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

5.0 out of 5 stars Mickey's Wacky Fun School Days 9 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This product is the best out of all that will show all children today, that school isn't like the trip to the dentist's. It will show children-of all ages here- that school was made for haveing fun and giving out life experience. School has advantages and disadvantages but when you enter the real world life of schooling, you make friends and have games which will be in a child's most treasured and precious memories of all time. Most childdren today who are just starting school, don't know about this though and may have trouble adjusting to the idea of having to wake up in the morning and go to school, where you don't know anybody and people hate you. Mickey and the gang give your child a faint idea of how much fun and joy, school can bring to a child and their education level, which will of course, rise. If you buy this item for your child, I shall guaruntee you that you and your child will have fun with this product, which will give you the ideal best to you and your household.
