The other day I received a brand new DVD for Eva and I to review. This was a Disney DVD called Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade. I was pretty excited to receive this because Eva is such a huge fan of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I was also excited because the DVD is one of the ones that comes with a Mickey Mote and add a layer of interactivity for the Eva.
The setup of the Mickey Mote was easy but it only worked on one of our DVD players. As luck would have it the only DVD player that works with the Mickey Mote is the one in the bedroom so Eva got to hang out in the big bed and enjoy playing with the Mickey Mote and watching the show. She took right to the Mickey Mote and I set it at the second level. She can handle being able to identify four colors and shapes so we jumped right in to playing. For some reason Level Two played Secret Spy Daisy and not the new episode Minne’s Maquerade. I would have liked to have been able to choose the show to watch or at least know which episodes were level 1 and level 2.
Also included in the package was a masquerade mask. The mask was reversible and on one side I Eva could color her own mask. Also included was a DVD cover that Eva could color too. She has already colored in her mask.
I had to leave the room while Eva was watching the show and when I returned she was all excited to tell me that she had answered another question using the Mickey Mote. She was very proud of herself for being able to answer the questions and play by herself. This is a great way for kids to get into their shows as a participant rather than just an observer. This DVD comes out on February 8. Here is the official press release with more information.
COME JOIN MINNIE, MICKEY AND PALS IN AN ADVENTURE THAT CELEBRATES THEMES OF FRIENDSHIP, TEAMWORK, SHARING, PROBLEM SOLVING AND DRESSING-UP
Just In Time For Valentine’s Day, Disney’s New Preschool DVD Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade
Debuts February 8th, 2011
BURBANK, Calif., January 10, 2011 – Parents and their preschoolers are invited to join in the ultimate masquerade party with Minnie, Mickey and pals in a fun-filled collection of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse latest episodes that celebrate themes of friendship, teamwork, sharing and problem solving. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade is the perfect gift to dress-up your Valentine’s Day, available on Disney DVD February 8 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.
This latest release features four playful Minnie-themed adventures previously seen on the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse TV show, a never-before-seen episode, and a free paper mask with festive embellishments that kids can personalize. And as a special option for consumers, Disney has packaged a version of the DVD to include the exclusive Mickey Mote – a child-friendly handheld remote control, shaped like Mickey ears, that takes children’s viewing experience to a whole new level of play. The DVD + Mickey Mote Play Set is the ultimate value for moms and equally fun and engaging for kids! The Mickey Mote uses infrared wireless technology and may not be compatible with all devices.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade starring Disney’s Fab Five — Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Daisy – takes viewers on an all new adventure as they dress-up in their favorite costumes for Minnie’s Masquerade Ball. In this episode, Minnie needs some help getting everything ready for her party including making royal crowns for their costumes, searching for Sir Goofalot’s lost shoe, stringing up paper lanterns and much, much more. At the ball, Professor Von Drake hosts the great Clubhouse Costume Show and gives out prize ribbons to all the friends who have dressed up in some funny and fancy costumes. All it takes is a heaping helping of imagination…and the right Mouseketools.
About Disney’s Exclusive Mickey Mote:

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.
