Mickey Mote Coming For The Holidays

THERE’S A WHOLE NEW WAY FOR KIDS TO WATCH AND PLAY!

THE ALL-NEW MICKEY MOTE, A CHILD-SIZED REMOTE CONTROL, PROVIDES HOURS OF FUN WITH AN ENHANCED, INTERACTIVE VIEWING EXPERIENCE


The New “Mickey Mote” Will Debut with the Release of Disney’s New Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Number Roundup and Handy Manny: Big Construction Job DVDs on November 16th

BURBANK, Calif., October 12, 2010 – This coming holiday, parents and their preschoolers will discover a whole new way to watch and play their favorite Disney preschool DVDs, with the all-new “Mickey Mote”. This one-of-a-kind, kid’s remote control, from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, will debut this November 16th packed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Number Roundup and Handy Manny: Big Construction Job.  The new “Mickey Mote” is a child-friendly handheld remote control, shaped like Mickey ears, that will take children’s viewing experience to a whole new level by providing an engaging interaction with their favorite Disney characters.  With multiple levels of play, the new Mickey Mote will provide hours of fun, engaging and challenging adventures for kids age 2-5.   The Mickey Mote is a value for moms and fun for kids!

How It Works:

The Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes Discovery Mode™, 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.

Why Parents Will Love It:
Once families have purchased a Disney Preschool DVD that comes packaged with the Mickey Mote, they can continue to build their Disney Preschool libraries as the Mickey Mote works in compatibility with any Discovery Mode enhanced DVD. For example, kids can immediately use the remote with any of the following titles:

  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Road Rally
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Adventures in Wonderland
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Choo Choo
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-Tique
  • Handy Manny: Manny’s Motorcycle Adventure
  • Handy Manny: Manny’s Big Race
  • Little Einsteins: Fire Truck Blast Off
  • My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Super Duper Super Sleuths
  • My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Bedtime With Pooh

Note:  Discovery Mode can also be played using any DVD remote control.
Look for more Discovery Mode DVDs on future Disney Preschool franchise releases such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Handy Manny!

Available beginning on November 16, 2010, consumers can purchase either Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Number Roundup and/or Handy Manny: Big Construction Job DVDs  – which will each come specially packaged with the new Mickey Mote – for the suggested retail price of $29.99 (US)/$35.99 Canada.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-Tique DVD

Releasing on 2/9/2010 on DVD as part of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Series comes Minnie Mouse in Minnie’s Bow-tique.  We love any Disney cartoon, and this was everything that we have come to expect from Disney.  If you have watched any Disney cartoon, then you know that laughs are going to be heard while watching this.  We loved watching this, and I am sure we will watch it many times in the future. As normal with almost any Disney movie you will find Disney Movie Rewards enclosed in the packaging.  You can use those rewards to get things from the offerings at Disney Movie Rewards.

MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE: MINNIE’S BOW-TIQUE

Includes Four Minnie-Themed Adventures Plus A Never-Before-Seen* Episode

and a Delightful Minnie Magnet Bow Frame

BURBANK, Calif., November 6, 2009 – 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!
