Review: 10772 Mickey Mouse's Propeller Plane

Nnneeaoowww!  Take to the air with Aviator Mickey Mouse and soar through the sky in classic 1930's style. 



This is the smallest of the new Mickey and Friends sets, and easily my favorite. The shaping of the propeller plane is skillfully captured, and I just want to swoosh it around my house. It's simple and fun. Plus, Aviator Mickey is excellent.

Review: 10774 Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse's Space Rocket

Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse's Space Rocket has landed on an unexplored planet. Are those green crystals a new mineral? Are those boulders or pods full of alien creatures? 



This 4+ set includes a space rocket, research station, and several small side builds. While it is a small simple build, there is plenty of space for your imagination as Mickey and Minnie take samples of the green crystals and discover a cute little alien. 



The space rocket easily opens up for interior access and is large enough for both moustronuats with room for stowing their equipment and lunch.

Review: 10773 Minnie Mouse's Ice Cream Shop

What's better in summer than a day at the beach? And what's the perfect treat? Ice cream!

Join Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck for a day of fun in the sun, sand, and waves. Then cool off with your favorite icy treat. 



This is a 4+ set and is accordingly simplified. The builds are basic but there are no stickers and some fun new parts. For a play set it has just enough to give your imagination a start with a minimal ice cream shop, a beach scene, and a fun little car.
