OUR THOUGHTS: This DVD showed up at the right time! Teagan is celebrating her birthday in a few weeks and she is a huge fan of BIRTHDAY PARTIES!
This video is fun, encouraging and sweet! The DVD has a cute pop up in the cover and comes with a sticker sheet. Teagan loves to sing along to the songs and I love that Dora speaks in English and Spanish!
The birthday balloon reveals that it’s DORA’s birthday! She celebrates with her family and friends but before she does she goes on adventure Dora style! Help Dora find her way home to celebrate her birthday! Dora and Boots wind in a Twisty Wind Cloud and land in Wizzle World. That’s when her adventure begins! Watch out for La Bruja, she’ll try to stop Dora from getting her wish, to make it home for her birthday party. I’m assuming this video is based on Wizard of Oz. Dora meets the Wizzles (munchkins), goes over the rainbow, plus wicked witch and flying monkeys served up Nickelodeon style.
Nickelodeon does a great job integrating languages and exploring lessons that are important for young children. Interactive lessons get kids off their feet for some lively singing, dancing and jumping!
You know a DVD is a hit with Teagan when she wants to watch it over and over. Teagan is engaged throughout the entire DVD and loves to retell the story her style! Happy Birthday to Dora The Explorer! – Tee and Teagan.
