Dear Mummy, I’m a massive fan of Disney Junior and a new TV programme which has really captured my attention is Mickey and the Roadster Racers! It features characters that I’m already familiar with from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show. Mickey and his friends participate in high-speed races in their hometown, Hot Dog Hills, and around the world in vehicles that can transform. It’s a bit like wacky races. The first episode aired in January 2017 and I’ve been tuning in ever since.
The familiar names joining Mickey on the track are Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Pluto. Off the track, Minnie and Daisy are busy running a business with which they solve problems for people in need called the Happy Helpers and the new toy range reflects this. We’ve been sent some new toys from the show.
Happy Helpers Bowtique Cash Register -£17.99
We’re taking a trip to the shops with the next couple of items that we are reviewing. As with the rest of the Happy Helper’s range, the Bowtique Cash Register is very pink. Maybe a bit too pink for my mummy but I absolutely love the sticky sweet colour.
All the buttons make realistic cashier noises and if you press the large bow button you can hear Minnie’s phrases from the show. You can turn the blue key and it opens the cash drawer and we liked the colourful paper money and silver coins included in the pack.
The drawer opens easily and you can swipe the credit card through the machine which makes a supermarket beep. The pink scanner which slots into the register isn’t connected with cord and doesn’t make a noise and has been lost several times already which is a shame. It takes 2 batteries which are included in the box.
The real working calculator is good along with the working cash drawer and I have fun taking money and opening and closing the drawer. The pretend credit card also looks realistic and due to the small parts (the coins) is recommended for ages 3+ with batteries included in the box.
Minnie’s Happy Helpers Shopping Basket – £14.99
The Bowtastic Shopping Basket Set which goes with the Bowtique cash register is the same pink. It comes with a selection of play food and a mixture of plastic canned food and cartons. There are pieces of food of which can be ‘cut’ in half like the pie, loaf, cake and apple which I enjoying cutting with the plastic knife included. We love that this shopping basket is pink and not a boring colour.
Because of the loose parts it’s again suitable for ages 3 and above. It also has a shopping list and we’ve already had hours of fun acting out trips to the super market taking turns to be the shopper and the cashier. So it’s definitely worth the investment to buy them together as a set!
We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Mickey and Minnie toys and we’re helping to host a twitter party on Thursday 10th August at 1pm – 3pm and would love to see you there.
