I received a copy of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: The Quest for Crystal Mickey to review. A friend of mine came to the house with her daughter, Libby, and I thought it would be fun for her to watch and give me her thoughts as to the video. So we sat down and watched it. Libby (age 6) and Steven (age 3) were mesmerized by it. I think partly because neither one of them watch much television!
My friend and I by the end were tired of the high pitched character voices. However, it is manageable in short stints.
Neither child really interacted with the video when questions were asked or calling for "Toodles."
My thought was that this was a kid, cartoon Mickey version of Indian Jones!
When we were done watching the video I asked Libby what she thought. She said, "He's not real." I then asked her if she liked it. And she shook her head yes. Steven's favorite part is the end of each episode when they do the "hot dog dance." There are times when he will just start dancing and we always know it is the "hot dog dance."
I received a copy of this video for an honest review. My opinion is my own and has in no way been influenced.
