{Mickey Mote + Mickey’s Number Roundup and Handy Manny: Big Construction Job.

With two younger ones home during the day, we watch quite a few kids shows on TV.  My kids have a few favorites in including Handy Manny and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I love how fun both shows are, and I love the fact that they enjoy them. They love all the talking tools on Handy Manny and have such a blast watching it and learning how all the tools work. Mickey Mouse has always been a favorite for all 3 of my kids. Now there is a whole new way to watch and play my kids favorite Disney preschool DVDs.

The new Mickey Mote provides exciting interaction with their favorite Disney characters. Shaped like Mickey ears, its not only fun but a great way to get your kids thinking and engaging with their favorite shows. They are easily responding to questions throughout the show, about some of the things they just watched. I love that the Mickey Mote keeps them entertained and that it is great for both my 4 and 3 year old as it has 2 levels of play. Mickey Mote works with other Discovery Mode enhanced DVDS. Programing was easy as pie. Another great feature that I have not tried yet is that it can also be played using any DVD remote control :)

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.

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.
