Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Friends Forever now on DVD
When the very formal Berry Bitty Buggy Derby is revived, the girls are unfamiliar with the traditional behavior for the event. Blueberry starts off as the resident expert, but eventually gets so obsessed with manners she does more harm than good. In the end, the girls work together and learn the true meaning of being BFF’s or Berry Friends Forever.
What we thought:
My girls are big Strawberry Shortcake fans (so is their Mommy!) so it’s no surprise that they loved this movie.  The graphics are very pretty, colorful, and crisp which makes this movie so much fun to watch.  I asked my girls what their favorite thing is about this movie and they both said they love the Berrykins.  As a mom I really like that this movie teaches a positive lesson on manners but in a fun way.  After watching the movie my girls and I discussed all sorts of proper manners including Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Best Manners for Kids Guide below.  There are lots of cartoons out there that my kids would like to watch but I consider them junk.  With Strawberry Shortcake we can watch enjoy watching the DVD together and then share a special time talking about the lessons, too.

Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Best Manners for Kids Guide
This feature will highlight some of the “berry” best manners that Strawberry and Blueberry would approve of! Your kids will learn how to be on their “berry” best behavior everyday with this fun guide!

Keep Your Elbows Off the Table
While the origin of this table manner is still up for debate, it’s “berry” polite to keep your elbows off the table while eating! Resting your elbows on the table while you eat makes you prone to accidental spills and other mishaps, while remembering to keep your elbows off the table ensures that food, utensils, and drinks remain on the table and out of your lap!

Always Use Your “Inside Voice”
It’s easy to get excited when talking about something you love and are excited about, or when having fun with your berry best friends, but it’s important to always use your “inside voice.” If you’re invited to a formal event like the Berry Bitty Buggy Derby like Strawberry and her pals are, you’d have to do your best to not yell to show your excitement!
Always Use “Please” and “Thank you”
Always remember to say, “please” before asking for something, and “thank you” when someone does something to help you. Using “please” and “thank you” isn’t just a way to be polite when asking for something, but it’s also a nice way to decline someone’s offer. Let’s say a friend offers you a snack at their house, but you’re allergic to the food – what do you say? “No, thank you!”

Knock Before Entering
If someone has the door to their bedroom, the bathroom, etc. closed, you should always knock and ask for permission to come in before entering. In general, people shut doors when they don’t want company, so if you want to be on your “berry” best behavior, you should always knock!

Chew With Your Mouth Closed
No matter how yummy your food is, always remember that those you’re eating with don’t want to see your chewed food hanging out of your mouth! Even though everyone enjoys tasty food, it’s important to chew food with your mouth closed so that you don’t accidentally gross out your dining companions. Chewing with your mouth closed also helps you keep from dropping chewed food on your clothes and the table. Another “berry” good tip: don’t talk with your mouth full of food either – it’s considered polite to finish chewing and then speak!
