Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Mickey Mouse takes the role of a newspaper reporter in Disney's Get Ready for School with Mickey. Aimed at four to six year olds, the activities on the CD-ROM mix fun and learning, and the child's progress is monitored to make sure it does not either bore or over-stretch its users. Parents can access information screens that provide instruction on how to use each activity and the skills it teaches, which will help them ensure their children get the most from the software.

The action begins on a night-time street, with Mickey searching for a news story. Click all around and you'll find various activities. Mickey crops up during these from time to time to take snaps for the paper. You can access his work and use it as a source to print extension activities to do away from the computer. Among the many activities Hide and Seek is good fun. A weasel ducks into an alley, and a policeman is there to help you find the weasel by letting you know the kind of object the weasel is hiding behind and what it sounds like. You then click around until you find the weasel who then pops out, taunts you, and runs to hide again.

A favourite part of the software is sure to be the Neon Puzzler, a freeform drawing area in which you place differently shaped strips--like neon lights--onto a board to make pictures. There are templates to follow, or you can create your own designs. --Sandra Vogel

4.0 out of 5 stars Great learning environment 24 Feb 2003
By A Customer
I always believe in Disney values and this title proves no different in applying that in a fun learning environment. The disney characters are used throughout with Mickey leading the chorus. Numbers, words, patterns and observations are all used well and my daughter has enjoyed this. It also automatically detects your childs ability and allocates the difficulty. Unless your child prefers the Winnie the Pooh version I have no difficulty in recommending this.
