Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom Review & Giveaway


Available on DVD on June 26, 2012

Nickelodeon invites kids to join Dora and Boots on an exciting aquatic adventure in the brand-new DVD, Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom, 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.

Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom Episode Synopses:

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.

Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom is available from Amazon for $14.93.

Mermaids are all the rage right now.  I don’t entirely know why, it’s just one of those things that comes and goes, I guess.  This new Dora DVD is perfect for any mermaid loving little preschoolers.  Dora is fun, educational, and safe.  I am aware that a few parents have lost their patience with this little girl, but I also remember adults having it out for Barney.  Children’s characters can all be annoying at times, but Dora is a great playmate for little children.  Having three boys I can’t say we are big Dora fans, but we do think she’s great!

Nickelodeon has kindly offered one lucky Mama Report reader a Dora the Explorer:  Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom DVD!
