What It Is
Skate & Spin Dora and Boots from Fisher-Price brings the bilingual skating duo and the skating escapades of the new DVD Dora the Explorer: Dora's Great Roller Skate Adventure to life. The toy features two modes of play: Dance mode, in which Dora and Boots will move in three different preprogrammed dancing patterns with music, and Free Play, in which music plays and kids can skate Dora and Boots around to create their own routine. Once you've chosen your preferred mode of play, press the heart-shaped button on Dora's skate to begin. To move onto a different song simply press Dora's skate again. Boots must be connected to Dora in one of three ways in order to dance: on the back or front of Dora's roller skates to dance in a conga line or by linking their hands.
Is It Fun?
Little Dora the Explorer fans will like listening to the music, dancing along with Dora, and roleplaying scenes from the new movie. We also like that just as in the show, Dora will always repeat phrases in Spanish encouraging young kids to practice their Spanish speaking skills and learn new phrases.
Who It’s For
Skate & Spin Dora and Boots is for ages 3 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The toy requires a smooth, flat surface to operate.
You'll need an extremely large area for skating otherwise the characters will just keep bumping into walls, which takes away from the fun of the toy.
