We recently received an advanced copy of a new Dora the Explorer DVD, Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom, which will be released on June 26, 2012.
Nickelodeon invites kids to join Dora and Boots on an exciting aquatic adventure in the brand-new DVD featuring Latina superstar Thalia as the voice of a mermaid. The DVD features the title episode and additional episodes from Dora the Explorer’s current seventh season.” Emmy Award-winning Dora the Explorer is an international phenomenon and one of the top preschool shows on TV after almost 12 years on the air.
The DVD features three 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.
This is really the first time Sawyer has sat down to watch Dora. We don’t currently have the Nickelodeon channel nor does he have any of her DVD’s. However, he seemed to be interested in this DVD, especially the Mermaid Kingdom episode. He really liked the underwater setting of the story. This is definitely a DVD that we will continue to watch!
