-- THE MOTHER COMPANY LAUNCHES THE LATEST IN THEIR CHILDREN'S SERIES- RUBY'S STUDIO: THE FRIENDSHIP SHOW
Los Angeles, CA: Driven by the mission to “Help Parents Raise Good People,” The Mother Company is proud to announce the launch of their second childrenʼs program, Ruby's Studio: The Friendship Show. This new episode in the award-winning Rubyʼs Studio series features adorable live-action host, Ruby, who leads young viewers (ages 2-7) on an engaging adventure through fun animated sequences, art projects and original music, all geared toward helping kids to resolve conflict, show empathy and encourage kindness towards their peers.
Research indicates that children who have trouble making friends are more likely to engage in risky behavior and can fall into a downward spiral of depression and anxiety. “Our experiences in the world are shaped by how we connect to other people. From early childhood, few things are as crucial as successfully making and keeping friends. We want to help young children navigate that experience,”
says Abbie Schiller, CEO and Founder of The Mother Company. “The ability to make and nurture long-lasting friendships is not inborn but rather a multi-faceted skill that children must learn; Rubyʼs Studio: The Friendship Show offers essential tools to boost social skills and give kids a leg up toward building successful relationships throughout life,” says Samantha Kurtzman-Counter, TMC President. Author and parenting expert, Dr. Robyn Silverman, guided the Friendship curriculum and provides the expert advice for Pop-Up Parenting™- an optional DVD feature designed to provide helpful tips for struggling parents.
Ruby's Studio: The Friendship Show is part of an independent series slated for release on DVD and download over the next two years. Vetted by world-renowned early childhood experts, upcoming episodes include Ruby's Studio: The Safety Show and Ruby's Studio: The Siblings Show, both set for release in 2013. Multiple award-winning Ruby's Studio: The Feelings Show was a bestseller at Whole Foods stores nationwide, and garnered raves from kids, parents, teachers and press alike, including “DVD of the Year” by Creative Children's Magazine. Each show also offers companion books and digital apps to provide a comprehensive learning platform for children. The Mother Companyʼs shows and books are set for national distribution through Ingram in January 2013.
