Minnie and Daisy get their very own Happy Helpers DVD this July 25th. These best friends take on some of the biggest jobs throughout the community by helping friends and their loved ones with a song and a smile. It may sound easy enough, but these tasks take responsibility to the next level. They have to babysit an egg, help with a hula, fix what is broken and so much more! It is all racers to the starting line as Minnie’s Happy Helpers bring the fun to every Disney home. Grab a copy of Minnie’s Happy Helpers from Amazon.com.
Minnie’s Happy Helpers DVD comes with 6 Happy Helper episodes, including
Happy Hula Helpers!
Tea Time Trouble!
Happy Birthday Helpers!
Bed, Breakfast and Bungled!
and a bonus episode:
These episodes are actually really entertaining for the whole family. The younger kids in the family will love to see their favorite characters singing and having fun while they help their community. Each episode teaches friendship, socialization, understanding, patience, and acceptance along with helping others. The adults will love the humor.
An example of amazing friendship, patience and understanding can be found in every episode but the one that caught my eye was “Bed, Breakfast and Bungled!” Minnie agrees to take over a hotel while the owner is away. She calls on her friends to help her, which they all jump at the chance to do so. Already the episode is showing what it takes to be a fantastic friend. Minnie then goes on to show how patience and understanding are some of the greatest qualities of a friend. When Clarabelle Cow can’t find a job that is right for her, Minnie doesn’t give up. She knows there is something for everyone. Even when the situation goes from bad to worse as a flood threatens the hotel, she still has faith in her friend. Her patience and understanding teach kids that not everything will go as planned but we can continue to trust that our friends have our back just as we have theirs.
While there are some awesome socialization lessons, Minnie’s Happy Helpers also realizes that adult will be watching this film as well. Enter the sassy and sarcastic Cuckoo-Loca, Minnie’s cuckoo clock bird. Much of her humor is probably lost on the younger audience members, but it is not lost on the adults. I found her hilarious and I am sure most adults will as well. Not only is Cuckoo-Loca hilarious but I found myself laughing at crazy situations as they unfolded. Let’s just say I need a Molly the Mallet. In “Egg-Xasperating!” Daisy fixes their machine by hitting it with an unusually large mallet…We all know the feeling. If it refuses to work, give it some tough love HAHAHA.
After watching Minnie’s Happy Helpers and laughing through much of it, this is one DVD I won’t mind being played over and over again (It is better to face that now, it will be a repeated request). It gets the 5 out of 5 stars from SKGaleana.
