“Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade” with Mickey Mote Review
On February 8th, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade on DVD with a Mickey Mote. Parents and their preschoolers are invited to join in the ultimate masquerade party with Minnie, Mickey and pals in a fun-filled collection of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse latest episodes that celebrate themes of friendship, teamwork, sharing and problem solving. You can purchase the DVD with Mickey Mote online and in stores, retailing for $29.99.
This latest release features four playful Minnie-themed adventures previously seen on the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse TV show, a never-before-seen episode, and a free paper mask with festive embellishments that kids can personalize. And as a special option for consumers, Disney has packaged a version of the DVD to include the exclusive Mickey Mote – a child-friendly handheld remote control, shaped like Mickey ears, that takes children’s viewing experience to a whole new level of play. The DVD + Mickey Mote Play Set is the ultimate value for moms and equally fun and engaging for kids! The Mickey Mote uses infrared technology and may not be compatible with all devices.
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade starring Disney’s Fab Five — Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Goofy and Daisy — takes viewers on an all new adventure as they dress-up in their favorite costumes for Minnie’s Masquerade Ball. In this episode, Minnie needs some help getting everything ready for her party including making royal crowns for their costumes, searching for Sir Goofalot’s lost shoe, stringing up paper lanterns and much, much more. At the ball, Professor Von Drake hosts the great Clubhouse Costume Show and gives out prize ribbons to all the friends who have dressed up in some funny and fancy costumes. All it takes is a heaping helping of imagination…and the right Mouseketools.
ABOUT DISNEY’S EXCLUSIVE MICKEY MOTE:
Disney’s Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode feature – an 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 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 two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.
The Mickey Mote can be used with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes the Discovery Mode feature. To date there are more than 11 titles that can be used with the remote control, just take a look at the back of the package to make sure.

My 4 year old was so happy to see Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Masquerade. She loves the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes. Initially I had trouble programming the Mickey Mote, but I always have trouble programming things, so that was nothing new. My daughter loved the Mickey Mote because it gave her a chance to play along with the games. It came with an awesome Masquerade mask – every little girl’s dream! She loves that the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse keeps her guessing and on her toes, looking forward to what comes up next. She also loves the theme song and the hot dog dance. She dances and sings along with both songs. She loves Daisy because she wears purple and her favorite color is purple.
