Mickey Mouse DVD Giveaway

UPDATED: We have a winner! Jaxim is the winner of the random drawing for the Mickey’s Treat DVD. Thanks so much to all of you for entering the drawing. I’m posting a Disney Princess Enchanted Tales Follow Your Dreams DVD drawing on Thursday so be sure to stop back by.

I was thrilled to be asked to review the new Mickey’s Treat Halloween Fun DVD as both my girls, especially Miss A, love the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show on the Disney Channel. This DVD has been a huge hit with the girls and it’s fun to see them enjoy a pimped out version of an old classic.

Now for the fun part. I have a giveaway copy of this DVD, which includes a bonus Halloween episode of Little Einsteins. This would be a great Halloween gift of the non tooth rotting variety!


For an entry into the drawing (one entry per person), comment on this post and tell me what your favorite all-time childhood Halloween costume was. My favorite costume growing up was a witch. I’m sure this has no reflection on how I turned out as an adult. I also recall a Woody Woodpecker costume (GAH remember that show you 1970s children?!) and raiding my mom’s costume jewelry so I could be a gypsy.

I’ll draw a random winner from the comments received by midnight Sunday. You don’t have to be a blogger to enter the drawing, but you do need to leave a valid e-mail address. I’m going to take a small blog break, but will be back on Monday to update this post and announce the winner. Good luck!

I have a Disney Princess Tales: Follow Your Dreams DVD giveaway coming up next Thursday, so stop by then!

p.s. Disney features some great online clips for kids from the Mickey’s Treat DVD. Check them out here. And check out the fun online activities (always good to bookmark for rainy days). You can read more about the DVD, or purchase it, here.

    When i was about 7 years old i have a blue cares bears costume. I was absolutely in love with it and the holiday its self that i went trick or treating till i was 16 and now i still get to do it with m kids.

  2. Nichole says:

    I only dressed up for Halloween a few times when I was growing up (we lived way out in the country), and I never had any spectacular costumes.

    My 5-year-old nephew, however, was Johnny Cash last year. By far, the best childhood costume I’ve ever witnessed.

  3. Nap Warden says:

    I remember when I was six, my mom made a kitty costume for me. My best friend went as a puppy. We went to a festival in costume and chased each other around the entire time…I swear we never stopped. I lost touch with that friend (Jay Owens where are you?). That is still a great Halloween memory!

  4. Lindley says:

    There were 4 kids in my family so most of my costumes were of the homemade and recycled variety so our family favorite costume was the red Crayola crayon complete with pointy red felt hat!

  5. kailani says:

    My favorite costume from my childhood was a bunny. Well, I don’t know if it’s my favorite but it’s the only one I can remember. hee hee

  6. Emily says:

    I was never really what I wanted to be growing up (princess or fairy) – I was a monster one year (not my idea), a late 80s small town Alabama idea of a punk rocker (can you say last minute) and I did the gypsy too. My mom did make a really good clown costume for me one year. Clowns kinda freak me out, but I was only about 4 or 5. I remember my cousin and I went trick or treating in my neighborhod, and one of the houses always did these awesome decorations.

    I finally got to be a fairy on Halloween at a friend’s party in college when I was 19. My two friends and I went as the 3 fairies from Sleeping Beauty (but “hot” – did I mention we were 19?). We bought wings, wands and crowns and glitter and glue and decorated the wings and wands with our signature color of glitter (I was red). We had a lot of fun being so girly at the tail end of adolescence…

    Mickey ruleth!

    Don’t forget that technically I need you to just mention your favorite Halloween costume as a child growing up in order to get an entry.

    I’m going to be out of town and I know that I have a moody spam eradicator program so if your comment is accidentally marked spam, I promise I’ll fix it Sunday night.

  8. DBN says:

    I am really having difficulty remembering a specific costume! What is bad is that I remember my mom working really hard on them, but I can not remember a favorite. Please don’t tell her!
    I do remember that she had a giant pumpkin costume made for me, and that I liked that one.
    (Wow, I Am Lame.)

  9. Jaxim says:

    I have a few favorites. The one on the top of my head is from 1st grade when I dressed up as a young George Washington. I wore a women’s brunette wig and put a pony tail in it which made it look colonial. Then I wore a tri-corner hat and shoes with buckles. I looked like I just chopped down a cherry tree.

    My other favorite costume was when my Mom made me a white Buck Roger’s costume based on the show that was a huge hit during that time in the late 70s/early 80s.

  10. Blonde Mom says:

    I don’t really remember spending money on costumes, either. Do ya’ll? The only costume that I recall being a true store bought one was my Woody Woodpecker one from about 1975. Ha! The rest were just sort of piecemealed from my mom’s and sister’s closets!

