A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Kids can learn about color-mixing, 2-D, 3-D, and symmetry, and different types of music and have the opportunity to experiment with each concept as they create their own content. They'll also explore and experiment with textures and different artistic tools in the extensive artist's palette. Kids will have so much fun, they'll seamlessly absorb the artistic concepts and use them in their own art.

Ease of Play

Activities are very easy to navigate with verbal and written instructions as well as flashing, on-screen icons to guide kids to the right buttons to press.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Links to other Disney Books apps are accessible behind a parental-control screen.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Color & Play is an animated 3-D coloring book and overall art experience for kids featuring Disney favorites Mickey and Minnie Mouse. This is classic Disney, with a hint of sexism in how Mickey and Minnie behave: Mickey explains what things are and how they work, and Minnie comments on appearances. Links outside the app are protected behind a parental-screen lock that requires entering a spelled-out numerical code, and no in-app purchases are available. Clear verbal instructions are easy for preschoolers to follow. With three rooms to color and explore, it will keep kids entertained for a long time.

What's it about?

Kids use creative ideas and an extensive variety of art materials to decorate Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse in MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE - COLOR & PLAY. They choose a room -- living room, kitchen, or garden -- from a wheel and then choose a coloring page for an object in the room. To decorate the object, kids select one or more of the many available art tools, including brushes, chalk, crayons, pencils, and markers as well as stickers, patterns, puzzle pieces, sponges, combs, balls, glitter (of course), and more. When they're finished, kids use a magic wand to animate the picture and move the object to the Clubhouse. Kids can explore the Clubhouse with Mickie or Minnie to find more fun tasks. In the kitchen, they can mix colors to decorate cupcakes. In the living room, they can listen to and record their own music, and in the garden, they can learn about symmetry using the symmetry tool in the artist's palette.

Is it any good?

Unlike many coloring-book apps that kids are quickly bored with, this will entertain them for hours. Each room has a dozen or more pictures to color. The array of tools in the artist's palette is extensive and fun to explore. Kids don't have to worry about staying perfectly in the lines because, once animated, the object is sort of cut out. The result is quite impressive. Kids can use the trash can button to erase and start over, but there's no option to erase all the items in a room at once, which would be nice. The extra activities in each room also are fun. Some parents might not appreciate the obvious differences in Mickey and Minnie's demeanors. Mickey comments on what the kids have done ("You did it!") or the purpose of objects in the room ("That's a great chair for reading") whereas Minnie comments on how she and the things in her garden look ("These butterflies have beautiful wings") and ("That's a beautiful shrub").
