Software Review:    Mickey Mouse Preschool

Related Links
 

It's a lazy afternoon, and while Mickey waits for his car to get fixed, preschoolers get a chance to explore early learning activities in and around the garage and diner. They learn about color mixing and exercise early math skills as they pump gas for customers; they enjoy some workbook-style activities found on the placemats of Daisy's diner; and they squirt water at paint cans labeled with the required numbers and letters. 

Replay value is the big question with this one. Though graphics are stunning, and learning activities are quite sound, none of the activities stand out enough to make kids want to come back repeatedly. The diner activities do not carry enough variety to have much replay value either.

Pros:
  • The games are relaxed and educational.
  • Graphics are excellent
  • Activities are sound and enjoyable

 

Cons:
  • Difficulty levels cannot be adjusted.
  • Games may not have much long-term appeal
