Dora The Explorer | Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom DVD Review

Title: Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom

When we travel for our summer road trip, I like to have family friendly shows for the children to enjoy. Dora the Explorer episodes have always been very popular with my children and I like that the show is entertaining as well as engaging and educational for younger kids.

Dora The Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom is a fun addition to our collection of Dora titles. This is a brand new DVD release that features Dora and her zany friends including Boots. Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom transforms Dora into mermaid and Boots becomes a sea monkey (so cute) as they enjoy an undersea adventure with their new friend, the lost mermaid Maribel. Will Maribel be able to find her mommy by singing and bringing all the mermaids together? My children were glued to their seats solving the problem and puzzles that come up during each episode and they jumped up with excitement when Maribel ultimately finds her mom. It was a great way for us to talk about what can happen if my children ever get separated from me.

There are also two bonus episodes including Benny the Castaway and Dora’s Moonlight Adventure. Dora The Explorer: Dora’s Rescue in Mermaid Kingdom is available on DVD from Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Media Distribution. It is a fun title for the summer and my children requested that it be packed in our road trip titles to watch again when we leave for our upcoming vacation.
