Mickey's Big Splash DVD Review

My daughter LOVES Disney Princess movies and pretty much all things Disney, but is not very familiar with Mickey Mouse. So, I was unsure what to expect from this DVD. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is a very popular series on Playhouse Disney. This dvd features four beach themed episodes and a bonus feature.

I was very impressed, because these shows actually promote learning and have little tasks throughout them to help kids develop such skills as counting, alphabet, word play, etc. And the best part was that my daughter LOVED it! She took to it immediately and was thrilled. And as I mentioned, I was happy to see that it was not pure silliness, but had that added learning bonus!

It's also great that my kids can enjoy characters that were around when I was growing up, like Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy! I definitely think this will become a staple in my kids' viewing rotation!

Family Time Factor: According to Disney, this is their number one show for kids ages 2-5. I can see why. It has bright colors and is fun to interact with. I think that seven would probably be when they are getting too old to really enjoy it. It is something that is easy for me to watch or listen to in the background, but not something that an adult would find fun to watch.

MOTR Grade: A-

Mickey's Big Splash will be available on DVD and starting May 5. Check out a video clip of the Donald's Ducks episode.
