MMCH: Mickey's Great Outdoors DVD Review

After the reaction my son had the first time he saw Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, I have become a loyal fan! Therefore, any DVD that comes out is a must have!

If you're unfamiliar with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, it's one of the staples on Playhouse Disney and is geared towards toddlers and preschoolers. Both my kids love it. I think it's very educational. Kids learn letters, numbers, colors, vocabulary, but don't realize it because the show is so fun!

All-New, Never-Before-Seen Bonus Episode: 

 Mickey’s Fish Story - Daisy wants to find a fishy-friend for her goldfish Goldy – and 
we help her find other goldfish in the Jungle where we’re aided by the mysterious 
conga drummin’ Jungle-Pete!  Boom-boom-bap-boom!   
 Episodes From “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” TV Show: 

 Mickey’s Camp Out - Today Mickey and his friends are going to earn Clubhouse 
“Camp Out Badges” by completing two tasks - setting up camp and fishing for Gummy 
Fish.  Everyone’s planning to camp with a “Tent Buddy”, but Donald decides to camp 
by himself – and he soon learns that camping with friends is much more fun than 
camping by yourself. 

 Mickey and Minnie’s Jungle Safari - Minnie is determined to snap a photo of the rare 
Hula Hibiscus that only blooms once a year.  So the sensational gang go off on a jungle 
safari and explore new territory to find this legendary flower.  

 Daisy in the Sky - On Balloon Day, Daisy grabs a large batch of balloons and gets 
literally carried away along with Minnie and Pluto, who couldn’t hold her down. 
Mickey, Donald and Goofy kick into high gear to save their friends: they use a Giant 
Candy Cane (to rescue Pluto), a Party Horn (to warn animals out of the way), a Piggy 
Bank (to weigh down one side of an elevator so that Mickey can reach the top of the 
lighthouse), and a Toy Hammer (to fix the Ferris wheel).

 Daisy’s Grasshopper - Daisy has a new pet grasshopper named Wilbur, but the playful 
hoppin’ fella hops away – and we help all our Clubhouse friends hop after him and find 
him before the end of the day.  Boing-boing!

About Disney’s Exclusive Mickey Mote:
Disney’s Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode™ feature – an interactive “Watch & Play” feature on the DVD. All parents have to do is program the remote control – there’s an easy and quick set-up guide in each DVD- and select the Discovery Mode feature on the menu screen. Within minutes, kids will be easily responding to questions, throughout the story, about scenes they just watched by pressing one of four color-coded buttons on the device — a yellow star, green circle, orange triangle or blue square – to click in their responses. Discovery Mode features include two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.

The Mickey Mote can be used with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode feature. To date there are more than 11 titles that can be used with the remote control, just take a look at the back of the package to make sure."

Family Time Factor:  Mostly enjoyed by kids 8 and under, but more geared towards toddlers and preschoolers.  (Although my preschooler snubbed her nose at it.)

MOTR Grade: B+

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Great Outdoors is available May 24th on DVD!!!
