The Mother Company Mamas wanted to find a hero in the media who could help us teach all the social and emotional lessons we were trying to teach our own children. Our dreams were answered by Ruby (Kelsey Collins), who combines a whimsical Mary Poppins with a touch of Amélie and a bit of the grounded Mister Rogers as well. Her voice is soothing and she communicates with children without condescension. She leads them in creative art projects, inspires fun through song and dance, and encourages kids to express themselves by supporting their self-exploration and communication skills. We are frequently thanked by parents for providing a new kind of hero for their children (Ruby gets quite a bit of fan mail from both kids and parents.) We feel so lucky to have her at the center of all our “Ruby’s Studio” shows and events.
To see the lovely Ruby in action, check out our “Feelings Show” trailer.
