MICKEY MOUSE: MASH UP works a lot better on paper than in reality. Letting kids take part in the creative process of making a cartoon, for example, sounds great. But the drawing feature simply doesn't work well. Straight lines often come out broken. And putting dots on a picture only works some of the time. Similarly, mini-games seem like an easy addition to the app, but they're so simplistic that kids will quickly tire of them.

On the upside, the cartoon short itself is a funny one, and kids likely will enjoy watching as Mickey tries to hide his pants-less state from Minnie and Daisy. And, although a grumpy Goofy may confuse some kids, he's not particularly mean. (Though why Disney used him in the gruff role instead of using its go-to villain Pete is a bit baffling.)

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
