More About Dora and Friends
Since Dora the Explorer first came on the scene in 2000, she's inspired countless kids with a sense of adventure and the thrill of discovery. Dora is an 8-year-old American girl from a Mexican heritage. What she loves most is going on adventures, and with her monkey companion Boots and her trusty backpack, they are always off doing something new.
One of the elements of the Dora the Explorer show is that she always invites kids to come along with her and take an active role in helping to solve the puzzles - most of which include Spanish language, and basic preschool learning including counting, colors, language skills and more. Of course, they always have to watch out for the wily Swiper, a fox who is always stealing things.
Designed for young preschoolers, they look up to Dora and love her can-do attitude, and she's also very independent, something kids aspire to being. Adventures with Dora model good behavior. She's empathetic and always tries to do the right thing. She's even been known to help out Swiper when it's the right thing to do... even though he sometimes swipes things from her. A lot of the learning focuses on repetition, which is great for the younger kids in the Dora age bracket, and it's not surprising that kids like to watch the same episodes over and over as they master the puzzles.
All of this extends quite naturally into play as children love to mimic the empowered and positive characteristics of Dora. One of the other positive benefits of this show is that it helps establish multi-lingualism (or at least bi-lingualism) as normal in the culture.
Plus, Dora has a lot of fun!
As your little one plays they'll realize that they don't need jungle trek in their backyard to be able to explore with Dora. There's adventure all around them and you'll love seeing them create worlds with their imaginations. With games, toys, and accessories, your munchkin will be using their imagination to create their own journeys and making new discoveries. With so much fun and adventure to be had, even you'll be grabbing your backpack and saying 'Vámonos lets go'!
