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

Educational Value

Kids can learn a variety of skills from counting and shapes to problem solving and memory. In each pit stop of the race, kids have to help Mickey and his friends solve a problem. They have to choose the right tool for the job, and then get through the obstacle by finding a specific shape or specific number of objects. Mickey provides great feedback to help kids out and to reinforce the concepts. Finally, a nice feature at the end is that Mickey goes back and reviews everything, which can help comprehension skills. Although the content may be limited as it's just one appisode, this is a merging of the best from the TV and app worlds.

Ease of Play

The show is super easy to navigate. Mickey is there to provide instruction whenever necessary. The app gives prompts when there is no response.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally appisode is the first "appisode" based on the TV series of the same name. By adding some thoughtful interactive experiences, Disney has turned a traditional TV episode into an engaging and active experience. Kids watch the appisode on the device just like they would on a TV, but sprinkled throughout the show are interactive experiences where kids get to take part and help Mickey and his friends solve problems ranging from finding the triangle to picking the right tool for the job in order to finish the race. A microphone drops down so Mickey can "hear" kids participating. The microphone feature does not actually recognize correct answers, but it’s a nice way to keep kids engaged.

What's it about?

In Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally appisode, kids can not only sit back and watch along, but they can also take an active part in the show. As Mickey hosts and moves the plot forward, he often pauses for kids to answer and tap, shake, swipe, or drag as necessary. The plot has a good amount of humor to keep kids laughing.

Is it any good?

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally appisode is a great example of taking something familiar and applying it to something new. The appisode provides just enough interactive elements to elevate it from the TV version, yet not too many so that kids lose sight that it's still a show. Mickey provides great instruction as well as feedback during the interactive tasks. The one drawback is that the interactive elements don't change, so once you've gone through the show there are no new surprises for next time.
