My 2 Year old loves this show my issues with this show is the lack of representation and the fact that Ruby lie’s to her parents when she has to go help the village. I hope they change this for future seasons otherwise we may have to stop watching.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (3):

This colorful series, which airs around the world in multiple languages, is designed to teach kids about problem-solving. Rainbow Ruby also underscores the importance of friendship, forgiveness, and helping others. Ruby relies heavily on the items she has in her fully stocked suitcase to fix each situation -- usually introduced by Mayor Ling Ling. As a result, Rainbow Ruby creates a lot of merchandising options. But this doesn't dilute the important lessons it teaches about exploring, learning, and trying your best to resolve difficult situations, rather than getting upset or giving up.

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.
