The first time we left Disney, my kids couldn’t get their hands on enough memorabilia. Everything had to have black ears and red and white polka dots.
My younger daughter, Rebecca, has always been a particularly huge fan of Minnie Mouse.
When Rebecca was two years old, she had a red and white polka dot Minnie Mouse costume that she wore almost every day for about three months. The only time she wasn’t wearing it was when I decided it needed to be washed. I think she even wore it to bed a lot of the time!
(Incidentally, things haven’t changed much over the years. Today Rebecca is a teenager and she owns both a huge stuffed Minnie, at least one Minnie Mouse t-shirt, and a Minnie Mouse pillow pal.)
So when I went searching for the best Minnie Mouse toys (which was pretty fun, by the way, I kept imagining what a Little Rebecca would have thought of them.
If you’re curious (or in a hurry):
✅ Minnie Mouse Ride-On Toys
When my oldest daughter, Rachael, had just turned two, we were reading a picture book together that had a photo of a little girl sitting on a “Big Wheels” style tricycle.
“Motorcyle!” Rachael exclaimed, pointing at the photo. “I wanna motorcycle for Christmas!”
So of course she got her first toddler “motorcycle” that Christmas. And of course she loved it.
Here are some great Minnie Mouse ride-on toys for little girls who are eager to “hit the road.”
This ride on airplane is for toddlers about 1-3 years old. It comes with a handle, so if your little one is too small to push herself yet, you can push her around while she sets her feet on the airplane wings. (However, the handle is a little on the short, so be prepared to have to bend down if you do this.)
The airplane has moving propellers that light up, a seat that opens up for toy storage, and even a little shape sorter with four plastic blocks in the back. Oh, and there is a plastic wedge behind the back wheel so your child doesn’t flip backwards while riding. It’s a very cleverly-designed toy.
If you’re about my age, you probably think of Big Wheels as the ride on toy. It is recommended for ages 3 – 8 years old and has a weight limit of 70 pounds. There are three different positions for the seat, so you can adjust it over the years. All the tools needed for assembly are included.
While this toy is super-cute and several people gave it 5-star reviews, calling it “an absolute hit,” there were plenty of people who did NOT like this toy at all and gave it only 1 star.
Girls ages 12-36 months will love this pink, purple, and white buggy. It has a horn to honk, a steering wheel to turn (although it doesn’t actually steer the vehicle), and a dial that turns to make different sounds, such as a revving engine.
This toy can be used as a walker as well as a ride-on. It’s designed so that it won’t tip over when a toddler pushes it from behind.
One thing I really like about this toy is that there is storage space under the seat. Little girls can pack it with snacks, a favorite stuffed animal, and/or a book before they go on a little trip!
It’s worth noting that a few reviewers thought this toy was too small, so be sure to double-check the dimensions (19.6 x 9.5 x 18.5 inches) to see if it’s right for you.
✅ Minnie Play Kitchen Toys
My two girls loved to play in the kitchen when they were little. I remember them setting up their own “restaurant,” hanging up a sign, writing up little menus (with many misspelled words), then greeting us and leading us to our seats once the restaurant was open. They would take our drink offers, then tell us what the specials on the menu were.
One thing they loved to do when they were even younger was … hmm, they had a name for it, but right now I can’t remember what it was. But I would set them up with a bowl and spoons in the kitchen and give them ingredients they could use. They might be things I didn’t use often and could spare, like apple cider vinegar, or some condiments that were about to expire. Or maybe I would just give them something fun, like what was left in the jar of peanut butter. They were to free to mix it all up in any way they liked … and they LOVED it!
There are plenty of opportunities for girls to play pretend with food and kitchen toys without having them make a mess. I searched for the most creative, fun, and highly-rated Minnie Mouse kitchen toys and found these six.
This vintage-style kitchen playset is just beautiful and perfect if you’re looking for something that has more of a “classic and sturdy” look rather than a more “cutesy toy” look.
It stands just over three feet tall and has heart-shaped oven and cabinet doors that open and close. A red and white polka dot curtain hangs over the sink and stove area, a Minnie Mouse clock, a drink dispenser on the fridge … and even a cordless phone! How cute can you get?
The one downside to this set is that it’s a bit of a pain to assemble. Reviewers claimed that the screws were not labeled well and that the instructions were confusing. One person said it took them two and a half hours to put together. Ugh! However, if you’re willing to push past that discomfort, and you’re more handy than I am, it may be worth it for an adorable set that looks like it would last a long time.
