Once again Strawberry Shortcake has come out with a fun and friendly DVD. Berry Friends Forever came out on March 5th. The friendship theme revolves around good manners and how to stay BBFs (Berry Friends Forever). The DVD also features two music videos for the kids to play and dance with. The extra features are always a hit with children. While most of my girls are a bit old for Strawberry, I still have an eight-year old who can get Berry-comfortable and a three year old niece to share the berrys with!

Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Best Manners for Kids Guide
The following 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!
