The picture is taken to look like everyone getting together to snap a photo after a fun volleyball game.”
“Another thing I wanted was for Mickey Mouse to be playing volleyball. He’s someone loved by people around the world. He’s doing a blocking pose. (He looks happy, like he’s saying, ‘I did it!’).”
“Both types capture the fun you can have in volleyball, so I really like them!”
