Max & Ruby: A Visit With Grandma

Max & Ruby: Visit With Grandma

Max & Ruby is one of my daughter’s favorites and she even has a brown, stuffed bunny she named Louise after Ruby’s best friend. A new DVD was just recently released on June 15th titled A Visit With Grandma and they are fun filled episodes that include grandma, who is always there at the right time to make Max or Ruby feel like a million bucks. I honestly think we like every episode, but her home run, lemonade stand and handstand episode are ones to note. 

Sit back with your kiddos and take some of their adventures into your own backyard by making some lemonade, going on treasure hunts and get the kiddos to de-clutter their toys by getting them involved in sorting for a yard sale! 



NEW YORK – May 18, 2010 – Come along as 
Max & Ruby embark on variety of new-to-DVD adventures. They’ll go on an awesome treasure hunt, make “mudpies” and perform their very own recital in the backyard! Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, Max & Ruby: A Visit with Grandma will be released on DVD June 15, 2010, for the suggested retail price of $16.99, and features four all-new episodes never released on DVD before!

Nickelodeon’s Max & Ruby is a half-hour animated comedy series based on the children’s books by Rosemary Wells. Each episode centers on Max, a determined three-year-old bunny, and his big sister, Ruby, a smart, goal-oriented seven-year-old. The show offers an empowering message for children by showing Max and Ruby playing together and resolving their differences in ways that are respectful and supportive.
