Kids go on an exciting adventure in Typelandia with Mickey Mouse and Friends. They begin their adventure in the Village where they discover a mysterious enchantment has befallen Typelandia. Kids must learn all the keys on the keyboard as they travel through Typelandia to free Mickey’s friends from the enchantment. The first stop is the garden where they discover Daisy transformed into a shrub. By learning to master the first set of keys, a, s, l, and ; they will help free her. To do so, they take a typing lesson, complete a challenge, and reinforce their new skills by playing a game. Upon passing a test, Daisy is free and back to herself! Mickey’s Typing Adventure is packed with so much fun and motivation, kids forget they are learning to type. “Boring” is not a word you’ll hear as kids continue their Adventure in each charming location, including The Cottage, The Wishing Well, The Big Tree, The Mine, and finally the Palace! Mickey’s Typing Adventure is the perfect typing solution for parents, too, as kids will not need help as they are guided step-by-step by the Shop Keeper who travels with them in a crystal ball. He helps kids progress through the Adventure using just the keys they have learned.
Packed with Motivation
Kids are motivated to learn new keys, pass typing tests and complete challenges to free Mickey and his friends from the enchantment. After completing typing activities throughout Typelandia, the ultimate reward is reaching the Palace.

The Palace is a fun place with more adventures, activities, and challenging games – complete with a colorful Fair!
