Kolbe is terrified of this toy. It lives in John Paul's room, preferably in the toy chest and Kolbe still stops when he gets to the top of the stairs and with a frightened look repeats his name. He has refused to even go in John Paul's room all week because this is where Mickey lives. Even after he was out of sight and I repeatedly told him that "Mickey was gone."
In his defense, this Mickey does sing and dance when you squeeze his nose. The end of the song includes a pretty "wicked" laugh (think "EH HEEHEEHEEHEE").
As his protection he has taken to carrying an elephant as big as he is. Seems wise...
