Donald shows a cuckoo clock he got for Daisy to Mickey. But Donald breaks it, and the cuckoo flies away. Mickey and Donald chase after it to get it back in time for Daisy’s surprise birthday party. When Mickey and Donald pursue the cuckoo to Wonderland, things are not as they seem. Not quite Alice’s Wonderland, this is a wonderland that young children will understand. There are puzzles to solve and help from Goofy Hatter, Tweedle Chip and Tweedle Dale, Queen Clarabelle, and Pete the Cat.
Disney has several holiday-themed Mickey Mouse Clubhouse movies and has now moved to literature. The bright colors and interactive approach will keep preschool children entertained while teaching them. Mickey faces the screen and talks directly to the children to explain.
Skills preschoolers learn are counting skills, shape and pattern recognition, problem solving and how to come to a resolution when there’s a conflict. Using Mousekedoer Mouseketools, Mickey solves problems while engaging the young view to help him.
The movie is all-new animation, with original songs and interactive bonus feature for the kids to enjoy. Two different levels of adventure provide alternative learning modes. Adventure Mode asks the viewer questions during the movie, which are answered interactively utilizing your TV remote. The movie freezes and a menu on the screen has you choose the answers. There are two different modes: for children ages two to three, or for ages four to six. As an extra there’s a 23-minute episode of the regular Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, called Goofy Goes Goofy.
Mickey’s Adventures in Wonderland is something for the young ones to enjoy and to enjoy learning while they watch.
