Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Jingle Bell Fun has some classic Christmas songs, and with half sung by Mickey Mouse and friends, it's probably most entertaining for little kids under five. The renditions that are sung by actual people (who aren't acting like characters) make the album bearable for parents to listen to in between Goofy and Minnie's holiday singing.

What's the story?

With their Batman and Disney Princess Halloween costumes barely put away, little kids can jump right into the Christmas season with Disney's JINGLE BELL FUN. The ten-track album has some fun, classic yuletide favorites like "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" sung by Mickey Mouse and his friends Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, and Daisy.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Little Mickey Mouse fans will love singing along to some of their favorite Christmas songs on Jingle Bell Fun. From the traditional "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" to Goofy's "Toyland," preschoolers can get in the spirit of the holidays with their Disney friends. Parents will also appreciate the solid renditions of "O Holy Night" and "Wonderful Christmas Time," which are sung by Randy Crenshaw (who does voiceovers for Phineas & Ferb and Family Guy among others) and Hailey Markman.
