Yes, it’s true. There is such a thing as toddler crack. Have you heard of it before? Can you guess what it is?
Before I even give you a clue, let’s see if you know what it is………
Ok here are 3 clues:
1) The sister is annoying (that should give it away)
2) They don’t have parents in the show
3) They are animals that talk
Soo…………who are THEY? This toddler crack that I speak about.
It’s Max and Ruby. Pure and udder toddler crack. It’s free crack if you have cable
Besides asking about her brother, this is what Princess Peach asks for in the morning after drinking her milk. It’s also what she wants to watch before bed at night (we learned our lesson about that one and no longer is allowed to watch close to bedtime).
Everyone knows about my dislike of Calliou and how annoying he is. He was eventually banned from our house. Lucky for us, Princess Peach has only asked to watch him on one occasion. I don’t think that I will go to the extent of banning Max and Ruby but there has to be something about the show that kids are addicted too. I, as an adult, don’t get it!
Ruby is a totally biatch. She is so mean to Max in every episode. She never lets him do anything and constantly says “no” to him. “No Max you can’t go outside”, “No Max you can’t take the frog home”, “No playing in our band Max”. If you haven’t paid attention to it yet, you know will! Max, however, I’m pretty sure is delayed. He only ever says 1 word an episode. There has been a few episodes where he does string two words together but those episodes are very rare. He is very clever though and the word of his choosing is the last word of the episode typing everything together!
It also drives me nuts that they don’t’ have parents. There is a picture on the wall of them with parents, we have met their grandmother who lives down the street, and in another episode they visit their aunt and uncle. But why no parents?! Max and Ruby do many things that children should not be doing alone like taking a bath, going to the fair, fundraising for Ruby’s scouts group.
(side note: can you tell I’ve watched way TOO many episodes that I have clearly dissected the entire series)
I don’t know what it is about this show that brings Princess Peach back for more each time, but if Max and Ruby was a drug she’s clearly addicted
What shows do your kids love? Maybe I can find a few new ones to introduce her to!
