How many colours are there in the rainbow?
on 12 January 2011
My son loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and for the most part, so do I, however there are a couple of exceptions to this. Mickey's rainbow adventure, and Minnies Rainbow are two of them. I will never understand why a programme that is full of great educational concepts, and from which my son has learnt a lot, would decide to teach children that there are only SIX colours in the rainbow. They have mixed indigo and violet to make purple, and made the colours into a very catchy song.
My son is 2.5 years old and the other day we looked in a book at a rainbow and he got cross because it had indigo and violet in it and he wanted to know 'where's purple?'I tried to explain about the other colours but he was adamant there should be a purple. If it can't be taught correctly - why do it at all?
On the otherhand, Mickey's Art Show is a fun episode, in which Goofy tries his hand at various forms of art with amusing results.
All Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episodes are attention grabbing and lots of fun, but be aware of what your child will learn about the colours of the rainbow before you buy!
