Constantine Maroulis, star of Rock of Ages and former finalist on American Idol, joined Fisher-Price, a subsidiary of Mattel, Inc., and Disney Consumer Products to bring down the house at D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. Friday with a rockin’ concert to introduce the new Rock Star Mickey interactive feature plush.
The rocker jammed on stage with Mickey Mouse to show kids and Disney fans classic rock star moves featured in the interactive plush including Rock Star Mickey ‘s signature move, the Mickety-Split.[ Also Visit: Robojit and the Sand Planet - The Story of Future Universe ]
The two have also teamed up for the Rock Star Mickey TV commercial, which is set to air Sept. 6.
“It was awesome to get to rock out with such a beloved, global icon. I know what it takes to get people up on their feet, and Rock Star Mickey really has all the right moves,” said Constantine.
“As a new dad and a musician who loves to rock, I think it’s important to help kids appreciate the magic of music and its impact on their lives. It’s great to see how Rock Star Mickey can get kids rockin’ at an early age.”
Rock Star Mickey, a follow-up to last year’s Dance Star Mickey, gives kids the chance to bring the concert home with them as he lights up the stage with his jammin’ guitar and rockin’ moves.[ Also Read: Knowledge Stories for Children – Ten Tales ]
