Mickey Mouse Dance Star Mickey
Combine a classic Disney character with devastating dance moves, music and interactive features and you have a winning formula. A Preschool Toy of the Year nominee, Dance Star Mickey is brand new for 2011.
He’s got it all going on; awesome moves and funny phrases including ‘Go Mickey’ and ‘It’s your birthday.’ Other features include interactive games that kids can play with friends.
Let’s take a look at what makes this 2-foot high groover a worthy contender for a spot under the Christmas tree.
All it takes is one press of the foot and Dance Star Mickey comes alive, throws some shapes, claps and sings. He’s not picky when it comes to music and will get his groove on to everything from techno to Latino beats. He comes with 6 different songs including the James Brown classic ‘Get Up Offa that Thing.’
In case you were wondering, he can do the MJ Moon Walk. Not to mention the Mambo. He’s a smooth mover and can shuffle forward, backward, twist and turn.
There’s also a game mode to explore. Press Mickey’s left hand to switch between 2 different games.
‘Mickey Says’ involves kids following and repeating Mickey’s moves when he gives the signal.
‘Freeze Dance’ is a fun game that involves dancing to the beat when Mickey says ‘go’ and instantly freezing when he shouts ‘stop’.
Mickey Mouse Dance Star Mickey is priced at around £69.99, requires 6 x AA batteries and is aimed at toddlers aged 2 and up. If you’re looking for an ingenious, interactive Christmas toy, check him out.
