I've written a surprising amount about Strawberry Shortcake here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine over the years (18 articles by current count) - one of the timeless pop culture properties that I grew up on and played with alongside my sister, and now enjoy with The Rock Daughters™. My friends at Entertainment Earth have just sent over details on the first-ever scented Funko Pop! Vinyls, and they're appropriately from the world of Strawberry Shortcake & Friends, borrowing from the classic styling of the original characters from the 1980s. The first wave includes Strawberry Shortcake and Custard, Blueberry Muffin and Cheesecake, Orange Blossom and Marmalade and Lemon Meringue and Frappe. They're expected to ship this September. Check 'em out...

While it's easy to look at something like STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE and see it as something simple, like a toy or a cartoon - there's always been something else brewing beneath the surface... a signature philosophy that "Anything is Possible." As parents like my wife and I raise daughters as part of a new generation of powerful little girls that will one day become powerful women, we often find ourselves saying those very words - "Anything is Possible" - and we believe that to be completely true. Think of all the accomplishments that Humankind has achieved - many of which just in the past 100, 50, 25 or even 10 years - and it becomes clear that even the most far-fetched or outlandish idea that some would say "can't be done" most certainly can. Tonight I'm sharing with all of you a sneak-preview of a video that will make its public debut in NYC on October 3rd - a video that all young girls should see...

2015 Rock Father Holiday Wish GuideWhenever I discuss STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE here on the site, there always seems to be a preface that I've written about the residents of Berry Bitty City a lot over the past five years. Like STAR WARS, RAINBOW BRITE, JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS, CABBAGE PATCH KIDS, the CARE BEARS, et al, Strawberry Shortcake falls into that category of "classic characters" that are truly timeless. This year, she's celebrating her 35th Birthday, and the folks at The Bridge Direct are turning back the clock with some retro-reproductions of classic dolls, and they're keeping their modern series rolling as well, with some new releases perfect for the upcoming gifting season. In fact, I'm including all of the items featured right here in my annual Holiday Wish Guide!

I've written a lot about STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE and her friends here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine over the past few years (Shout-out to Huckleberry Pie!), and the reason is probably very simple: Strawberry Shortcake is classic. Now comes the release of STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: BERRY TALES from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, and we're teaming up to get one lucky reader hooked-up with a copy of these new adventures to share with their family!

It's a weird thing - this whole "unboxing" phenomenon. Thousands of people - YouTubers, bloggers, entertainment writers, talk show hosts, and just folks at home - all putting their own spin on opening products, recording it, and presenting it to the world. Sure, we jumped into the game as well with UNBOXED - a regular YouTube series on my channel that compliments and accompanies proper reviews here on THE ROCK FATHER - but now it's really going mainstream, and nothing may have made that any more clear than when Jimmy Kimmel welcomed boxing legend Mike Tyson to JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! a few weeks back to do a little unboxing as well... of a STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE doll. Now, to make things interesting, the folks behind Strawberry Shortcake had a "mystery box" delivered here to Rock Father HQ for The Rock Daughters to take a look at... but that's not all. We're gonna give YOU a chance to do some unboxing of your own, with a shot and winning one of each item that the girls unbox in the video below. Ready?

It was more than two years ago already that I reviewed the Season Three Premiere of STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: BERRY BITTY ADVENTURES. While the switchover between The Hub Network and Discovery Family Channel may have stalled things a bit, the fourth season is finally on the way (premiering June 20th), and new viewers are finding the series through the themed DVD collections released by 20th Century Fox. On the latest collection, STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: BERRY BEST IN SHOW, we're taken back to that Season Three Premiere, and one of the reasons why I loved it so much: Huckleberry Pie. Yes, the sole male resident of Berry Bitty City finally made his modern-day debut, and the latest DVD collection focuses on something very close to his heart - pets. Want to win a copy of this new DVD? Read on, friends, because THE ROCK FATHER and the FHE Insiders just might get you hooked-up!
