Max & Ruby is one of my daughter’s favourite shows. She frequently asks for “Mask, Mask, Mask”! This is what makes DVD’s so wonderful… “Mask” can be viewed at any time of the day – and even in the car! The newest Max & Ruby DVD, BunnyTales is released on January 11, 2011.
Here’s a synopsis:
The Princess and The Marbles
When Max and his marbles interrupt Ruby’s play, she tells Max he needs to be more sensitive to what other bunnies might want. She uses the bunnytale of the “Princess & the Marbles” to help him understand.
Emperor Max’s New Suit
Ruby wants Max to try on a new suit in the department store. When Max says “No new suit,”Ruby tells him the bunnytale about Emperor Max’s New Suit to explain why he shouldn’t be so picky about his new clothes.
Max and the Tree Little Bunnies
When Max’s blimp threatens to blow Ruby, Louise and Valerie’s paper dollhouses away, it’s time to tell the bunnytale of the Max & Three Little Bunnies.
Ruby’s Real Cinderella
Ruby and Louise want to play Cinderella, but they don’t want Max to join in because he’s too dirty and grubby. But when Grandma comes with the glass slipper, there’s only one grubby foot that fits in the shoe and only one Cinderella!
Ruby’s Hoola Hoop
Louise is trying to teach Ruby how to hoola hoop, but Max’s toy “Bugs!” keep getting in the way. When one of his toy bugs falls down the back of her dress, Ruby finally finds her hula wiggle.
Max and The Martians
The Bunny Scouts want to see Mars through their telescope, and Max finally helps them aim their telescope in the right direction with his toy “Martians!”
Ruby and Louise want to build a castle out of blocks but Max just wants to keep adding more. Ruby has to remind Max that more doesn’t mean better and they want their castle to be perfect. By the time they’re done, the girls discover that Max’s additions have actually made their castle perfect!
Ruby and Louise are playing hopscotch while Max is playing with his cement truck and keeps picking up their stones. Ruby has trouble hopping all the way up and down without losing her balance, but when Max’s cement truck dumps its contents on the hopscotch game, Ruby deftly hops through all of the squares, picking up each of the stones.
Max befriends a grasshopper while Ruby and Louise are trying to do a Bunny Scout experiment to measure how quickly their bean sprouts grow. When Hoppy starts eating the bean sprouts, the girls are devastated until they realize they can alter their experiment to measure how much higher a grasshopper can hop if it has more energy.
Ruby’s Water Lilly
Ruby and Louise are determined to make the most beautiful picture out of leaf rubbings, using a leaf from each of the trees in their backyard. Meanwhile, Roger is keeping Max busy by teaching him how to kick a field goal. When Max’s football keeps landing near their project, the girls get frustrated. And it’s Max and his football to the rescue, when they just need one more oak leaf to make their project complete..
Max Saves the Parade
Ruby and Louise are making a float for their dollies for the Fall Fun Festival Parade. Meanwhile, Max and Roger are making a car for the Cool Car Cavalcade. In the end, the Cool Car is the perfect way for the girls and the dollies to be in the parade.
Super Max’s Cape
It’s fall, so that means it’s time for the harvest! Ruby is all prepared to harvest all the yummy vegetables that are ripe from the garden. Max is enlisted to set aside the most beautiful vegetables for her “Horn of Plenty” table decoration. Unfortunately, Max is unable to resist the temptation and by the time Ruby gets inside to start creating her horn of plenty, it’s a horn of empty!
DD loves Max & Ruby, and this DVD is great. These mini videos bring some classic tales to a more simple level for kids to understand. Many of which have some important life lessons. Not all of the shows are a “bunnyTale”, but most of the first ones are. There are also some of the movies that I have seen before, including the Horn of Plenty, which I believe is on the last DVD as well.
DD can watch Max & Ruby over and over again. I especially love bringing this in the car because it keeps her entertained (and makes our car rides very enjoyable). I don’t think that you can go wrong with Max and Ruby, all the parents that I talk to say their kids also love the show. Even as an adult I enjoy Max & Ruby, and so does my husband and my mother. It’s not one of those shows that is going to drive their parents crazy. 12 episodes back to back of Max & Ruby is perfect for the relaxing Sunday car rides.
