Why Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is My Favorite Children's Show
Like many parents of toddlers, I try to limit my children’s screen time. But, like so many other parents, I recognize how useful a show can be in keeping a small child entertained on a sick day, during an important phone call, or just during that five p.m. meltdown right when you’re trying to get dinner together and the final push toward bedtime.
During my stint as a nanny almost a decade ago and now as a parent, I’ve seen my fair number of children’s shows. And Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is definitely my all-time favorite.
Here are nine reasons I love it:
That Disney Attention to Detail
I’ve always loved Disney’s incredible attention to detail and this show is no exception. Every episode feels well-made and smart, not slapped together.
I love that the characters my girls see in these shows are ones they’ll encounter over and over again throughout their lives.
I love both the opening and closing songs so much, and NOTHING is cuter than hearing my toddler sing along.
Good Mix of Consistency and Variety
I really like that there are familiar songs and elements to each show, mixed with new material to keep it fresh and interesting.
I love that each episode shows the characters working through problems in a smart, realistic way. What a great model for little ones!
I love the good language and terms that are used – it’s so fun for me to watch my daughter’s vocabulary expand!
No Bad Behavior
One of my main quibbles with much of the children’s programming is the bad behavior it shows. I love that Mickey Mouse Clubhouse has teamwork, problem solving, and pleasant characters. No snarkiness needed! I don’t have to worry that my daughter will be doing or saying naughty things after watching.
I appreciate that it asks questions and allows children a chance to answer. It also gives me an opportunity to watch it with my girls and discuss it with them.
