Dance Star Mickey Rocks!
One of this year’s most anticipated new toys is the Fisher Price Dance Star Mickey. Your kids will not be able to contain themselves when they see their favorite little mouse come to life right before their eyes. Before you know it they’ll be chanting “Mickey’s in the house” as he begins to perform to their delight.
If you thought the Fisher Price Elmo Live Encore was cute last year then you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see Mickey come alive this year. Leave it to Disney and Fisher Price to produce a toy that will both entertain the kids while enticing them to get up and boogie all at the same time. Mickey will clap, sing, and dance while your kids laugh, clap, and dance along with him. In fact, Mickey probably dances better than you or I!
- Dance Star Mickey walks, talks, tell jokes, and dances like he’s never danced before. Fisher Price has really got it right with this toy because Mickey has an enhanced range of motion that makes this animated toy even more entertaining than those who came before him. Just press his foot and he’s start performing with that happy go lucky attitude of his.
- Dancing Mickey can sing a wide range of different songs including some Disco, Latin, and Techno. This fun-loving mouse will get down to 5 different songs and will encourage your kids to get up and dance along with him. He even performs the moonwalk while he talks to the kids. When Mickey says “that’s right – you got it!”, the best part of his performance is about to begin with the “out of this world” grand finale to one of his signature dances.
- Dance Star Mickey is the perfect size for kids and stands about 2 feet tall. He’s incredibly soft, plush, and huggable. He’s engaging, personable, and has an attitude that exudes FUN! He even plays two interactive games that make him that much more appealing. The game mode is just as fun as the dancing mode. If you’re shopping on a budget then you’ll really get your money’s worth with this one. Mickey will entertain on multiple levels so you can justify that money spend on this great toy was spent with good reason.
- Mickey is age appropriate for children aged 2 and older. He performs like he does due to the rollers that are on the bottoms of his feet. He can move forward, backward, and scoot to the side before he begins his Michael Jackson moonwalk performance. All he needs to operate are 6 AA batteries that are placed in his feet. You’ll get hours of fun out of these batteries but feel free to get the rechargeable if you think you’ll need them.
- As parents, it’s our responsibility to make sure that the toys we provide our children are both educational and developmentally stimulating. Dance Star Mickey fits the bill in both of these areas. Your kids will be developing both their listening and memorization skills when they listen and then repeat the songs that Mickey sings. They’ll also gain social skills by singing along with Mickey and engaging those who are around them to join in too. They’ll gain balance and coordination by clapping, dancing, and getting up and down to join in the fun.
- The Fisher Price Dance Star Mickey is sure to be one of this year’s most popular Christmas and birthday gifts. You won’t want to miss out on this one so order early before the mad rush occurs. I can hear the chanting already….”Go Mickey, Go Mickey!” He’ll knock your socks off with the fun that he brings!
- Fisher Price toys and Disney’s Magic Kingdom have really gone above and beyond with this amazing gift that your kids will love to receive on the holiday. If they’ve always thought that the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was fun then they’re going to love this dancing version of Mickey!
Donny Osmond was the lucky one who got to reveal the Dance Star Mickey at this year’s Toy Fair:
Ever wonder why kids love Mickey Mouse so much? It’s really quite simple. He’s a very happy fella with big ears and he makes our kids laugh. He’s colorful, his voice is catchy, and he does things that our kids can fantasize about. He stimulates their little imaginations, he makes them think and learn, and now he can dance up a storm in the middle of your living room. Dance Star Mickey will rock your holiday season so get ready now for the fun that’s about to come!
Mickey Mouse began his film career in the 1920’s and his band of supporting characters included his girlfriend Minnie Mouse, arch enemy Pegleg Pete, pals Horace Horsecollar and Goofy, and that fun loving dog Pluto. Amazingly, Mickey’s only Academy Award is for a film that he didn’t even star in, Lend A Paw, who’s main character was actually Pluto. His most famous role (that was Oscar winning no less) was as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice in Fantasia.
King Features Syndicate launched the very first Mickey Mouse comic strip in 1930. He also starred in books, sheet music, and many other types of printed documents. He’s been incredibly loved since day one and his group of comrades have enjoyed the limelight too although none of them have risen to the level of fame that Mickey carries.
In 1955 The Mickey Mouse Club roared to life on our TV screens with an ever changing cast of teenage performers. Hosted by Jimmie Dood, the “head Mouseketeer”, these teens danced and sang their way into our hearts. Annette Funicello and Cubby O’Brien are probably two of the most famous and initial Mouseketeers. Not only did these groups of kids entertain but many of them went on to future fame because of the exposure that they had being a Mouseketeer. Famous participants include Christina Aguilera, Johnny Crawford, Britney Spears, Keri Russell, Tony Lucca, Justine Timberlake, and Lisa Whelchel.
So it’s no wonder that Mickey is still as well loved today as he has been throughout the years. Dance Star Mickey comes on stage with loads of fun and appeal for kids of all ages. He’s ready to dance, ready to have some fun, and ready to get your kids off their feet. You won’t be sorry to have him in your home because you’re most likely going to love him just as much as the kids! He’s fun and loveable and he’s a classic toy that can’t be beat. For a mere small price you’ll soon see that this is a toy that will make your kids just ecstatic with joy. My granddaughter is an incredible shy little girl – until Dance Star Mickey landed under her Christmas tree. Now she’ll dance and sing with just about anyone, all thanks to the Fisher Price Dance Star Mickey.
