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 kids' remote control from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment debuted today, November 16th. It comes 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's ears. It will take children's viewing experiences 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 aged 2 to 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(tm), 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 responding to questions 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. Discovery Mode includes two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.
Shelly, mom of one, says:
"The Mickey Mote
is a great way to give your child an interactive experience as they watch television. It also lets your child feel independent and autonomous. My daughter loves being able to have her own remote control that only Hailey uses while watching her favorite characters; she likes to answer on her own. The Mickey Mote
kept her very engaged and entertained! What a great way to let children engage with their beloved Disney characters!"
