New Kids Remote Control Playhouse Disney Mickey Mote & DVD Sets

My children Zoe and Miles love to watch Playhouse Disney. We don’t have cable so our only opportunity to watch it is by DVD, or the occasional visit to grandma’s house. They are also very familiar with technology and can operate any remote in the house. However, they can recognize when something is special or meant for them. Disney created the New Mickey Mote and sent us one to review along with two compatible movies. You’ll be surprised to find that we did actually have a little trouble setting up the remote. The reason for that is because we couldn’t find an actual remote with an IR signal to the DVD player directly. Why, because we have been using a universal remote for all of our devices for over a year and we’ve moved within that time. We tired to use the universal remote to program the Mickey Mote but it failed. So while my husband is looking for the right kind of remote Zoe, Miles and I went ahead and watched the DVDs, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Numbers & Rounds, and Handy Manny Big Construction Job Review.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Numbers & Rounds Review:

clip_image001[4] Zoe and Miles both enjoyed watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Numbers & Rounds, I even heard both of them counting. If I remember correctly it was watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse where Miles first learned how to count.

How To Set Up Your Mickey Mote

Quick Set Up Guide_Mickey Mote

First you need to put a battery in the remote, it does not come with one so you’ll need to find some AAA batteries. Then  you will need to turn on the remote by pressing and holding down any two buttons until the green light between the ears comes on. Then you need to place the Mickey Mote flat on a surface with a DVD remote control facing it also on the flat surface, about three inches apart. Press the UP button on the DVD remote 4 times slowly. After each of your first 3 presses the green light on the MICKEY MOTE will go off – then come back on. Then after the fourth press, the green light will flash quickly, and then turn off and come back on. Then repeat the steps for each of the other buttons with the corresponding action from the DVD remote control. See photo for a guide.

clip_image001How The Mickey Mote Works:

On November 16th Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release the Mickey Mote! The Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes Discovery Mode(tm), the interactive "Watch & Play" feature on the DVD!  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 (such as "What color is Goofy’s hat?") 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.
