EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The classic look of Mickey Mouse gets an update with the Disney Mickey Mouse & Friends Glow Friends Mickey. This soft six-inch Mickey toy is round like a ball and features the same look of the original animated Mickey Mouse but with lights and sound. Tap Mickey's head to make him light up white. Give Mickey another tap to watch the light change colors. And tap Mickey yet a third time to hear Mickey Mouse phrases, such as “Hey there! Nice to see ya again! It's me, Mickey!”, “That's cool!”, and “Hot dog!” The light will also continue to glow and change colors. The packaging doesn't say this, but the light can stay on up to 30 minutes or until you tap Mickey again to turn it off.

There is also a four-inch Disney Mickey Mouse & Friends Glow Friends Mickey, sold separately, that only has the light-up feature and no sound.

Is It Fun?
This will be a fun collectible for Disney fans young and old. Kids will like how easy it is to activate the lights, and the Mickey phrases will bring the character to life to enhance the imaginative play. But the light-up feature makes this Mickey Mouse toy look really cool when kept out on display in any fan's room, especially if you turn out the lights and use it as a nightlight. Little kids might feel a little better going to sleep at night when they see that their good friend Mickey Mouse is nearby.
Who It’s For
The Disney Mickey Mouse & Friends Glow Friends Mickey is for ages 3 and up. Mickey Mouse fans of all ages will like the cute, round look of one of their favorite Disney characters. It will be fun for kids to play with thanks to its light-up feature and Mickey character phrases, but it also makes a really cute nightlight in a Mickey fan's bedroom.
What To Be Aware Of

The six-inch Mickey Glow Friend comes with three AAA batteries for the in-store try-me features, so we recommend replacing them before you play for best results.

Disney fans can also collect a Disney Mickey Mouse & Friends Glow Friends Minnie in both large and small sizes, sold separately.
