, seasons, pets and princesses.
"Strawberry Shortcake’s world is such fun, and we enjoy giving her fans a new way to play with all kinds of coloring effects, stickers and themes. I like to embellish a scene with stickers featuring berrykins, flowers and butterflies," says Cupcake Digital Lead Producer Rachael Perriello.
The Strawberry Shortcake Color & Play app is designed for children, ages 6-8, to easily tap and perfect how they color and create each page by selecting from various tools, a broad color palette and cool stickers. Completed works of art are automatically saved and can easily be shared by parents through the camera feature on their device.
