FISHER PRICE DANCE ‘N’ SHOUT MICKEY MOUSE REVIEW
Once unboxed, we took a look at Mickey. To turn Mickey on, there is a switch under the shoe to power him, and a button on top of the shoe for little ones to activate him, which is easy to locate and depress for little fingers. This is brilliant because on so many toys, the controls are hidden under clothes making them difficult to operate if you’re small.
There are four little games that Mickey performs – Mickey sings Twist and Shout, then Mickey Says, sings one verse of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and then plays Mickey Freeze to the Twist and Shout song again. Each one lasts around a minute and the toy then needs to be reactivated by pressing his shoe to start the next game.
Unlike some Mickey toys, Dance ‘n’ Shout Mickey actually looks AND sounds like Mickey. He even has the right number of fingers. My mouseketeers loved him initially, as they do everything that has the Big Cheese on, but sadly they are rather scared to turn him on now…except for Hero. He adores him.
As a parent, I’ve a few reservations about whether I would buy this particular Mickey, but there are aspects that I love about him also.
Honestly, at £39.99 this isn’t a toy I personally would buy, despite my complete adoration of Mickey and Disney – mainly because Mickey is pretty inaudible when moving. The movements are fast and jerky, which scared my boys [but not Baby Hero, who loved him so much he wanted to eat him], but they are both under five and very changeable in their attitudes towards toys.
Dance ‘n’ Shout Mickey is on sale at £24 in places currently though – and at that price, he would have found his way into our trolley easily if they liked him.
That is super cute. Who doesn't love Mickey Mouse? I Have a niece that would one of those.
I can see how a little one would be afraid of any toy that moved too fast and jerky, hopefully it won't scare them away from everyone's favorite mouse 😀
That is adorable! My sons loved toys that moved like this when they were babies.
That's pretty cool. My nephew had a toy like this when he was a baby, and he'd laugh at that thing for hours.
Awh, Hero looks like he's really loving his Mickey Mouse toy. What shame it's not as cuddly as it could be, little one love cuddling their toys. Loving your honest review of this.
I find that most toys that are mechanical do that un cuddly thing. I was hoping the hot dog song would have been on it only. My kids love that song, they can almost sing all the words. The baby looks excited though.
Omg this toy sounds awesome!!! My princes would of loves something like this. My aunt is prwggo so this would make a great gift for her little one!
We had the dancing Mickey with the guitar!! He lasted through my kids and is now onto a neighbors house. They make great toys for the kids!
Very cute toy.. I'll pass it to my sister she needs some of this stuff.
My kids would have loved this toy when they were younger. I love your review and how honest you are. It is great to see someone point our the good and the bad.
I guess all that shouting and dancing git to the little ones. I wonder what feature of the toy bothered them.
Oh my, that top pictures is just adorable. Hero's smile is just perfect
Shame he couldn't have been heard easily that for me would be the point of him! .. glad Hero like him though even if it was for eating lol
Great review. My youngest is currently really into Mickey so he would love him although it is a shame he can't be heard so well.
How cute – my daughter would have loved to play with this when she was younger! 🙂
Aww huni, your pictures are beautiful. They look like they should be used in the official marketing for the product xx
Mickey is a firm favourite in our house!
Kids love the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Song! I love the photo of your baby and Mickey!
