A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn puzzle-solving and matching skills with 26 jigsaw puzzles that offer rewarding videos upon completion.  Kids can also build spatial skills, patience, and an understanding of part-whole relationships as they work to complete each puzzle. Many kids will likely find this an encouraging first puzzle experience with just the right amount of challenge. Disney Junior Minnie Mouseke -- Puzzles may be more for entertainment than education, but the skill-level options and replay factor make it a fun learning activity.

Ease of Play

Very easy to play, with simple choices: Pick a puzzle and one of three difficulty levels. That's it.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

The Disney Junior and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse brands are mildly promoted through the recognizable characters on the puzzles and in the videos, like Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and the other characters from the channel. There's a small tab with a "D" Disney logo at the bottom of the main screen, that if swiped, moves users to the Disney mobile site.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disney Junior Minnie Mouskie -- Puzzles provides jigsaw puzzles for little kids that transform into short, happy videos when completed. There aren't too many choices here, so nothing gets complicated enough to distract young kids from completing any of the 26 easy puzzles and watching brief Disney videos as rewards. Kids simply choose a puzzle and a difficulty level. Especially for Minnie Mouse fans who love bows, pink, and Disney-style sweetness, this jigsaw puzzle app will be a great fit.

What's it about?

Kids choose a puzzle from 26 images and then choose one of three difficulty levels, none of which are too difficult. Once the chosen puzzle picture scatters its pieces, a lighter image appears in the middle of the screen, and the pieces sit around the sides of the screen. Kids simply drag and drop each piece into the matching space to complete the puzzle. If they put a piece in the wrong spot, it automatically moves back to the side of the screen. Once the puzzle's complete, the image animates.

Is it any good?

There's no bad news on DISNEY JUNIOR MINNIE MOUSEKE -- PUZZLES, just sweet fun for little ones. The jigsaw puzzles are easy because the image remains in the background, so not only can kids match the shapes but also the objects within that shape. With three levels of difficulty, kids can do the same puzzle three times with more pieces each time. The videos are very short, but kids will enjoy them as a reward and recognize the characters and scenes from the Disney show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • As your kids are choosing which puzzle to complete, ask them what they see the characters doing in the image and why they're choosing that one.

  • Point out the shapes of some of the puzzle pieces so your kids can see not only the images that match but also the different shapes within each piece.
