Dora the Explorer, created by Chris Gifford, Valerie Walsh Valdes and Eric Weiner, is a play-along, animated adventure series starring Dora, a seven-year-old Latina heroine whose adventures take place in an imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches and rainforests. She explores her world just as preschoolers do every day, and the show is designed to actively engage its audience in an interactive quest using a variety of learning techniques.
In every episode, Dora and Boots invite the audience to participate in an exciting adventure, where each step of their journey consists of a problem or puzzle that Dora and the audience must think their way through in order to solve the next problem. Dora is proudly bilingual and uses her knowledge of English and Spanish to communicate with her friends, overcome obstacles and reach her goals. In each episode, Dora teaches Spanish words or phrases to the viewers and then asks them to use it to solve a problem and forge ahead. Ultimately, Dora and her best friend, Boots, triumph, and the story always ends with a “We Did It!” anthem.
I can honestly say I was just as excited to watch this Dora adventure as Abby was! I love when the adventures are fairy tale and story book based, it’s so much fun seeing the stories told in such a different way. And, of course, I really love that it’s based off of Alice in Wonderland which happens to be one of my favorites. We love this new Dora adventure and Abby especially enjoys having tea parties with all her dolls while we watch it. She loves interacting with Dora, helping to point out the way and yes, she even answers Dora’s questions. I’ve even noticed Abby picking up a few Spanish words! Dora the Explorer is definitely a great show for preschoolers and one that I happily let Abby enjoy.
Now for the fun part!
