My two youngest grand children are huge fans of Dora the Explorer. Especially my grandson, KeShawn, who wants to watch Dora over and over again. I love that they can learn valuable lessons while being so entertained. The latest DVD Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom is no exception. The episode “Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom” is a great lesson in what can happen when little ones get separated from their parents. Like most little girls my grand daughter is wild about mermaids, making this DVD a big hit!
Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom (SRP $16.99) was released to DVD on June 26, 2012. Nickelodeon invites kids to join Dora and Boots on an exciting aquatic adventure, featuring Latina superstar Thalia as the voice of a mermaid. Included episodes:
Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom
Dora and Boots are at the beach when they find Maribel, a little lost mermaid, who needs to get back to her mommy (voiced by Thalia) in the Mermaid Kingdom. Dora uses her mermaid charm necklace to transform into a mermaid and turn Boots into a sea monkey. Together the three set off on an underwater adventure through the octopus’s garden, past the ocean rocks to Mermaid Cove where Maribel will have to sing to bring all the mermaids together so she can find her mommy.
Benny the Castaway
Dora and Boots are getting ready to have a beach picnic with all of their friends when suddenly a bottle rolls in with a wave. Inside the bottle, Dora and Boots find a note from Benny. His balloon ran out of air on the way to the picnic and he’s stuck on Coconut Island. It’s Dora and Boots to the rescue!
Dora’s Moonlight Adventure
Dora’s taking care of Abuela’s three kitties: Pico, Mónica and Lucky. At Dora’s house, Mami reads Dora and the kitties a story and they all cuddle around their ball of string and fall asleep. When the ball of string rolls out the window and Lucky chases after it, the kitties wake Dora up so she can help find Lucky.
