This box-set is full of all my kids’ favorite characters from Dora the Explorer including Boots, Tico, & Swiper. Of course my girls love the 3 episodes that involve princesses and castles which also happen to be Double length episodes! That isn’t to say that they didn’t enjoy the other episodes though….because they love watching them all! I love Dora DVD’s because they capture my sons attention. He will sit with his sisters and watch an episode or two, and that gives me a break from having to entertain him myself .
Things that are BRAG WORTHY:
- Fun for both girls and boys
- Has princess characters for your ‘princess-loving’ girls
- Uses English & Spanish for learning fun
- Storylines that encourage children to get involved.
