My Thoughts:

You cannot walk into our house without seeing Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on the television, playing on the iPad, or countless dolls, books, and other memorabila laying around the house.  This Disney Junior is a favorite of both my daughters and was the recent 1st birthday theme for Arabella's birthday a couple of week's ago.  So, it was only fitting to download and review the new app available now iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, titled Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Wildlife Count Along

Savannah is beginning to learn her numbers and early math skills, so this educational app came in handy to help her with her counting from 1-10.  But, the best part about this app for her was seeing all the familiar faces of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse gang, and hearing their voices.  When she wasn't matching animals to their appropriate habitats, she was admiring the amazing animation of the app, and the Tap, Shake, and Tilt feature, which made her giggle.  Even though we have only had this game for a little over a day, I can see that is has become of her favorites, next to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally, which she plays on a daily basis.  And, with upcoming holiday car rides to visit family and friends, I am looking for great apps that will not only keep her entertained on the long drives, but also provide educational benefits. This new app fits the bill, and really is fun to play with.  I found myself getting into the matching game with Savannah this afternoon, as she showed me how to use the app. :-) Here I am getting a lesson from a two year old on how to use the app.

Do you have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan in your house and have an iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch to download apps to?  Then, why not download this app, which is only $1.99, to keep your little ones entertained?  Any Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan will go crazy for this app.  I know as Savannah still grins from ear to ear each time she taps on the app to play it. :-)
