His virtual career has taken him from comic classic to movie sensation to star of television and video. Now Mickey is poised to take the children's software market by storm. Never mind that the activities in Mickey Mouse Kindergarten are only quasi-educational, and always original -- Mickey carries the program with a demure look, a happy-go-lucky giggle, and, of course, a collection of fabulous friends.
Ace reporter Mickey has just arrived in the 'Big City'. With pad and pen in hand, he prepares to scour the streets, searching for stories. Naturally, plenty await, and each is accompanied by an enjoyable activity. Kids practice number recognition and counting skills as they teach the effervescent Donald to samba. They learn attribute discrimination when they send the correct bellhop to the finicky hotel guest, tell time by comparing Mickey's watch with the town clock, and work on early reading skills while helping sleepwalking Goofy navigate his way back to his room. They will learn to follow directions in a hide and seek game with a wily thief and practice counting and addition skills in the video arcade. In addition, users unloose their creativity with a colorful sign-making activity and pursue away-from-the-computer activities with a printable Internet-like newspaper.
