My little Mousekateer is almost three years old (already!). I know people say time flies and they can’t believe how fast their kids are growing, but seriously time with my youngest has flown by in a BLINK. A lot happened during the time she was younger, mostly my mom being sick and passing away, and I feel like my baby just grew into a full-blown toddler so very fast.
We are already registering her for preschool in the fall and it’s just mind-blowing that she’s able to recognize shapes and colors and count on her own. She absolutely LOVES Mickey Mouse so this iPad app bundle we got is perfect for her! Though my 4 year old has also fallen in love with this app bundle so he is who you see in the photos here!
Mickey’s Magical Arts World by Disney Imagicademy is a creative area where children can create their own characters that can star in animated movies alongside beloved Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie. The integrated program includes 30-plus app-based experiences – five of which are available now as part of Mickey’s Magical Math World – along with a companion app for parents – as well as books and other physical products that will be available for back-to-school 2015. The apps and products cover key subject matters that are important for early childhood development, including math, creative arts, science, reading and social and emotional skills.
There are five different apps in Mickey’s Magical Arts World where kids can do different activities.
- Experiment with line, shapes and texture in Mickey’s Drawing Studio
“Now, make another eye, just like before!” says Mickey in the painting game, “Seems to me, our character could use a-a-achoo! A nose!”
- Explore storytelling, improvisation, costume design, character development and role play with Donald
- Consider concepts of rhythm, tempo, patterns and melodies with Mickey’s Musical Marching Band
- Experiment with symmetry, balance and proportion as they design buildings with Minnie
“Stretching a building like that is so inventive!” says Minnie, “This building like to bounce to a good beat!”
- Play with oodles of virtual arts and crafts with Goofy!
Disney Imagicademy Parents
Disney Imagicademy Parents is an all-new free app that serves as a parent’s ‘go-to’ resource to connect with the Imagicademy community and gather information that can be used to engage with their child in meaningful ways.
The app will give parents their daily dose of what is possible and answer the question, “What can I do today to help my child grow?” through daily articles and Disney Imagicademy-inspired activities designed to help spark creativity and encourage imaginative learning. Disney Imagicademy Parents also serves as a portal into the children’s apps: Mickey’s Magical Math World and Mickey’s Magical Arts World, where parents can see their child’s latest creations, provide encouragement with a virtual “high five” and share their accomplishments with family and friends.
My kids were so very excited when I downloaded this Disney Imagicademy game to my iPhone! I wish I had a photo of their faces. They just love Mickey Mouse so much this game is perfect for them. I love the graphics quality and sound.
One thing I really loved is how the characters give instructions on how to play each game. It makes it so much easier for toddlers and preschoolers so they can play the games on their own without needing a grownup to walk them through it.
“Use any of the drawing tools to make a nose. That’s a nose all right! Great job!” says Mickey Mouse.
Disney Imagicademy is a new learning brand designed for families with children ages 3 to 8 to inspire a natural love of learning and encourage kids to learn by creating, making and doing.
