Our Rating


Cupcake Digitals Latest Strawberry Shortcake Story & Activity App Surfs Into Summer Fun Season Start your summer off right with Strawberry Shortcake Summer Fun! This wonderful new app greets users with 4 areas to choose from – a story, two games, and coloring pages. The story includes favorite Strawberry Shortcake characters and a story line based on the new Strawberry Shortcake DVD – Fun Under the Sun. As users scroll through the pages, enticing sparkles point out multiple interactive features on each page. Our testers loved finding sunglasses from Pupcake’s and Custard’s bags and then placing them on Strawberry and her friends. Our youngest tester scrolled through Strawberry’s personal phone photos over and over again! Parents will love that the words change colors as the narrator reads each word – encouraging read along skills. The narrator will even read one word at a time as users tap on each single word. The app does take a few extra seconds to load each storybook page, but our testers didn’t seem to mind — they were happy popping bubbles developers included to help pass the time as pages loaded.

In the Berry Blast game, users connect three or more like colors in a row – vertically, horizontally, diagonally, or a combination. A quick visual and auditory demo plays automatically each time the game is opened. Players earn different badges as they pass through multiple levels. Our users loved watching Strawberry’s outfit change as they passed through the levels.

Surfs up in the Berry Bitty Surfing game! Users collect fruits to earn points as they surf along the waves – but watch out for rocks, whirlpools, and buoys! The more points you earn, the more surfboards and new characters are unlocked in the Tiki Hut. This was the favorite among our testers

The app includes 6 different summer-themed coloring pages. Here you’ll find the typical coloring pages’ features – stickers, paint bucket, crayon, chalk, spray paint, eraser, etc. An added bonus is that the app automatically saves your current picture “as is” to come back to later. Users also have the option to take/save their creation in their personal device photos. Another plus we discovered for young users: as they start to color a particular area, color marks stay only within that area until they lift their finger from the screen (i.e., as the water area is colored blue, an accidental touch on the sand does not turn it blue, but when the water area is touched again, the blue coloring continues). Picture shadings and details are automatically included as you color, giving your final picture that professional look.

Strawberry Shortcake Summer Fun is a universal app available in the iTunes App Store, Amazon Appstore for Android, Google Play, and for NOOK, Tabeo, and Nabi devices. The app is child friendly with gated App store access to prevent accidental child access to the internet. It’s designed for children ages 6-8, but our testers (ages 4 – 10) all loved it! I even found myself getting wrapped up in the Berry Blast game
