my youngest being a HUGE Mickey fan I never bought him the Dance Star Mickey
that was very popular for Christmas 2011.
I know many of my friends did buy them for their children but I wondered
about re-playability justified by the relatively high price. But having seen youngest play happily with
the latest version I realise that for him it would definitely have been worth
it. Youngest was mesmerised by him.
this is the third dancing Mickey model the dance movements are even more smooth
and realistic. Some of Mickey’s moves
look fairly complicated and its impressive a toy can actual do them so
well. These types of toys have come a
long way from the robotic pig I had that used to wiggle his tail, walk about a
bit and grunt. Mickey is doing
handstands, windmills and spin cycles with the ease of a true
professional! I used to look back fondly at my memories of that pig but now I feel slightly miffed I never had a dancing Mickey.
keeps returning to him again and again to dance, cuddle, and jump around
with. So I think the price of £69.99 (Smyths) for
this model although quite expensive is fair as this is a very advanced Mickey and will be much loved if the reaction of my youngest was anything to go by. He has over 15 fancy moves and
the music is pleasant enough to listen to even for adult ears. Some toys make a right racket and you long
desperately for the day the batteries run out, but Mickey is pretty funky and before you know it your feet will start mysteriously moving to the beat.
simply squeeze his nose to activate him, if he falls over he asks for help or
if you wait he rights himself. So a 2
year old could happily get the hang of using him. The
easiest way to see how much fun you can have with Mickey is a little video of
him in action. Here is youngest
strutting his stuff with his groovy new friend:
on his elder brother and him donned their baseball hats on (to join Mickey in
his modern dance gear!) and had another good workout. It is a great toy to get children active and up and moving
around. Mickey seemed to work well on
our carpets too, it is recommended to use him on a hard surface but he coped
amicably. That evening the boys slept
soundly! Hooray for toys that wear them
great toy for genuine Mickey fans.
