Once September hit, the temps got cooler and trees began to turn. It's such a pretty time of year and I find myself wishing it could stay this way until next summer. Unfortunately that can't happen, and soon the snow will be piling up in our driveway. Although winter is not my favorite time of year, I have to admit that it has been fun watching Kaelyn enjoy the snow over the past couple of years, and I look forward to seeing Kaden do the same.



Excitedly, Kaelyn recently asked me when the snow would begin to fall. Although I had to break it to her that it wouldn't be for a while yet, she was happy to see that we received the Max & Ruby: Everybunny Loves Winter DVD to review.

Max & Ruby is one of her favorite telelvision shows. It's cute and seems to grab her attention for an entire episode. I find myself enjoying this Nickelodeon hit and was looking forward to sitting down with Kaelyn joining Max & Ruby on their winter adventures. Knowing how much she loves Max & Ruby, I had a feeling she would like, and I was right!

Max & Ruby: Everybunny Loves Winter! is a new DVD adventure featuring four all-new episodes never before released on DVD. These winter-themed episodes show Max and Ruby playing and having fun in these now, making gingerbread houses and even playing duck, duck, goose!

The DVD includes the following Episodes:
Ruby's Snowbunny/Ruby's Snowflake/Duck Duck Goose
Ruby’s Snowbunny-Max wants to zoom down the hill on his “Sled!” but Ruby is intent on making a huge snowbunny and she needs Max’s help. When it turns out they’ve built the snowbunny at the bottom of Rocket Run, the only way to get the snowbunny safely out of the way is by using Max’s “Sled!”

Ruby’s Snowflake-Grandma and Ruby have made three snowflake-shaped cookies and now Ruby wants to surprise her by decorating them all exactly the same. Max wants to sample his “Snowflake!” right away. When Max tries to get a cookie, he causes Ruby to spill sprinkles and icing so all of the cookies are decorated differently. Ruby’s upset, but when Grandma comes, she points out that her cookies are perfect – they’re all different, just like each and every “Snowflake!”

Duck Duck Goose-Max wants to play “Duck Duck Goose!” with the girls, but they have to find 5 winter birds for their Bunny Scout badge. When the girls have only found 3 birds, they discover that Max has lured the last 2 kinds of birds – “Duck Duck Goose.”

Ruby’s Gingerbread House / Max’s Christmas Pass / Max’s New Year
Ruby’s Gingerbread House-Ruby and Louise want to make a perfect gingerbread house for Grandma for Christmas. Max is intrigued of course by all of the “Candy!” It’s going fine except that the girls can’t get the walls to stick, and finally the thing that’ll make them stick is the addition of Max’s favorite “Candy!”

Max’s Christmas Pass-Christmas is over and it’s time to take the decorations down. Ruby is sad but realistic. Max doesn’t want the feeling to end, so he confiscates the Christmas ornaments and creates a makeshift Christmas tree so it can still be “Christmas!”

Max’s New Year-It’s New Year’s Eve and Grandma has invited Max & Ruby to stay with her and watch the new year come in. Ruby is so concerned with staying awake that she contrives all kinds of games for them to play, and in the end both she and Grandma are fast asleep by the time the clock strikes midnight, leaving Max alone to wake them up with “Happy New Year!"

Ruby’s Horn of Plenty / Max’s Big Kick / Max Says Goodbye
Ruby’s Horn of Plenty-Mr. & Mrs. Huffington ask Ruby to keep Baby Huffington happy while they set up their picnic in the park. Max wants to be “Super Bunny!” Ruby thinks Baby H might want to nap so she tells Max he’ll have to take off his cape and play something else. But when Baby H gets fussy, the thing he really wants is that cape and “Super Bunny!”

Max’s Big Kick-The girls are trying to perfect their synchronized swimming routine. Max wants to play with all of his toys that “Float!” Of course his toys always get in their way, but Max ends up providing the girls with the big finish they were looking for, with the help of his “Float!”

Max Says Goodbye-Ruby tells Max they’re going to spend the whole entire day playing at Louise’s house, but Max can only take a few toys. So he decides to say “Goodbye” to all of the toys he won’t see for the whole day. When Ruby finally gets Max out of the door, they run into Grandma, who wants to play pirates with them. Ruby explains that they’re going to Louise’s, but when she tries to lead Max away, he takes Grandma’s hand and has one word for Ruby: “Goodbye!”

Max’s Balloon Buddies / Ruby’s Penny Carnival / Ruby’s Big Win
Max’s Balloon Buddies-Ruby can't wait to see all of the gorgeous flowers at the Flower Festival, but first Max sees Mr. Huffington making balloon animals, and he wants a "Balloon!" A series of accidents causes Max's balloons to burst, so they have to keep returning to Mr. Huffington. By the time they finally get to the flowers, the festival is closing, so Ruby thinks she won't see any gorgeous flowers, until Max gets Mr. H to make a beautiful flower out of a "Balloon!"

Ruby’s Penny Carnival-Ruby, Louise and Valerie are setting up a penny carnival in the backyard to earn money for a Bunny Scout field trip. Max keeps getting in the way with his monster mask, toys, bats and spiders and other things that are “Scary!” Ruby asks Max to get his icky toys out of the way, but when the carnival gets going, the biggest line-up is for the monster house that Max created, because everybunny loves things that are “Scary!”

Ruby’s Big Win-Max and Ruby are at the Fun Fair, and Ruby wants to win the basketball toss, because the prize is a goldfish. Max tries other games and he always manages to “Win!” different prizes. When Ruby finally wins the goldfish, Max has won everything she needs to give it a nice home.

Kaelyn really enjoyed this whole DVD and has asked to watch it several times since we received it. If you have a little one who loves Max & Ruby in your house, this would definitely make a great addition to your DVD collection.

    Hi There!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have to admit, I am looking forward to the first snow, but first I want to enjoy Fall! However, our neighboring province had snow a few days ago, and I'm quite far north, so we'll probably see it before long! Last year we had snow before Halloween!

    Have a great weekend! Now following!
