Review: Dora's Royal Rescue DVD

My kids literally have like 10 Dora DVDs. They used to have more, but I thought it was getting a little excessive. My kids are Dora fiends. Most kids I know are Dora fiends. There is just something about Dora that makes her appeal to every child. As a parent, I love her upbeat attitude, and the fact that she teaches kids everything from Spanish to counting to colors to shapes. It helps them use their memory and critical thinking. My son is 2 and I will hear Dora ask a question and he answers her. It's mind boggling and I love it!

Dora is a little girl who likes to go exploring. She uses a map to tell her where to go, has a pet Monkey friend named Boots who goes along with her and then there's Swiper the Fox, who likes to steal things and hide them from Dora.

Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Royal Rescue Episode Synopses:

Dora’s Royal Rescue: Join Lady Knight Dora in a double-length adventure, as she and her faithful squire Boots embark on a noble quest to help Rocinante the Horse save his knight, Don Quixote (voiced by Andy Garcia), who has been locked in Story Castle by the mean Malambruno (voiced by Placido Domingo)! They must dance past a giant spider and overcome windmills to rescue Don Quixote.

Dora’s Knighthood Adventure!: Dora, Boots, Rocinante the horse, and Dapple the donkey go on a heroic adventure to rescue a princess so they can become knights just like Don Quixote (voiced by Andy Garcia).


Family Time Factor:  As an adult, I find it tolerable to listen to while I'm cleaning or Facebooking or what not, but I'd never sit an watch it.  In terms of kids, I'd say 2-6.

MOTR Grade: A-

Dora's Royal Rescue is available on DVD October 2nd!!!
