Remember “Tickle Me Elmo” and how those toys flew off the shelves? This year Disney and Fisher Price toys are teaming up to get America’s children laughing and dancing with Dance Star Mickey – and I predict this will be one of the hottest, most wanted toys of the season.
Dance Star Mickey is a musical, interactive toy made for children age 2 and up. With a press of his foot, Mickey Mouse sings songs, claps his hands and even moon walks. He comes with 6 songs and his fun movements will delight your music-loving child as he or she moves with Mickey.
The songs are not all the same either – Mickey sings Disco, Latin, Techno, and a Moonwalk grand finale. He is also programed with interactive games that will have children and parents laughing and dancing right along.
Normally I ask for toys that require no batteries (unless they are motorized trains) because I believe the less a toy does, the more a child’s imagination takes over. But musical toys are different. Lizzie is such a fan of music – she constantly singing and dancing – I can see her playing with this toy (in another room from me) for a very long time. Honestly, batteries can die early and I can get a break if his voice and music is too much for me. But the fun times Lizzie will have dancing with Mickey cannot be replaced.
For another look at this fun toy, here is a short demonstration!
You can purchase Dance Star Mickey online at the DisneyStore.com, Amazon.com, KMart, Sears, Toys R Us and Babies R Us!
(I suggest getting it online to avoid the long lines at the store!)
