Dora’s Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure: Dora and Boots are practicing for the Fantastic Gymnastics Show when Dora gets a special delivery – a beautiful rainbow ribbon.

But Swiper comes in and steals the ribbon soDora and Boots set out on an adventure to get the ribbon back in time for the show.
A Ribbon for Pinto: Pinto is really excited about the Big Horse Show and he’d like to win his very first blue prize ribbon. Dora, Boots, and Pinto are taking a train to the show, but the train breaks down and they worry they won’t be able to make it!
Swiper’s Favorite Things: Swiper is packing all of his favorite things for a sleepover at his Grandma’s House — his pajama trunk, his favorite puppy book, and his very special funny bunny. Just as he is about to leave, a big wind gust comes in and blows everything away! Dora and Swiper journey to Crocodile Lake, through the Jumbled Trees, and race to Strawberry Hill to get Swiper’s favorite things back.
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.
With the Summer Olympics just a week away, our family is super excited about gymnastics right now! The older girls are taking tumbling classes and we just got a Fantastic Gymnastics Dora Doll for 3 year old Tati. Like other episodes of Dora the Explorer, these three fun episodes have Dora and her friends solving problems and overcoming obstacles. Watching Dora is a great way for toddlers and pre-schoolers to learn how to follow directions, problem solve and a even learn a bit of Spanish. Both Tati and her almost 2 year old brother love watching Dora the Explorer. Dora’s Fantastic Gymnastics Adventure includes 3 episodes that we haven’t seen before and they have been so fun to watch!
