Pros: A bright colorful toy for you little one to enjoy.
Cons: Mickey falls down quite a lot when skating forward.
Talk and Skate Mickey is a neat toy my son got for Christmas this year. It is made by Fisher-price a trusted name in our house hold. For a little more than $10 you have a great and fun toy for your toddler.
Mickey has several things that he says. "Hi ya pal, let's roll" as the music starts playing and his head starts bobbing back and forth. When he falls down, he says " Hey pal, set me up!" And when you put him back on his feet, he tells you he wants to skate some more.
He is dressed in a cute outfit, with tan pants and a red shirt. They are both in bright colors, and his skates are black. If you squeeze his left hand he will talk to you, or use his radio control (cordless of course) to make him skate forwards or backwards.
Of course Mickey is designed for safety, as he wears a helmet on his head, and elbow pads in case he takes a tumble.
Mickey has a hard time rolling across thick carpeting but does really well on hard floors or tile. He has little wheels on the bottom of his skates that turn in motion to keep him going.
Mickey comes with batteries but the remote control does not. This requires a 9 Volt to make this option work.
Over all my son loves this toy. It is not his favorite one from Santa, but it keeps him entertained.
