Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this anniversary special is identical in style to the popular, now 10-year-old series, so existing fans are sure to enjoy the festivities. Dora's bilingual style introduces kids to common Spanish words and phrases, and the show's use of repetition ensures that viewers will retain at least some of what's said. The Dora franchise boasts a marketing conglomerate that includes books, videos, games, and toys, so tuning in might pique kids' interest in similar add-ons. What's more, the movie includes flashback clips of Dora's past specials, so young fans may want to fill in the blanks of their own Dora repertoire after seeing these virtual commercials.
