Holiday 2010- Stocking Stuffers: Disney’s Mickey Mote

On November 16th Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release the Mickey Mote! This one-of-a-kind kid’s remote control (shaped like Mickey ears) will provide a whole new viewing experience for children. Kids can control the remote and interact with their favorite Disney characters. Multiple levels of play guarantee hours of fun as well as challenging adventures. For it’s debut Mickey Mote will be packaged with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Number Roundup and Handy Manny: Big Construction Job.

This coming holiday, parents and their preschoolers will discover a whole new way to watch and play their favorite Disney preschool DVDs, with the all-new “Mickey Mote”. This one-of-a-kind, kid’s remote control, from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, will debut this November 16th packed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Number Roundup and Handy Manny: Big Construction Job. The new “Mickey Mote” is a child-friendly handheld remote control, shaped like Mickey ears, that will take children’s viewing experience to a whole new level by providing an engaging interaction with their favorite Disney characters. With multiple levels of play, the new Mickey Mote will provide hours of fun, engaging and challenging adventures for kids age 2-5. The Mickey Mote is a value for moms and fun for kids!

How It Works:

The Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes Discovery Mode™, the interactive “Watch & Play” feature on the DVD! All parents have to do is program the remote control – there’s an easy and quick set-up guide in each DVD- and select the Discovery Mode feature on the menu screen. Within minutes, kids will be easily responding to questions, throughout the story, about scenes they just watched (such as “What color is Goofy’s hat?”) by pressing one of four color-coded buttons on the device — a yellow star, green circle, orange triangle or blue square – to click in their responses. Discovery Mode features include two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.

Why Parents Will Love It:
Once families have purchased a Disney Preschool DVD that comes packaged with the Mickey Mote, they can continue to build their Disney Preschool libraries as the Mickey Mote works in compatibility with any Discovery Mode enhanced DVD. For example, kids can immediately use the remote with any of the following titles:

  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Road Rally
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Adventures in Wonderland
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Choo Choo
  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-Tique
  • Handy Manny: Manny’s Motorcycle Adventure
  • Handy Manny: Manny’s Big Race
  • Little Einsteins: Fire Truck Blast Off
  • My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Super Duper Super Sleuths
  • My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Bedtime With Pooh

Note: Discovery Mode can also be played using any DVD remote control.
Look for more Discovery Mode DVDs on future Disney Preschool franchise releases such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Handy Manny!

    Hello, bought the Mickey mote for my 3 year old, he loves mickey, but I did the programming and the light came on, I actually have same remote as in your pic above, but when he pushed the correct button nothing happened….it said to hold down 2 buttons to turn on, but seriuosly do I have to do that everytime he wants to answer?? Or am I just missing how its suppose to stay on. Its quit far into the show before he gets a chance to use it. Please help if anyone has the answer to how to keep it on! thanks Rochelle
