Sophia has loved Disney Junior's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse since she was little bitty. Moreaya has been the same way. Honestly, I think there's just something about the "Hot Dog" song that just gets you!
About a month ago the extended episode "Quest for the Crystal Mickey" aired on Disney Junior and Sophia loved it. She kept seeing the commercials before it came on and when it finally did air, she didn't move through the whole thing. She loves "adventure" role play right now and often tells her Dad and I it's time "to go on adventures!" She "sees" footprints on the ground that need to be followed, she's always talking of being a Detective, and loves to solve a good mystery – seriously.
Somehow we forgot to DVR it, like we do most of time and she was a bit bummed because she only got to see it once. Luckily, Disney Junior is releasing the episode, along with 4 others on DVD!
When our copy arrived, I think I was more excited than Sophia could ever be. I just knew her little face would light up as soon as she saw the movie!
So, I told her that I had a surprise for her…
This gal LOVES surprises. Well, she's like her Daddy and keeps asking "What is it, Mom? What do you have?"
She was pretty excited too! She loved all the episodes on the DVD including:
- Donald of the Desert
- Donald the Genie
- Goofy’s Coconutty Monkey
- Goofy’s Giant Adventure
But Quest for the Crystal Mickey is definitely still her favorite. There is tons of adventure throughout the episode and all headed by "Kansas City Mickey". The girls particularly love the songs in this episode, as well as all of Pete's shenanigans!
As a Mom, I adore the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse series because it has tons of education involved – Mickey and the gang are constantly counting, naming colors, and showing positive social interactions that kids really do benefit from seeing.
If your child is a Mickey Mouse fan, this is definitely one to add to their DVD collection!
With over 2 hours of shows and an Adventure Activity Map and Stickers, the suggested retail price for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Quest for the Crystal Mickey is $19.99 and it will be officially released on Tuesday, May 21st!
