It is no surprise or secret. My entire family drank the Disney kool-aid long-ago. There is not much we haven’t done, seen or bought that reflects our loyalty to the Disney brand and business. Same goes for all Disney Channels and movies as well. Around here we have been big, huge fans of Disney Junior’s Emmy®-nominated, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, since it hit our flat screen tube in 2006. Being a parent and fan myself, I have watched and enjoyed the evolution of the series from when my older kids would be glued to the screen for the next 30-minutes of TV time. Now that my boys are two and totally into Mickey Mouse, whom they lovingly call, “Hot Dog”, I am enjoying the series as much as they are. Watching the different episodes with them has convinced me they are learning some basic info while being entertained at the same time. I love it when Mickey asks a question and the boys quickly answer back. From Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, my twins learned and love to yell out the names of all the farm animals, count to ten, and learn basic shapes. Not that I would replace TV shows with parenting, but it is good to know the shows the boys do enjoy watching are also teaching them something at the same time.
The new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD, “The Quest for Crystal Mickey,” is no exception. The whole gang is together in search for the Crystal Mickey, overcoming obstacles and challenges along the way. Not to mention a new catchy tune entitled, “Kansas City Mickey,” that you will be singing along to in no time. (Believe me, you will- it runs through my head all day!) Over 120-minutes of fun filled adventure with Mickey and his gang, and also includes 4 additional episodes related to The Quest for the Crystal Mickey:
1 – Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Quest for the Crystal Mickey
2 – Donald of the Desert
3 – Donald the Genie
4 – Goofy’s Coconutty Monkey
5 – Goofy’s Giant Adventure
Here is a brief synopsis of the show:
Join Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and all their pals in the newest Clubhouse crusade. When the legendary Crystal Mickey goes missing, Mickey and friends go on an adventure to save the Clubhouse from losing its magic. Grab your hat, buckle your seatbelt, and get ready to embark on a thrilling adventure in “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: The Quest for the Crystal Mickey!”
There’s no time to lose after greedy Plunderin’ Pete snatches the legendary Crystal Mickey statue from the Clubhouse. Without this sparkly statue’s magic, the Clubhouse will disappear forever! Can the world’s most extraordinary hero “Kansas City Mickey,” get the magical statue back in time? Only with help from young viewers at home…and the right Mouseketools can Mickey journey across the Sandy Desert, brave the Rushing River and make his way through the Hidden Jungle. But watch out for Pete’s trickiest traps!
When I was asked to review the DVD, which was released in stores on May 21st, I was just as excited as my boys were. And, when it came in the mail, one of the twins was so excited to see it, he literally ripped it open with his teeth (while I wasn’t looking of course)! Even more exciting…I get to give-away a brand new copy of the newly released DVD, including an Adventure Activity Map with Stickers. I promise, it won’t be the same one my son bit into.
Not like you need any more convincing to want to win this great little DVD- summer time entertainment at home and traveling- but check out this clip with Kansas City Mickey and that blundering Pete:
