My daughter adores Dora.
The whole gang actually. Dora, Boots, Isa, Benny, Diego, etc.
If you ask Lizzie what she wants to watch, you can bet it will be either Dora or Diego.
When I heard that Nickelodeon was going to be releasing a new three-DVD box set, Dora the Explorer: Dora Celebrates Three-Pack (Dora’s Christmas / Dora’s Halloween / Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure), I just knew that I wanted it for Lizzie!
The DVD set goes on sale on November 15, 2011 (tomorrow), but Family Friendly Frugality was lucky enough to get a set to review prior to the release date.
Here’s what is included in your 3 DVD box set:
Dora the Explorer: Celebrate with Dora Episode Synopses:
Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Christmas!
A Present for Santa
It’s Christmas Eve! In the spirit of giving, Dora and Boots trek to the North Pole to deliver a present to Santa.
Boots waits for a new toy fire truck to arrive in the mail but when the package arrives, it’s empty! Dora and Boots must travel to the Snowy Mountain to recover the gift before Swiper the sneaky fox finds it.
Dora and Boots save the school pet, a hamster named Mimo, who goes missing from his cage.
Dora and Boots are coloring a picture of Mami Duck and her eggs when the coloring book suddenly comes to life. The eggs start the hatch and the wind blows one of them away. Dora and Boots must jump into the coloring book to bring the newly hatched Baby Duck back home to Mami.
Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Halloween
It’s Halloween! Dora and Boots are trick-or-treating when a cute Little Monster surprises them. They help Little Monster hurry home before the big clock strikes 12.
The Missing Piece
Dora and Boots meet a wizard, El Encantador, who is missing his magic wand. They set off to find El Encantador’s wand so that he can perform his magic.
To the Monkey Bars
Dora has never been able to climb all the way across the monkey bars. Dora and Boots set off for Play Park so that Dora can give it another try.
The Big Storm
A big storm cloud is coming. Dora and Boots have to warn all their friends in the forest to get home before it starts raining.
Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure
Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure (Double Length Episode)
Happy Birthday, Dora! In the final episode of the Magic Storybook Trilogy, Dora and Boots need to get home for Dora’s birthday party with all her family and friends. Before Dora and Boots can jump out of the Magic Storybook, a twisty wind picks them up and blows them into Wizzle World.
Dora Helps the Birthday Wizzle
Dora is reading a storybook about a Birthday Wizzle who could make birthday wishes come true with his magic wand. Today is his birthday so it was his turn to make a wish, but a wind comes in and blows the wand out of the book. Dora must jump into the book and bring the wishing wand back to the Wizzle to give him his birthday wish.
Dora and Boots meet a cute little Wizzle who lost his bag of wishes and can’t get home. They set off in search of the lost wishes, but their friends keep finding the wishes first. Dora and Boots must overcome a giant sunflower in Isa’s garden, a storm of raining nuts in the Nutty Forest and slippery slopes at the Wishing Well in order to return to wishes to their rightful owner.
