Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (53):
Kids say (62):

Positive and admirable as their behavior may be, one obvious question arises: Where are Ruby and Max's parents? Nonetheless, their world is a utopian one, in which everything is safe and cared for. Max and Ruby's tales allow a comforting, fictional escape for young viewers.

It's refreshing to see a series in which the subject of play is so emphasized. The series is visually compelling and understated in its composition.Though it offers little in terms of educational value, Max and Ruby is a comfortably paced series for preschoolers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
