Just in time for Valentine's Day, Disney is releasing Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie's Bow-tique! Gracie was very excited when I opened the package and she discovered "mou-mouse" inside. We love Mickey Mouse and we love hairbows so I felt this would be a perfect fit for our house.
Synopsis: – For the first time ever, Minnie Mouse will star in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-tique when it comes to Disney DVD on February 9, 2010. This new release features four Minnie-themed stories including a never-before-seen episode and a fun Minnie magnet bow frame. Two episodes, ‘Minnie’s Pajama Party,’ and ‘Minnie’s Bee Story,’ include Disney’s Adventure Mode – an interactive game using the remote control with multiple play levels. It's the grand opening of Minnie's Bow-tique, a store jam-packed with every kind of bow and bowtie imaginable. The selections include: the "Glow-Bow", a bow that changes color with every mood; the "Grow-Bow", a bow that grows to tremendous size by just adding water; flying "Butterfly-Bows"; and a "Photo-Bow" that snaps instant pictures. Problems arise when Pete, embarrassed about buying a lady's bow for his favorite aunt, causes a few accidental mishaps in the new store.
However, super salesperson Minnie finds the perfect bow for Pete. The Bow-tique's grand opening is a success - and it all ends in a Big Bow Show with the Clubhouse gang modeling the latest fashions under the biggest bow of all, a colorful, sky-high Rain-Bow.
In a never-before-seen episode, Minnie’s Pajama Party Minnie and the girls set up a fun Pajama Party sleepover for the day – but it’s not as easy as it sounds, especially with the addition of Pete and Willie the Giant!
My Opinion: As Gracie and I snuggled together to watch this movie, I was watching for three things - music, language, and appeal to a toddler. It has great fun activities for a toddler and Gracie was counting along with Mickey and Minnie. She was answering their questions and engaging in some learning. (I do not let the TV "teach" my daughter but I do love when something I am working with her is enforced.) The music was generally cute except for one song. Even my husband who was in another room had me turn it. It was a disco song and I did not feel it was appropriate for a child to listen to. The words were fine but the music was not.
The language used in Mickey Mouse was appropriate for a young child and I did not catch any words that I did not want Gracie repeating.
We think it was a fun cartoon and other than the one song - loved it! I am sure it is already on Gracie's list to watch again and again. :-)
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie's Bowtique releases on Tuesday, February 9th. You can preorder it from Amazon.com to ensure delivery by Valentine's Day.
