Ruby’s Studio The Friendship Show by the Mother Company is a movie set to help children understand what friendship is for and how to behave with friends. Ruby (played by Kelsey Collins) is the host of the show and is very energetic as she walks her four friends/classmates through educational points of friendship and has many featured animated segments and songs to break up the movie to keep children engaged.
I was provided a digital download to watch this show with my 4 year old daughter. I wasn’t sure how she would like it since it wasn’t a show about her favorite mouse or her favorite spanish speaking cartoon that has a monkey as a friend. In the first two minutes my daughter got excited about a rainbow and about how excited “Ruby” was in her opening! The show also gave me a fun art project that I can do with my daughter about making a friendship tree for a good friend. I hope to try this soon since I have all the supplies at home already!
It kept my daughter engaged and I was able to ask her some of the questions that Ruby was asking her “friends”.
Why are friends so important?
My daughter answered with because it is nice to share.
Who is your friend?
What do you like to do what your friends?
Play and sing.
We engaged in other conversation. My daughter really liked it. I actually have had “The Feelings Show” for a couple of years. I tried to have my daughter watch it at the age of 2 and she was too young. She is now 4 and we had popcorn and watched the entire 45 minutes together.
