Dora is a little Hispanic girl with who goes on adventures with her red boot wearing monkey, conveniently named Boots. During her adventures we also get to meet her talking backpack (or la mochila) and the map who sings an annoyingly cute song. The show plays out almost like a computer adventure showing a mouse on different scenes where the kids make a decision. Dora asks your kids questions and then waits for a response. Dora would then congratulate your child for trying, while replying back with the correct answer to encourage them. The main purpose of the show is to teach Spanish to English-speaking children.

User Reviews

Really great show
5 January 2005 | by hewlett74See all my reviews

I have a 2 year old who is half Peruvian on her father's side and Canadian/American on my side. I would just like to say that most of the cartoons out there are way too difficult for a toddler her age to understand. Even too hard for a grown up half the time. Finally one comes along that is teaching Spanish I was happy about this. I bought most of the Dora DVD's my toddler loves them she even goes around reciting dialogue in Spanish and English from the show. She's going to french school so she will be trilingual in the future. Thank-you Dora for giving her a head start in basic Spanish. P.S The voice of Dora is done by a 13 year old who's parents are from Peru so there is a connection for my daughter.To those criticising the show go watch "Law and Order" not some cartoon at your ages. Haha.