This Minnie Mouse cooking play set stands at two feet tall and has a lot of fun stuff going on in it.
It has an oven door that opens and closes, purple polka-dot curtains made of real fabric, an oven mitt, and clicking knobs. As you might expect from a kitchen set, it contains play accessories — over twenty of them! — including cupcakes, a cookie jar with cookies, cups, pancake, a frying pan, and spatula.
But there’s a lot more than just that. The stove burners light up, the faucets make running water sounds, and the ice maker makes ice cubes that are shaped like a bow — how cute is that?
It also has a cake that actually rises as it “bakes,” eggs that crack open, and a coffee pot with “real coffee.”
Yes, this kitchen set is pricey, but it has an awful lot going on, but it will keep toddler girls (and probably even boys!) happy and creative for a long, long time.
Reviewers claimed it was “a breeze” to assemble and only took about twenty minutes. It takes two AA batteries.
This beautiful set of kitchen accessories includes twelve sturdy plastic pieces including a lidded pot, pan, colander, measuring spoons, and a utensil rack with a spatula, whisk, and ladle. The colors are bright and there are cute little details, such as the fact the colander holes are in the shape of Minnie’s head.
For some reason the idea of a Minnie Mouse toy microwave struck me as somewhat funny. I guess it’s the fact that Minnie has been around for decades, and now she’s a modern mouse who doesn’t have time to cook anymore, and instead just sticks stuff in the microwave.
However, I’m quite sure that little girls won’t care about any of that, and will simply love the fact that this microwave lights up and has sound effects, including some “Minnie phrases.” It comes with play food, including a soft pretzel, a bag of popcorn, and a pretend s’more.
You’ve heard of little girls playing “tea party,” of coure. Well, with this set, you can have a “smoothie party.” It comes with a battery-operated toy blender, parfait cups with spoons, pretend ice cubes, and various pretend fruit slices. The blender requires three AA batteries, which are included in the set.
What’s better than cooking like Minnie? Dressing up like Minnie while you do it! My girls were both huge fans of dressing up when they were little, and in fact my younger daughter had a Minnie Mouse costume that she wore for two months straight.
This set includes a polyester pink and white polka dot apron that fits child sizes 4-6, plus a matching spatula.
✅ Minnie Mouse Doll Houses
This house play set is 19 inches tall, has a staircase, and a front door that opens and closes. Some of the 16 accessories include a kitchen table and chairs, oven and refrigerator, bed, desk, couch, and bathtub. It has two mini figures, Minnie Mouse and her cat Figaro, so it’s perfect for two kids to play together.
I wouldn’t think of a doll house (uh, mouse house) to be a battery-operated toy, but this one is, if you want it to be. It says several phrases in Minnie’s voice and the floor lights up with a little bit of music. (It needs 3 AA batteries.)
I’ve always enjoyed toys like this, both as a girl myself and as a parent, because they never get old. You can have the character do all kinds of things, act our stories, and rearrange the furniture in different ways. It’s perfect for imaginative play, either for girls to play alone or with a friend or sibling.
✅ Minnie Mouse Push Cars
At about four and a half inches long, this little car makes a great stocking stuffer and is perfect for older babies and toddlers. It’s small enough for them to carry and easy to push down on Minnie to make the car zoom forward. It works well on both hardwood floors and most carpets. Even if a little girl is too young to get the hang of pushing to make to car go, they still have fun pushing it (or having an adult make it go) until they fully grow into it.
✅ Minnie Mouse Book and Toy Organizers
Now that you have all these great Minnie Mouse toys, where are you going to store them all? These Minnie Mouse toy boxes are soft, colorful, and great for a little girl’s bedroom or playroom.
This purple toy organizer has five fabric storage bins (three small, two medium) and a toy box as a bottom tier. What’s nice about this is that you can separate different types of toys based on size and the smaller toys aren’t as likely to get hidden or buried. There are no sharp edges on any of the bins, which are made up of sturdy fabric with inserts to keep them from caving.
This toy and book organizer is easy to assemble and is 36 inches wide and 30.5 inches high.
What I like about this is the top shelf that holds about 30 books in way that children can easily see them and access them, similar to a book display in a preschool classroom. It’s also a nice area for storing a few stuffed animals. If you’re buying it for a very little girl, the bins work well for storing pull-ups and diapers as well as toys.
