Celebrating 90 years of Mickey Mouse with LEGO DUPLO

LEGO DUPLO has released a special slideshow celebration of Disney’s Mickey Mouse to celebrate his 90th birthday.

Teaming up with Disney fansite the Laughing Place, the LEGO Group has produced a special slideshow celebrating 90 years of Mickey Mouse. Using LEGO DUPLO products, a selection of important milestones in the life of Mickey and Minnie Mouse are chronicled.

Back in 1928, the character first arrived on the screen in Steamboat Willie, since then having gone on to become the mascot for Disney. Appearing in countless animated shorts, as part of many theme park attractions and on innumerable t-shirts, Mickey Mouse is a cultural figure like few others.

Recently, 41624 Mickey Mouse and 41625 Minnie Mouse were released in the LEGO BrickHeadz theme, allowing fans a little too old for DUPLO to be able to enjoy the most iconic Disney characters of them all. The duo can also be found in 71040 Disney Castle.
Fans of both LEGO and Disney are hoping that Steamboat Willie proves successful in the next LEGO Ideas review – and it would certainly be topical, given the character’s birthday celebrations.
