Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that VTech MobiGo - Mickey Mouse Clubhouses is a collection of mini-games based on the television show of the same name. Most of the games focus on math concepts using familiar activities from the show, like calling for Toodles and using the "mystery Mousketool." The game stars mostly on Mickey Mouse and Pluto, but includes appearances from Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Pete.

What's it about?
VTECH MOBIGO SOFTWARE - MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE invites kids into Mickey's world as he tries to find Pluto's Super-Duper Bouncy Ball. Four of the games use one of the Mousketools and each focuses on a different math concept. There is also a section for counting with coins to pay Pete, and an activity where Mickey dances with his pals, Pluto, Minnie, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Goofy.
Is it any good?
VTech MobiGo Software - Mickey Mouse Clubhouse holds a lot of appeal for fans of the television show. Most of the games reinforce math concepts in a familiar and fun setting, such as having kids fly a plane and helping Mickey jump over obstacles. A few of the activities seem to be there just for fun -- like the one where kids help the characters dance by tapping Mickey or Minnie's hand when it lights up. This is a cute and age appropriate game for preschool kids, but it's lacking a storyline or guided progression through the different sections.
