For me or them??

When I was little I loved Strawberry Shortcake. I collected all the little fruit smelling dolls so maybe I decided this was a good idea for me and just brought the girls along!!
I was looking for a photo of Strawberry for this post and came up with this comparison and was surprised. I knew she was updated but didn't seem to remember how much until I saw this. I found this photo on a blog post about how everything for children is so sexually advanced now and although I thought her post would be extreme I found myself agreeing with most of her ideas. I mean they have made all the characters in this movie thinner, wearing shorter skirts, taller boots and longer stripper hair. This seems to be the way of the world.
In the end the movie was fun and the message was a great one. It showed how they were supposed to work together but the girls each got caught up in their own thing and let a friend down. They did finally work together to complete the Berry Festival after all.
Next Month the Care bears-Another 80's favorite of mine.
All we need now is a Smurf Movie and I am in Heaven.

In grade school I was teased about Strawberry Shortcake being my girlfriend I think because of my first name and height at the time. Admittedly, the new version may not have been so difficult to endure... >;)

OMG I think they should have left it alone....The new one is skinny and a little on the "sexy" side... HMM... I wonder where all the little girls are getting their image issues??? The old one is FAR better. I can still smell that fabulous combination of strawberries and new doll plastic... I LOVE it!!!
