I can’t say Emma is as mesmerized by Dora as she is with Gabba or Nemo, but I am happy to report that she is starting to expand her horizons a bit. As she grows and changes, so do her tastes. Thank goodness, because I get tired of watching the same exact movies and episodes over and over!
It pleases me to see her watching Dora accomplish tasks while teaching my daughter problem solving skills and new words in both English and Spanish. I think she has grown to love Dora’s voice to, especially when she’s singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star as she does in the Little Star episode on the Dora the Explorer: Dora's Slumber Party DVD.
Boots’ Cuddly Dinosaur
As bedtime approaches during Dora and Boots’ sleepover, Boots can’t find his cuddly dinosaur. The friends realize that Boots’ dinosaur must have fallen out of his bag at Play Park earlier that day. In their quest to help Boots find his cuddly dinosaur, Dora and friends put baby animals to sleep by singing a Spanish lullaby, help Benny find all of his stuffed animals, soar through the air in a balloon, and make a wish on their friend Little Star. With lots of help, Boots finally finds his cuddly dinosaur at Play Park, just in time for bed.
Every morning Red Rooster must wake the Sun from its deep slumber. Dora and Boots decide to help Red Rooster get to the Highest Hill so he can wake up the Sun. Along the way the friends practice making lots of noise and wake up the frogs, the boat and the pigs. With lots of practice, the friends wake the Sun just in time for morning.
The Lost City
Dora and her friends have lost their most precious toys and will do anything to get them back. The friends discover that toys must go to the Lost City when they are lost, but the city is very hard to find. Dora and Boots embark on an Indiana Jones-like adventure as they race through the Number Pyramid and take a quick shortcut through the Jumbled Jungle. If they find the Lost City, Dora will get back her lost teddy bear, and all her friends will find their favorite lost toys.
As Dora and Boots get ready to make a wish on the first star that appears in the sky, the star falls. It’s now up to Dora and Boots to bring Little Star back home to the Moon, so everyone can make their wish. They will have to take Little Star on a long journey over the Troll Bridge, and past Tico’s Tree to help get the star all the way back into the sky.
Song: “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”
Super Babies' Dream Adventure
As the Super Babies get ready for their nap, the Dream Fairy is nowhere to be found. The Dream Fairy’s Golden Rooster got locked out of the Dream Castle and couldn’t wake her up, so she was still a sleep. The Super Babies decide to wake up the Dream Fairy by embarking on a journey through the Giant’s Forest, up to Dragon Mountain and finally to Dream Castle. When the dream fairy is awoken with her Golden Rooster, she delivers happy naptime dreams for all of the babies.
Dora Had a Little Lamb
Mary had a Little Lamb, but now Little Lamb is lost. Dora and Boots jump into a big book of Nursery Rhymes to bring Little Lamb back to her best friend, Mary. Along the way to Mary’s House, Dora, Boots and Little Lamb pick pickled peppers with Peter Piper; help the Itsy Bitsy Spider climb up the Water Spout; ride a cow over the Moon; put Humpty Dumpty back together again; and even catch a ride in a motorized bath tub.
Dora the Explorer: Dora's Slumber Party will be released on September 14th for around $16.99.
