LULA’S GARDEN PARTNERS WITH STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE TO LAUNCH THEMED GIFT BOX COLLECTION AS LIMITED-TIME OFFER
─Collaboration in celebration of National Strawberry Month─
New York, NY – May 1, 2023 – Lula’s Garden, an eco-friendly succulent plant gifting company, and WildBrain, a global leader in kids and family entertainment, are collaborating on a limited-time offer gift box collection inspired by the beloved children’s brand Strawberry Shortcake. Aimee Baldassaro, Chief Experience Officer of Tenth Avenue Commerce, made the announcement.
In celebration of National Strawberry Month, the Lula’s Garden collection of specially designed Strawberry Shortcake planter gift boxes launches today for pre-order. Containing beautiful hand-planted succulents from Lula’s Petite Garden line, the sustainable boxes are adorned with beloved characters from the classic Strawberry Shortcake brand, including Strawberry herself and her adorable best friends, Orange Blossom, Blueberry Muffin and Lemon Meringue.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Lula’s Garden to celebrate National Strawberry Month for Strawberry Shortcake fans with these gorgeous sustainable gift boxes and succulents,” said Elizabeth Litten Miller, Vice President of Franchise Strategy at WildBrain. “So many of today’s moms have such fond memories of their childhood Strawberry Shortcake dolls and watching her shows. We just love that these new gift boxes from Lula’s Garden continue to celebrate the nostalgia for the brand across generations.”
Originally born as a greeting card character in the 1970s, Strawberry Shortcake grew to become a worldwide sensation in the 1980s with multigenerational appeal and over $4 billion in global sales. The sweet little girl with the bonnet, who loved baking, has since been reimagined to find new adoring fans with each generation. In 2019, WildBrain launched a fresh, new Strawberry Shortcake—featuring a new look and entrepreneurial spirit for today’s kids—through the brand-new animated series, Berry in the Big City. Celebrating stories of diversity, creativity and friendship, the series is available now on Netflix and WildBrain’s official Strawberry Shortcake channel on YouTube. Also rolling out exclusively on Netflix beginning this year, Strawberry Shortcake fans will be able to enjoy four new CG-animated seasonal specials from WildBrain, celebrating Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.
“One of our goals with partnering with WildBrain to create the Strawberry Shortcake Collection was to give mothers and kids an opportunity to bond over the shared experience of these iconic characters cherished by multiple generations,” said Baldassaro. “And we especially loved Strawberry Shortcake’s message of empowerment for young girls through the kid-friendly entrepreneurial characters in the new WildBrain series.”
Pre-orders for the limited-time only Strawberry Shortcake Petite Garden launch May 1, the beginning of National Strawberry Month, with product available for fulfillment May 17 through June 30.
