Today Eva and I watched a few episodes from the soon to be released Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: I Heart Minnie DVD. This DVD has five Minnie-centric episodes including a never before seen episode called Minnie & Daisy’s Flower Shower. That was the first episode that we decided to watch. This episode focused on Minnie and Daisy preparing for a Flower Show. They had to make the clouds rain so that their flowers could grow. They also made the clouds into shapes. Don’t try to understand why the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is doing the things they do but focus on what skills they reinforce for children like counting, color and shape recognition and more skills like that. Don’t look to it for problem solving skills though because there is no way Toodles is gonna show up with the right mousekatool in the real world. But I do think that sequencing, shape recognition, counting and those skills are done right for the kids.
The DVD that I got to review contained a digital copy. You know I love digital copies because I can load them onto the iPad and Eva can enjoy the show on her own anytime. Not that we let her have too much TV but the option is there, especially for long car rides and things like that. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is a show that we enjoy together and this is a great DVD for her collection.
The DVD also has a reversible cover that you can take out and it has games and activities for your child plus the option for them to color their own version of the DVD cover.
I have a couple of clips from the DVD as well as the official Press release below. The DVD comes out this Tuesday February 7, 2012.
