Mickey and the Roadster Racers and Minnie Happy Helpers toy review #MickeyandMinnieToys

If you’re a Disney fan, then Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be no strangers.

In fact even if you are a huge bah humbug and hate everything Disney, or in fact every cartoon ever made, you should still know Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Come on now.

What you might not know unless you have preschool-aged kids is that Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their friends Goofy, Pluto, Donald and Daisy Duck have their own show, Mickey and the Roadster Racers which has been playing since January on Disney Junior. In it, Mickey and friends race around in their roadsters, having adventures. Minnie, ever the entrepreneur, has her own business with Daisy called ‘The Happy Helpers’ where they solve people’s problems.

It’s a cute and engaging little series and the kids enjoy it, so when I was asked to review the Mickey and the Roadster Racers and Minnie Happy Helpers new toy range from Flair, I thought they would love it.

The range of Mickey and Minnie toys is aimed at preschoolers and children aged 3-6.

I can safely say it was more exciting than any other package we’ve received. It contained:

Mickey Roadster Racers Talking Tool Belt

The talking tool belt is a great toy for budding mechanics. As implied by the name, the tool belt ‘talks’ when you press the button. The screwdriver also goes round so you can fix your dad’s car which will make him ever so pleased.

On a completely unrelated note, please, don’t let small children near the car with this kit. Although it is plastic, being hit repeatedly with a screwdriver is not good for a Nissan Qashqai.

Mickey Roadster Racers Pit Crew Tool Box

The Pit Crew Tool Box is a fab little idea to keep a small DIY enthusiast amused. It comes with ‘nuts and bolts’ which can be screwed in to the plates with the screwdriver and ‘nails’ which can be hammered in with the mallet. 
The toolbox itself has holes which you can push nails and screws through and the whole kit easily fits back into the box for storage. This was my personal favourite from the range and despite being a bit on the young side, the small one has claimed this as his own.


Minnie’s Happy Helpers Bag Playset

The runaway favourite for both children here; the Minnie’s Happy Helper’s Bag Set comes with a hard plastic bag, into which you can pop the mobile phone (which lights up and makes sounds when you push the buttons) and a wallet containing a passport and boarding pass. Also included is a bracelet; you click the Minnie Mouse off of the bag and can wear it on your wrist.
The bag is pink and glittery; everything my daughter looks for in a bag. It’s not the most practical thing to take on a trek through the woods, but take it she did and took very good care of it too.
She finds the wallet/passport case a little hard to open, but I’m sure she’ll get the hang of it soon.


Minnie’s Happy Helpers Bowtique Cash Register

As with the rest of the Happy Helper’s range, the Bowtique Cash Register is very very pink.
All the buttons make noises (of course) and if you press the bow button you can hear Minnie saying several phrases. The drawer opens and you can swipe the credit card through which makes a pleasing beep. 
Unlike other tills we’ve played with, the scanner which slots into the register isn’t connected and has been lost several times already. It wouldn’t be my choice (sorry Minnie!) from the range but it has kept the smalls amused and they, unlike me, enjoy the phrases and sounds!

Minnie’s Happy Helpers Shopping Basket

The Bowtastic Shopping Basket Set which goes with the Bowtique cash register is just as pink. It comes with a selection of play food, seven pieces of which can be ‘cut’ in half.
Every child should have a shopping basket; we’ve had a selection through the years but this seems sturdy, it’s a good size and above all, it is pink.


Mickey Roadster Racers Musical Light-up Microphone

Finally, the musical microphone! The microphone plays the catchy theme tune to Mickey and the Roadster Racers whilst flashing red and blue. These are going in the Twitter party bags, sadly, so my children will not get to entertain me whilst singing into them. What a shame!
