My son loves this toy! He got it for christmas when he was one and has been a great hit ever since. I do however think that mickey is very overpriced. We purchased this toy for only £18.99 in b&m bargains.
This toy has two different settings, stories and songs, controlled by an easy switch which moves sideways, easy for toddlers to use. The switch has a picture of a book for stories and a picture of a music note for songs, easy for toddler to identify. The volume is controlled by a twisting knob, also easy for a toddler to use by themselves.
There are 8 different songs, and 8 different stories. These are all operated by different buttons. Each button has the face of a character to represent the theme.
The on/off button is situated on the back of mickeys shoe and also includes a 'try me' option.
Mickey's arm seem to have wire on the inside and can change position. The material he is made of is soft, and easy to wipe clean. The plastic is strong and robust and has survived many throws and falls.
Overall mickey looks exactly how he should and is very bright and colourful, appealing to small children and babies. Would highly recommend this toy as it provides hours of entertainment and fun.
I'll always remember my sons face when he opened this on Christmas morning when he had just turned two; he was thrilled to bits. When we got him out and he saw him in action it pretty much made his christmas.
Mickey has two different modes; story mode and song mode. My son prefers song mode. He has about ten songs and ten stories to tell; my little boy loves each and every one of them to the point that I am sick of hearing them, haha! Mickey dances while he is singing and moves while he is story telling. He has bendable arms so you can pose him however you like. He is engaging and sweet; my little boy will watch him for hours.
The only problem with Mickey is that he is quite heavy and if your child, like mine, is insistant on picking him up to hug him, accidents can ensue with tripping up and dropping him, etc. The only other negative I would suggest would be the price; we paid around £50 for ours but lately I have seen them for £30 in bargain stores; I would definitely say he was worth £30.
Will delight those little Mickey fans everywhere, guaranteed!
With the original voice of Mickey Mouse, he sings and dances to 8 different songs about his friends in the Mickey Mouse Club House and also explains 8 different adventures. Mickey talks, sings and dances to the rhythm of the music. Very easy to activate by just pressing any one of the 8 different buttons to choose the story or song you want to hear.
