Max & Ruby: Rainy Day Play DVD will be released on April 12, 2011 for the suggested retail price of $16.99.
Nickelodeon’s Max & Ruby is a top-rated animated series based on the children’s books by Rosemary Wells. Each episode centers on bunny siblings Max, a determined three-year-old and his big sister, Ruby, a smart, goal-oriented seven-year-old. The show offers an empowering message for children by showing Max and Ruby playing together and resolving their differences in ways that are respectful and supportive.
Max & Ruby is a sweet show. Unlike lots of other kids’ programming, this show is quietly entertaining. Max, the little bunny brother, brings humor and his sister, Ruby, teaches kids the correct way to behave. No loud theme songs, flashy graphics or repetitive phrases here – just a cute show based on a line of children’s books. My kids liked watching this DVD while I made dinner – a time I usually try to calm them down. It worked like a charm.
