When I was little, Mickey Mouse was a great friend – something I’ve written about in the past. In fact, before I got into things like STAR WARS and G.I. JOE, Mickey and his friends were tops, and that makes it even sweeter when I see my girls enjoying the “Magical World of Disney,” from DOC McSTUFFINS and SOFIA THE FIRST to MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE and MINNIE’S BOW-TIQUE. Of my two daughters, it’s Little Finley that has a particular affection for Mickey and Minnie, and that helps plant the Minnie’s Bow-Tique Hold My Hands Singing Minnie Mouse by Just Play on my 2014 Holiday Wish Guide. Recommended for Ages 3+, Minnie is a great toy that Finn has been enjoying hands-on, so much that I believe your little ones will love it, too.
Similar in function to the Mooshka dolls that I’ve previously featured, Minnie’s hands can be held to activate gentle glowing lights (tucked within her cloth body) as she sings to the tune of “Ring Around the Rosie.” While there is an electronic lights & sounds element, she’s still snuggly and a perfect companion for bedtime, daytime or anytime.
One sure-fire way to know a good toy? If the kids want to take it with in the car. Little Finn has taken Minnie on many adventures, including to get our car fixed (pictured lower right in the collage).
Bonus: A little something from my Mickey Mouse past…
