PRE-SCHOOL MONTH: Mickey Mouse heads out on tour

UK summer campervan tour begins for Playhouse Disney brand.

Playhouse Disney franchise, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, is hitting the road this summer, with the character beginning a tour of the UK this month.

The Clubhouse Campervan will be visiting Disney Stores across the country, plus a number of family-based events in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield, Glasgow, Essex and Newcastle.

Mickey himself will also make an appearance at the Disney Store events and the Bristol Balloon Fiesta in August.

A 'Countdown Challenge' will be running, encouraging parents and children to count together. This will be supported with tips and advice on how parents can make counting fun and entertaining for pre-schoolers.

Boel Ferguson, VP and general manager, Disney Channels UK, said: "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is loved by children and parents all over the world, who embrace its classic characters and make learning a playful experience. We're excited to be bringing the show to life with Mickey's summer campervan tour - we'll be counting down the miles and minutes as Mickey travels to a town near you."
