Overview Of The Mickey Mouse Learning Series
The active learning philosophy of the Mickey Mouse Learning Series seeks to make learning fun and interesting by allowing toddlers to exercise creativity while mastering key skills.
There is an emphasis on exploration and discovery. Toddlers learn an activity by playing it, without needing elaborate instructions. There are opportunities to develop problem-solving skills that will equip toddlers to be lifelong learners.
Full of humor and surprise, the activities engage the toddler and allow them the power of choice. The Mickey Mouse Learning series uses active learning principles to stimulate learning in an entertaining and positive environment.
Different toddlers have varying abilities at different ages. In addition, a particular toddler's development can change radically in a short time. Disney's Learning Series dynamically and intuitively adjusts to the abilities of the toddler playing the game so that it is fun and not frustrating for the 2 year old, and still as fun, yet challenging, for the going on 4 year old.
In the busy auto shop, a mechanic is at work as a tune plays on the radio. Your toddler is free to explore the different noise and music combinations as they click on the various objects in the workshop.
Click on the mechanic and he'll grab a tool or piece of machinery and keep time to the rhythm. There are also a bunch of objects in the garage that will make interesting noises if they are clicked on. Clicking on the radio causes the station to change creating a new noisy mechanical symphony.
Goofy's Body Shop
Goofy's a very creative mechanic, but in this busy Body Shop, he could sure use some help customizing an endless line-up of cars.
Your toddler can creatively participate by choosing which color to paint the different kinds of funky tires. Hitting the go button causes the car to be pulled out of the body shop on the conveyer belt and a new chassis will enter, ready for customizing.
Knock the Can
Donald Duck is in the back of Daisy's diner hanging up the laundry when his three favorite nephews,, Huey, Dewey, and Louie show up, ready for mischief. Even though they promise their uncle they'll stay out of trouble, as soon as he leaves they launch into a round of their favorite game - Knock the Can. All they need now is a bunch of empty cans and someone to help them aim the garden hose.
In this action packed arcade style game, shapes, numbers and other objects appear on a sandwich board at the side of the screen. Tin cans are lined up along the fence, each displaying a different symbol. When your toddler aims the crosshair and sprays water at the tin can with the matching symbol, it gets knocked off the fence. When all of the objects on the sandwich board have been hit, a new set of objects appears on the board to match.

Ding! Ding! Here comes another customer wheeling into Goofy's Highway Pitstop.
Your toddler gets to direct the eager young attendant running the gas pumps by selecting the right amount and color of gas. By listening to the customer's request, your toddler decides what the car needs before it heads back onto the highway. There goes another satisfied customer.
As the cars roll in, listen to the customer's request.
By clicking on the various dials on the pump, you can select the color and amount of gas to dispense. Once the amount and color have been selected, the nozzle will start to vibrate. Clicking on the nozzle will cause the attendant to spring into action.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie's Opposite Car
An old car up on blocks provides the perfect setting for this exploratory activity in which your toddler will learn about such concepts as opposites and cause and effect.
Joined by Huey, Dewey, and Louie, your toddler can try out all the knobs and dials under the watchful eye of Mickey. Try clicking on the radio, the turn signals, look in the rear view mirror, twirl the odometer, click the turn indicators, turn on the air conditioning, turn on the wipers, honk the horn, and open and close the glove compartment.
Clicking on any of these items will produce a response from the three "backset drivers." It's a fun and safe way to explore a place that fascinates most toddlers - the inside of a car.
