Groovy Ruby (brought to life by the effervescent Ruby Teys) is the cheery voice you'll hear guiding you through mornings on Kinderling Kids Radio. You can hear her on Gather Round with Groovy Ruby from 9am to 12pm weekdays.
Who is Groovy Ruby?
Groovy Ruby is an intergalactic being, brought to earth with one single mission: to get kids (and their grown-ups) to dance, sing, wiggle and giggle as she sends you on a series of magical, silly adventures.
Both her radio show and live performances are designed to get kids using their whole body – including their brains!
- She plays HEAPS of fun tunes that you can’t help but groove to.
- She has some reeeeeeally big dance moves.
- She’s full of brain-bursting facts, which she brews up in her big, bubbling Fun Fact Pot.
- She loves to tell crack-up jokes – which you’ll hear on air throughout the week, particularly during her “Friday Funnies” segment.
Consider her your supersonic boogie guide, here to help bring out every kid’s curiosity … and all their best dance moves!
Where did she come from?
Born on Planet Groove, Ruby hitched a ride through space on a shooting star, cart wheeled into earth’s atmosphere and landed in sunny Australia, right on the Kinderling HQ doorstep!
Here she magically hatched from a disco ball, emerging in her planet’s favourite outfit: a colourful super suit, a hairdo full of bright pom poms and a face covered in glistening glitter.
She’s colourful, energetic, and ready to fill your mornings with lots of fun!
