My 2 year old daughter is obsessed with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show on Playhouse Disney. As i was shopping for her 2nd birthday gift, I came upon the Mickey Mouse toys at Toys R Us. I had looked at them before and read online reviews. I knew that there were some quality concerns but I also knew she would just love them!
I picked up the Talking Clubhouse and a few other toys to wrap up for her birthday party. This was the last gift she opened and she loved it. She wanted us to open it up right away!
It was easy enough to put together. There were really only two pieces to attach: shoe doorway and slide. There were also a number of stickers to place, which were easy to figure out by diagram. The slide does not stay attached, which I already knew from my previous research. Some say that super glue helps but I am just not worrying about it for now. My daughter likes me to keep putting it on even though it falls right back off the next time she tries to move the Clubhouse.
The toy is really cute. It comes with a talking Mickey figure. When placed on the toy and the button is pressed, these figures talk and "interact" with each other. Other figures are sold separately. My favorite part of the set is the Mousekadoer. It lights up and makes noise when Mickey Mouse says the magic words "Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse!"
The quality may not be the greatest or worth the $40, but the smile and joy my daughter has when playing with it makes it worth it to me.
