There are plenty of "educational" dvds for younger audiences that are supposed to be entertaining too. Unfortunately, many fail to do either let alone both. That's why "MICKEY'S SEEING THE WORLD" is such a welcome surprise! Disney has really displayed an ability to teach youngsters(2-6)while keeping their undivided attention! Mickey and assorted friends take the viewer on a world geography trip of sorts. Sure, kids aren't going to retain everything here in one viewing, but, that's also why it's great for repeat viewings. Children get a fun way to associate animals with various geography as well as saying "hello" and "goodbye" in various languages and much, much more!
The film runs less than an hour, but there are plenty of extras thrown in as well. Two games (that also educate)and a short film are included here!
DISNEY has provided a 1.33:1 aspect ratio. The image is flawless. Colors are rich throughout and it's really pleasant to view.
DISNEY has also included a Dolby Digital 5.1. It's not aggressive by any means, but there are some fun surround effects and it adds to making this children's release a cut above the rest!
