This review is from: Strawberry Shortcake Playset - Berry Cafe (Toy)
First I would like to say that my DD loves Strawberry Shortcake (SS) and I spent a lot of time choosing which sets to purchase for her birthday.

My DD loved the way the box looked in the store (the presentation in the box is very "attention grabbing") however, after I bought it for her birthday and opened it I was immediately disappointed.

Waaaay to expensive for what it is. Half the pieces were gone before we even finished the party and it is pretty much a "shell of a house". It doesn't even close to hold those tiny pieces...so...no chance of keeping them anyway.

There is no handle so my DD could not transport it around the house as she likes so I have to move it for her....It's not heavy, just bulky for my DD.

It should have included at least one of SS "friends" so my DD could actually pretend she was having a tea party as the set-up seems to suggest.

Also, I tried to find a few "friends" and discovered that you have to buy other play-sets to get even one that is the same type.

The SS you get in the package has plastic hair and is a different size than the individually sold characters you can find next to the play-set at the store.

When you buy sets that have the friends, they also contain SS so I end up with 3-4 SS's and 1 of each friend.

More money and frustrating...

Meanwhile....My DD has started to use her SS dolls to play in her regular dollhouse she received last Christmas. More frustration....maybe I should have just bought the dolls...oh, wait you can't.

All in all, I found this particular set to be a complete waste of money...and the entire line to be uncoordinated. The house should have been more substantial and the characters should be able to be bought individually or as a "friend" set.