  11. Mrs.M says:

    Growing up I thought it was the ugly el cheapo barbie costume with pastic wrap around dress and suffocating plastic face mask. We were rather poor and store bought items were rare. However I look back now and realize all the great and very cure costumes I had that my family made and helped me create. There was a great majorette costume that my mom found at a garage sale. There were even boots with pom poms on them and I had a baton! Then there were the little cat costumes my grandma made me out of hand-me-down leotards and fun material she had leftover from quilts, etc. It’s hard to pick just one fave. Right now I wish I still had any of them to show or give to my kids. Actually–I’d probably make them wear them!

  12. Ellen says:

    A clown.

    My mom always made our costumes, and this particular clown costume was great, and long-lasting. When we were 2, it just had lots of puffed out extra fabric. As we got taller, the costume just got narrower. It was probably used from when I was 2 until when my brother was 5, 8 years!

    Unfortunately later we moved to upstate NY and had to wear our winter coats and hats under all our costumes. So then we were a fat clown, a fat princess, a fat witch, a fat Ninja Turtle, etc.

  13. JamiL says:

    My favorite was when my sister and I dressed up like Alice in Wonderland and the white rabbit. It is so great to be a kid. Sometimes I wish I could go back for a minute! Thanks for the contest!!!

  14. Jill says:

    Oh gosh – I’ve had a hard time deciding my favorite. I think I’ll go with a gypsy. I wore one of my mom’s old dresses with lots of belts, necklaces and the biggest pair of clip-on earrings you ever saw. I remember they killed my ears, but I refused to take them off until I got home from tick-or-treating.

  15. Amy says:

    I remember being Raggedy Ann! Very fun! And my daughter’s favorite movie was The Wizard of Oz, so she’s was Dorothy 3 years in a row!

  16. Amy says:

    I loved my witch costume, until my mother decided to make me an “ugly” witch. I wanted to be a beautiful witch, like Glenda. She also had great ideas when I was younger to dress me in a brown paper sack and call me a sad sack.

  17. Lin says:

    I grew up where it was usually snowing by Halloween, so don’t remember too many great costumes (they were all covered by parkas by the time we went trick-or-treating). I do remember dressing up like a “hobo” (how embarassingly non-PC) one year to take my baby brother trick-ro-treating, memorable because I drew a mustache on with an eyeliner pencil and wondered if it would come off!

  18. Cheri says:

    My sister, cousin, and I used to dress up like babies! That was the fad back then. I have two young children, and we just went to Disneyworld in August! It was a first time for all of us! I would love the dvd!

  19. Linda SS says:

    The one that I remember the most was when I was a pioneer woman. I wore a bonnet that belonged to my great grandmother. I was on the TV news that night wearing my costume.

  20. Melissa Markham says:

    When I was 8, my mom dressed me up as an Indian girl. I had long hair which she put in two braids, she took an old hunting vest and fringed the bottom and I owned a dress that looked ‘Indiany’. I won first place at a costume contest:)

  21. Doreen says:

    Ohhh I was always dressed up as witch and even won a Costume contest once for it!! LOL However, I think my fav Costume was being Punky Brewster because it was a lot of fun being dressed up all funky! 🙂 Would love to win this awesome DVD!!!

  22. Suprina says:

    Oh wow, Let see I can remember a few….

    My cousin and I once dressed up as Glenda The good witch and the Wicked Witch from Wizard of Ozzz. I was the good witch, since my mom wouldn’t let me be the evil witch.

    One I can really remember that I enjoyed being was a HOBO clown and then as I got older my mom actually let me be a bar maid????

  23. Jana says:

    My favorite costume was a gypsy. I was four years old and it was the first time I wore makeup. I remember that I loved the pretend mole my mom created.

  24. Caryn says:

    I would love to win! I have a little boy! My favorite costume was when I dressed up as a 70’s girl. The reason? That was the night I met my husband! : )

  25. Keely Brock says:

    My all-time favorite costume was my homemade Annie costume complete with the bushy, red wig. I remember feeling like I was truly little-orphan Annie.

  26. lace says:

    My favorite costume was a punk rocker. I think I dressed up as a punk rocker at least 3 times. The other times I dressed up as a gymnast.

  27. Charla says:

    I dressed as a ghost and a witch most often, but I remember one halloween I dressed as Kermit the Frog – with hand-dyed green tights and hoodie (with two half circle styrofoam “eyes” glued to the top of the hood). We had to slightly stuff the hoodie to get that kermit look. I guess I have a very creative mom!

    I also have 2 kids who are very into Micky and Little Einsteins. Great giveaway!

  28. amanda strief says:

    my favorite was the witch to and i liked it cause my mom would get me fake nails to wear for halloween and my son loves mickey mouse and i if i could have found a mickey mouse costume i could afford i would have bought it for him but of course i couldnt afford one.
