Rosie’s Rules, is an animated series that follows the adventures of Rosie Fuentes, a 5-year-old Mexican American girl. When she has a question that she can’t let go of she looks for the answers, sharing the “rules” about life she learns along the way with viewers. She does all of this with her blended, multicultural family by her side, teaching kids how to navigate their world. In the game Rosie’s Rules: Slime Store, players get to help Rosie run her own slime shop, making their own slime, filling orders for customers, and shopping for supplies at Javi’s supply shop. Through play experiences in both English and Spanish, kids get to learn about supply and demand, creativity, and economics. Since Rosie’s Rules: Slime Store launched in September 2022 across all PBS KIDS platforms, it has been played over 11.2 million times, and remains in the top 5 played games across both the PBS KIDS Games app and PBSKIDS.org.
