What does my child get with his/her Commander membership?
As a Smart Money Commander, your little Commander will get full access to:
- Smart Money Commanders, with 6 engaging money knowledge modules on saving, spending and sharing (or giving). Each module contains an engaging and informative video with 2 to 5 puppets, coloring pages and an activity or learning sheet that they can work on with you. At the end of the course, your little Commander will earn their very own Money Commander Badge!
- Ongoing access to short videos (1 new video every 2 weeks)
- New coloring pages added monthly (2 or more per month)
- Activities and games in the Commander Central pod (monthly)
- Still in development: Happy Lifeplan, Sunday School Primers, and possibly sing-a-long songs
Are there specific levels of membership?
There are two levels of membership: Free and Commander.
Free membership includes getting access to certain coloring pages as well as being able to receive e-mails from Ruby, Sparky, Candi, Bosco or one of the nearly 70 other Troupe members.
Commander membership allows access to all videos, games and activities as well as more frequent access to blogs and e-mails from Ruby and the entire gang…
What is the Puppet Blog?
The Puppet Blog is a very fun and entertaining element which is available to the Commanders as part of their memberhip.
Ruby, Sparky, Candi and Bosco just LOVE chatting with the kids and will be taking questions and answering them in a blog or e-mail at least twice a month…sometimes more (Ruby and Sparky get real excited and want to share a lot!)
My child LOVES the videos. Can I download them for viewing when I do not have internet access?
The videos are available for streaming from our site, which is secured. Color pages, activity sheets and blog questions are downloadable at any time. You can download the activity sheets and color pages as many times as you like!
We also have available a DVD with over 60 minutes of short skits on a variety of topics you and your child will enjoy that cover things like kindness, patience, helping, respect, patience and more… there’s also some cool “tall kids” tips too!
I have 3 children. Do they each need their own Commander memberhip?
Our desire is for all children to experience the magic of Ruby’s Troupe, be affordable and fair. A Commander membership can be purchased for a single child or for a family living in the same household, but each membership will only have one login.
How can I purchase Ruby's Troupe Commander Memberships as a gift?
Buying “Ruby’s Troupe Commander” is super simple and what a wonderful gift it is! Gift options are available at our secure checkout. We offer monthly, 6 month or annual gift memberships, which you can see here. [add link to sales page]
