Gentle Halloween Fun With Max & RubyOct 10, 2005
By Janet Boyer
"Author, Tarot Maven, Homeschooling Mom"
I bought this video for my son's birthday, and he's been watching it every single day--sometimes more than once a day!
Max and Ruby's Halloween features episodes like:
Max wants to be a vampire for Halloween, but Ruby needs a little prince to match her Cinderella costume. Will max choose the tricks over the treats?
RUBY'S LEAF COLLECTION
One fall day, Ruby asks Max to help with her Leaf Collection Book. Max loves collecting leaves--maybe a little too much!
THE BLUE TARANTULA
Max wants Ruby to read him the tale of "The Blue Tarantula". Will the scary story keep her brother up all night?
RUBY'S PANDA PRIZE
At the fair, Ruby really wants to win a panda prize. But will Max's jellyball obsession get in the way?
RUBY'S ROLLER SKATES
Ruby needs to practice so that she can roller-skate to Grandma's house, but Max's tow truck game keeps getting in the way.
The Bunny Scouts can't tell their scary campfire story until Ruby gets Max to sleep. But Max wants to hear the scary story...and make it scarier, too!
I'm really not sure what it is about Max & Ruby that enthralls my son so much. In an era of CGI animation, snazzy songs, and fast-paced action, he consistently watches his other Max & Ruby DVD, and now, this video. Ruby is gently bossy, trying to get Max to do what she wants. Max, of course, has his own ideas! (And like my husband asked me the other day "Where in the world is the mother in this series?")
But my son really enjoys Max & Ruby and it's great that parents and caregivers won't have to worry about innuendo, MTV-paced sequences, shrillness or meanness with these characters.

Nice children's showOct 07, 2005
I bought my 3 1/2 yr old this DVD about a month ago, and she LOVED it, so I also bought the other 2 Max and Ruby DVDs (the Christmas and Easter ones), and she also loves those. And the theme of the holiday featured is only on one or two of the many episodes on the DVD, so they are definitely year-round watching. It is a good value for the amount of shows here. The show is about Ruby and her little brother Max, and all shows feature them. Sometimes Ruby's friend is on an episode, sometimes their grandma from down the street, but no parents, just the brother and sister, and they get along wonderfully. Ruby is so sweet and patient to her little brother, which is a good example for my daughter. The show is sweet and slow paced with easy plots for little ones to follow. I would say the age range would be 15 months to 4 years. This show is 100% for children, though, so it doesn't have the appeal another sweetly paced show, Kipper, that adults would enjoy too (I highly recommend you check out Kipper), but Ruby and Max is truly enjoyed by my little one and is a good investment.
(Along with Max and Ruby and Kipper, I also recommend Maggie and the Ferocious Beast-- very sweet too!)

Once again, Max and Ruby RULE!!!Sep 15, 2006
By Ve Ferry
Just as with all the other Max and Ruby dvds, this one is over the top with fun, charm, and whimsy. My grandchildren love The Blue Tarantula in this dvd, but the entire dvd is chock full of seasonal fun. Watching this dvd makes us feel like fall is just a breath away. It also includes Max and Ruby's Thanksgiving which is positively delightful. Any Max and Ruby fan cannot miss adding this to their collection. Wonderful!

Love ItOct 17, 2005
Bought this for my 3 year old son to prepare for halloween. He loves Max and Ruby, so it obviously was a hit. I was also impressed with the number of episodes there are on the DVD. Definitely worth it!

A great Halloween additionOct 11, 2005
By American Girl
"mother of two"
I purchased this for our 3 year old and she has watched it 10 times already. This is a great addition to any one's DVD collection for little ones. It kept her attention and was not scary or too frightening for her. It really is too sweet to pass up!
