Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Disney's Pre-school Adventures with Mickey is a great CD-ROM developed for 2 to 4 year olds. The action starts with Mickey and Minnie happily driving along in an animated sequence. They run out of petrol and stop to fill up. This is where the fun starts, as the place they stop is full of activities.

The emphasis is less on education than it is on fun. For example in Goofy's Body Shop you can build a car bringing the different parts together and painting your creation. Later you can sit in Huey, Dewey and Louie's car playing around with windscreen wipers, fiddling with the glove compartment and indicators, tooting the horn at passing Disney characters and so on. There are also more traditional learning activities. Pop into the cafe, and you'll find matching games, activities that teach about relative size, naming games and more.

Several children can register to use the software, and it tailors itself to their particular needs, so that the more adept won't get frustrated by repeating tasks they've completed successfully. There is plenty for parents here too including on-board information pages explaining the reasoning behind each activity, listing the skills it teaches, and providing instructions on how to work with in each activity.

Disney's Pre-school Adventures with Mickey is well worth a look. It is neatly designed, its activities have been thoughtfully put together, and the help for parents is a real plus. --Sandra Vogel

Manufacturer's Description

The software is based on the Active Learning Method, which encourages children to explore, discover and create while they learn. The product enhances memory, listening and observation skills as well as inspiring creativity and imagination.

1.0 out of 5 stars Surprising disappointment - well worth a miss 21 April 2001
By Andreas Gryphius VINE VOICE
I had already bought 3 of the Disney Learning Series products for my 2-year-old. This was the 4th. While an award should certainly go to the "Winnie-the-Pooh" Pre-school product (in terms of educational psychology and teaching success it is exemplary), the "Mickey" sister product is an utter failure. This is all the more surprising, as of the two products for younger children ("Toddler" versions), "Mickey" is slightly better than "Winnie-the-Pooh" and both are well worth buying.
Details: some of the Mickey pre-school activities fail to go beyond the most basic toddler activities; development pre-requisites are muddled up; the shoot-em-up is of dubious implications for moral development; there are comparatively few activities; unlike the "Winnie-the-Pooh" product there is no choice of levels and no overall goal; in general it looks like this product was made only by a programmer, with Disney failing to employ any educationalists or child psychologists on the project. While it is true that a very young child will have a certain amount of fun with this, it will learn almost nothing.
Note to Disney: don't tinker with this - dump it and create a completely new version so that it doesn't damage the reputation of your otherwise excellent learning series.
Worth buying: (1) age 1.5 to 2: Mickey and/or Winnie-the-Pooh Toddler versions; (2) age 2.5 + : Winnie-the-Pooh Pre-school version only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mickey Mouse Preschool Learning 2-4 yrs 18 Oct 2003
By A Customer
My little grand daughter was absolutely captivated by this pc game. There are so many different activities, and she quickly learned letters and numbers from using this aid, as well as having tremendous fun in the process.Goofy,Daisy Duck, Donald Duck and Minnie also feature. SUPER for little ones!
