Nickelodeon kicks off their upcoming fall lineup of DVD releases with an all-new adventure starring Dora and her friends with Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Great Roller Skate Adventure. , a single episode featuring the world’s most popular preteen explorer. Here Dora and Boots decide to head to the skate park where they can have fun, but their plans get placed on hold when they encounter the bullying Big Wheeler who shuts the park down with their bullying.

As with all of her adventures, it’s up to viewers to help her overcome the bully and make the park fun again by helping Dora solve puzzles while also learning some spanish and problem solving skills along the way.

I thought the episode was pretty great, and that Nickelodeon did a great job presenting the adventure on DVD, as the video and audio quality are spot-on. I was really surprised that it is shown in widescreen, as most of the previous releases were fullscreen. While there isn’t any special features, two bonus episodes are included to bring the entire DVD running time to a little over an hour of Dora fun. The first bonus episode titled “Check-Up Day” has Dora and Boots visiting Dr. Valdés for her yearly check-up. They also come across a few friends along the way who need to see the doctor as well. The second bonus episode “School Science Fair” follows Dora and her friend Emma who decide to make a volcano for the annual Green Power Science Fair at their school. Here they’ll need help solving all kinds of puzzles and problems, as well as getting past Swiper to get their project to the school in time.

Those who enjoy Dora or great children shows in general are bound to like the Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Great Roller Skate Adventure DVD. A brand-new adventure awaits Dora fans here, and what it lacks in special features is more than made up for with plenty of puzzle solving fun and bonus episodes that help create a well-rounded package that younger viewers are sure to enjoy.
