Everyone has a favourite kids show and some stick in your mind for life. For me it was Dora the Explorer LogoChoc-a-block and Finger Mouse, but for kids these days it is likely to be Dora the Explorer. I remember watching when B was about 3 years old and now it’s come round again as H is starting to interact with the show, so I was so excited when I heard about what Nick Jr have in store for Dora fans this month!
Dora’s Enchanted Forest Adventures is a three part special which sees Dora travelling to a magical world ruled by a unicorn king. All is not well in the kingdom though, so Dora and her friends have to be brave, kind, smart and strong to restore peace in the kingdom. With Elves, Fairies and Unicorns it is set to be a magical adventure for all!
Dora in Enchanted Forest dress (2)I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of the DVD and I have to say it is fantastic. The first two episodes are the usual half hour, with an hour long finale. This is great because H won’t sit through a film yet, but she can watch each episode independently without me feeling mean turning it off when she gets bored!
Dora really is one of those feel good adventure kids shows that is educational too. I’m not sure if we went to Spain H would need to shout that she has seen a “Unicornio” but she’s actually picked up some of the punctuation really well!!
In true Nick Jr fashion, if you miss it the first time you can catch it again, but the three part special premiers on Tuesday 8th November at 4.30pm, followed by part two on Wednesday 9th at 4.30pm and concluding with the hour special on Thursday 10th November, again at 4:30pm. Not only is it guaranteed to catch your kids imagination but it will keep them out of trouble while tea is being cooked!! Each episode is repeated at 6:30pm too, so if 4:30pm doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t matter!
