My 5-year-old daughter loves the new series since Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is one of her favorite Disney shows. She is already familiar with all the characters and seeing them in new adventures is always exciting. The Happy Helpers is now her favorite part of the new series since she loves Minnie and Daisy, and she thinks it is so much fun seeing them change into new outfits each time.
This new series brings more fun and adventures to your favorite pals! The spinoff from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is quite refreshing, but there are a few differences that I see. First off, the new series is made for children ages 4+. This series no longer pauses for your child’s response, and the animation is much faster. The vocabulary and some of the jokes are made for a big kid audience. Children are no longer learning about numbers and shapes, but they are learning more about life lessons instead. I like the new series as it is an extension of something the children are already familiar with, not to mention, the humor is something parents will love.
