Minnie’s Masquerade showed up last week for us to review from Disney’s Home Entertainment PR Company. Zoe opened up and was so excited to get another movie, and her friend was over at the same time. Well, I wasn’t expecting it to come with another really cool Mickey Mote, so I handed it right over to her best friend.
You should have seen the look of horror on my daughter’s face and the look of excitement on her friends face.
So I told Zoe, you already have a Mickey Mote and we can go over to Emily’s house to watch Minnie’s Masquerade the next time it rains.
It took 2 days for the rain to return, every day Zoe would say, can we go over to Emily’s house?
But it’s raining outside.
No, it’s cloudy and cold but there is no rain so we have to play outside!
Ummm. but it’s cold.
Put your coat on!
So finally we were able to go over and watch it. Zoe had a great time answering all of the questions during the game mode of the DVD. Some of the questions are just like, pick which color you like, or which type of cookie you want to take along. Then other questions you can actually get wrong which help to teach a lesson of some kind or another.
The game mode is the mode in which you watch the DVD where the remote actually interacts with the episode. The episode will pause and then a question will pop up. The kids have to choose one of the shapes and corresponding color to answer the question. Then the episode will resume with your choice!
Miles sat and watched the entire thing. Zoe played with the remote for a while during the episodes, but I think she only watched the first one! As this is a Masquerade party, the kids are encouraged to get up and dance with Mickey and Minnie, Also, there is a mask included in the box.
Minnie’s Masquerade Ball Synopsis:
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.
Now that I have really seen the remote in action I can say it’s pretty cool that the kids can interact with their favorite show. Both Zoe and Miles love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and if we had cable I think we would watch it all the time. We received a copy of this DVD for review purposes.
