The door gifts we got were simply fabulous. Of course being a craftier, my favourite is the apron (1 for adult and 1 for kiddo). Ethan’s favourite is the water tumbler. The note pad is cute and guess what? We even got to bring home the place mat used during the dinner as it was personalised with our names on it :) How cool is that?
We got posters too.
Ethan, anxiously and happily donning his apron.

What I discovered about Playhouse Disney were

Brand Promise

Lovable Characters: characters kids connect with and get excited about.
Great Storytelling: reflecting Disney quality
Engaging Music: using music to inspire kids to sing, dance and move.
Playful Learning: engaging kids through creative, energetic, interactive play and movement.
Empowering Messages: giving kids the tools to learn life lessons and celebrate their accomplishments
Deliver Disney Difference: connecting to Disney, past, present and future.

Brand Personality

Playhouse Disney is a playful friend, like an older sibling or babysitter. It is also a friend who
communicates in a non-condescending manner.

Target Audience

Kids 2-5 years old, their parents & caregivers

Key Attribute

Based on the ‘Whole Child Curriculum’
– A holistic view towards childhood learning
*Thinking Skills
*Motor Skills
*Early Academic Learning
*Moral & Ethical Development
*Social Skills
*Imagination & Self-expression
*Daily living Skills

We were also briefted on the show format and premise of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Little Einsteins and Special Agent OSO.

Overall, it was a nice outing. We had a nice and cosy ambiance with delicious meal, good company and most of all we had FUN :) It was nicely organised and I can see that they really put in a lot of effort on the setting up of the party as everything was very personalised right from our arrival to the end of our dinner.

Kudos to Playhouse Disney gang for successfully pulling off this great get together. Hop over to their website here.

Thank you :)
