I was sent an advance copy of this to review ahead of it's first broadcast on Playhouse Disney UK this Saturday (19th March) at 9 AM. I have to admit I can't remember when I last watched Playhouse Disney as we are currently running on only terrestrial channels so it was great to be able to what we have been missing.
The main characters took me back to my own childhood with Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Goofy and company. The animation is obviously more hi tech but the voices and the characteristics haven't changed.
There is a lot of audience participation with the characters pausing to allow the children to supply the answers to simple questions relating to colours, counting and memory. The basic storyline encourages team work and problem solving. This makes for a very educational programme for younger children and one I don't mind my children watching or even object to having one when I am in the room!
If you want a sneak peak then check out the official trailer here on YouTube:
This is what my 7 year daughter thought:
It was funny. I liked the surprise special bows at the end. I would watch it again. 10/10 from me.
I certainly wouldn't mind having Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse: Minnie's Bow-Tique on in my house this Saturday morning. I would love to see what the rest of the series is like too as it's a real blast from my past to see Mickey Mouse and his friends on my television. I had better start saving up to upgrade my television subscription to include more children's channels...
