Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mickey Mouse Funhouse is a fast-paced, adventurous cartoon meant for preschoolers. Mickey Mouse takes his friends to a house that's in the forest, and this house not only talks, but has the ability to change into many different types of structures. There's some comic peril, like characters falling off of cliffs, being smashed by buildings, or singed by dragon's breath. No one is hurt, but youngest viewers might be sensitive to the smashing and crashing. There's also a lot of consumer product tie-in to be aware of.
Is It Any Good?
This colorful, fast-paced adventure will be very enticing for preschoolers -- There are houses with slides, roller coaster rides, cars that float, and lots of Disney friends to play with in the Mickey Mouse Funhouse world.
But there's more to it than that; there are some moral lessons that seep through, like, don't judge people -- find out more about them. Work together as a team. The female characters get to have a say in what they wear and what role they'll take (they might be a princess or a knight, for example), and girls help direct how the adventures unfold, but the majority of characters are male. Disney fans are going to enjoy this addition to the Mickey Mouse offerings.
