Just a Little More Information:
Dora the Explorer, created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh Valdes, and Eric Weiner, is a play-along, animated adventure series starring Dora, a 7 year old Latina heroine, whose adventures take place in an imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches, and rain forests. She explores her world just as preschoolers do everyday and the show is designed to actively engage the audience in an interactive quest using a variety of learning techniques. In every episode, Dora and Boots invite the audience to come along with each step of the journey, where they might encounter a problem or puzzle to solve. Dora is proudly bilingual and uses her knowledge of both English and Spanish to communicate with her friends and reach her goals. She also teaches the viewers words and phrases in Spanish and ultimately will triumph in the end!

Our Thoughts:
Our package is here!
We are big fans of Dora and have been watching it for a few years now. Not only is she popular at our house, she is popular too many preschoolers too! She and her buddy Boots are great friends who love adventure and this DVD proves just that.
Getting ready to watch Dora and Boots!
Eight episodes of friendly fun
 Dora was very well received by S and her brother was interested in some portions of the episodes as well, I like that it is appropriate for either gender. All of the characters are familiar to us and we enjoy them, even Swiper the Fox (he is pretty silly sometimes). There were many opportunities throughout the DVD to hear and learn new Spanish words, straight from Dora herself. I like that the educational end is a bit different from other Nickelodeon shows. S's favorite episode was Best Friends Day, she loves her friends so much, so she completely could understand why you should celebrate them. With this being a longer running DVD, we have watched it in spurts and is also good for a longer car ride.
I am glad that Nickelodeon offers Dora and promotes it. I feel safe letting my kids watch it, the language and learning is completely appropriate and does offer some educational bits along the way.

  1. Will be taupe alright or more, suitable for just an operating trunk? I am just looking at boots that may be taupe, having a black color, back at the moment and also are unable to choose when it's going to be something that fits plenty of garments choices.
