Disclosure: I was sent a copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views shared are mine and mine alone.


"Walt Disney Records releases Minnie’s Favorites, the new collection from Disney Junior’s hit TV series “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.”  The soundtrack features three new songs performed by Minnie plus beloved classics from the series such as “I’m A Friend, You’re A Friend,” “Mickey’s Countdown,” “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and “Hot Dog” performed by the Grammy Award®-winning duo They Might Be Giants.  Minnie’s Favorites is now available for purchase in stores and online.

“Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” introduces preschoolers to the characters their parents and grandparents before them knew and loved, like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto, as the characters entertain and educate kids with a math-based curriculum. Each episode of “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” begins in the clubhouse and introduces children to the story and some type of problem that they must help the characters solve. From there, the story could take kids anywhere – around the clubhouse, into space, to a fairytale setting, or some other far away place. The problem and story are designed to introduce kids to problem solving and mathematical skills. Ending each episode, the characters dance along to the congratulatory song “Hot Dog!”

My Thoughts:
What child is not a fan of Mickey Mouse?  And, if you have little ones at home who watch Disney Junior, then, you are probably tuning into to watch the ever popular animated series, "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse."  We can't miss any episode!  If by chance we do, which is not often, then the girls have the Disney Junior app on Daddy's iPad, which lets them see missed episodes. :-)

Because Mickey and his friends, my daughters can't get enough of the catchy music of this show, especially the theme song, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which kicks off each show, and the Hot Dog song played at the end of each episode.  Coincidentally, these were the first two songs Savannah learned to sing word for word, when she started talking.  

We have not taken the girls to Disneyland yet, but know that when we do, they will fall in love with this magical place, as they get to meet their favorite characters.  But, in the meantime, they will continue to enjoy tuning in daily to Disney Junior to catch the latest episode of "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" and will continue to have living room dance parties to this fun CD, filled with popular songs from this series.  We have recently brought it in the car for summer day trips, and by the end of the CD the first time we listened to it, my husband had learned all the words and was ready to sing along for the car ride home -- which usually never happens!


Thanks to the folks at Walt Disney Records, three (3) lucky readers will have a chance to win a copy of "Minnie's Favorite" to share with their Minnie Mouse or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan!  To enter, please complete the entries on the  Rafflecopter form below.  Good luck!
