Just felt like drawing the little gal the other day. I remember I had several of the storybooks as a little girl - ones with those lush, charming watercolour renderings of the fruity little gang. When I look at the revamped Strawb & Friends today with their little jeans and modern flip do's and pseudo-Bratz ensembles, I wonder 'When did it stop being okay to just be a little girl?'. Why do even toys aimed at 5-yr-olds have to be 'cool'? You are NOT supposed to worry about things like that at that age.
You want cool and with-it? Grab a Barbie, that's her job. But leave the classics out of it, kthnxbye.
