What's the story?
RAINBOW RUBY is a computer-animated children's series about a little girl with a big imagination. Ruby likes to spend time at her house playing with Choco, her teddy bear. But when Choco's heart flashes and plays music, they go to her room and and transport to Rainbow Village, where all her toys come alive. Along with her friends like Gina the wooden pirate, dolls Jessy and Princess Kiki, and of course, the town's mayor, Ling Ling the elephant, she works to solve any problems that come up, with the help of the contents in her Rainbow Roller bag.
Is it any good?
This colorful series, which airs around the world in multiple languages, is designed to teach kids about problem-solving. It also underscores how important it is to forgive people who may inadvertently create challenging situations. Ruby also relies heavily on the items she has in her fully stocked suitcase to fix each situation. As a result, Rainbow Ruby creates a lot of merchandising options. But this doesn't dilute the important lessons it offers about taking the time to think about resolving difficult situations, rather than getting upset or giving up, when they arise.
