Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this collection of three distinct Dora stories fits right into the kind of cheerful, positive material we expect from the ubiquitious bilingual girl and her animal friends. Dora and friends fight selfishness with cooperation, and encourage young viewers to participate in the process by speaking or moving along with the characters on the screen. The show encourages kids to repeat words or phrases, sometimes loudly, in the process of teaching Spanish words and phrases. Children will be subtly exposed to the concept of an onscreen cursor and the click sound that accompanies a selection. The main story has also been converted into a Wii game for preschoolers.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Dora encounters situations which might initially seem scary -- like volcanos or dragons -- but very quickly become harmless.


A fox is called "stinky" in a rare name-calling incident.

Social Behavior

The main feature teaches that some things are for everyone to share -- like the colors of the kingdom. These lessons can easily translate into messages about taking care of the environment, being good library users, and generally thinking about others.


The image of Dora is on everything imaginable and kids will want to parents to buy these things. This particular feature was also made into a Wii game.
