Giveaway: 'Strawberry Shortcake: The Glimmerberry Ball Movie' DVDs

It's winter time in Berry Bitty City, so Strawberry Shortcake and friends are preparing for the occasion by carving lovely lanterns and exchanging secret gifts in the recently released DVD "Strawberry Shortcake: The Glimmerberry Ball Movie."

The CGI-animated DVD (MSRP: $14.98), from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and American Greetings, runs about an hour but is divided into three manageable story lines that have the Strawberry Shortcake pals overcoming obstacles, dealing with frustrations and ultimately working together to celebrate the winter holidays in style.

In the first outing, Strawberry and friends are playing a kind of "Secret Santa" game, and "re-gifting" is taken to a whole new level. Bookworm Blueberry Muffin finds the, uh, perfect gift for her giftee, Lemon Meringue -- a book about organizing books. (Yawn. Well, that's Lemon's reaction, anyway.) So she gives it to Plum Pudding, who gives it to Orange Blossom, who gives it to ... well, somehow it gets back to Blueberry, who loves it, but then realizes something's up.

It's a story about giving friends gifts that they'll like, rather than something you would like to have for yourself.

The two other stories find the girls discovering the traditions of the Glimmerberry lanterns and preparing for the Glimmerberry Ball.

Special features include a sing-along, read-along storybook and printable coloring pages.
