Minnie: Helping Hearts
by Joyce Kessel
What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day, than by celebrating with Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck?!
The Happy Helpers are on their way! When their friends need help, these two BFFs are at the ready! As the Happy Helpers from Mickey and the Roadster Racers, Minnie and Daisy can complete any task at hand, whether they are babysitters, personal assistants, or cruise ship directors leading the Valentine’s Day dance contest! Every day is an exciting new adventure and you can always count on the Happy Helpers to show up with happy hearts and helping hands!
With a whopping EIGHT episodes and a running time of about 96 minutes total, Disney Junior Minnie Helping Hearts is loaded with lots of fun that will keep your little ones (and maybe you!) entertained.
The first episode, “The Happiest Helper Cruises”, introduces Minnie and Daisy as cruise ship directors and they lead the Valentine’s Day dance contest, along with helping their friends complete the tasks at hand.
The fun continues with The Big Broadcast, Adventure in Buddysitting, Lights! Camera! Help!, Grandpa Beagle’s Day Out, Artful Helpers, Cuckoo La-La, and Figaro’s new friend.
All the episodes were fun, but my favorite episode was Adventures in Buddysitting. The play center was closed so Minnie and Daisy extended their helping hands to care for their friends children. Buddy was new to town and did not any friends, so they attempted to welcome him and introduce him to new friends. When Daisy thought Buddy escaped, she mistakenly ran after the squirrel in the chicken suit. Meanwhile, the happy helpers helped Buddy overcome his shyness and make new friends.

* The Happiest Helpers Cruise!
