Nickelodeon releases yet another small collection of adventures of the family favorite Dora the explorer on DVD with Dora’s Magical Sleepover, a disc featuring three episodes of the hit Nick Jr. series that’s sure to everything but make children tired.
Things kick off in “Dora’s Museum Sleepover Adventure”, that has Dora, Boots, and Diego having a sleepover at their local museum. Of course it’s not long before they go exploring some of the paintings there and the magical worlds inside them. While doing so, they run into Prince Miguel who has been turned into a lion and needs a magic cape to break the spell. As always, it’s up to viewers to help Dora and the gang to solve puzzles and find the magic cape. Then in “Dora’s and Sparky’s Riding Adventure” Sparky the horse isn’t feeling too well, so Dora decides to help make Sparky feel better by getting him back to the barn. Of course there’s obstacles and Swiper the fox she’ll have to make her way past to get there. To help celebrate the current FIFA madness, “Dora’s Super Soccer Showdown” has Dora and her Golden Explorers soccer team take on a team of monsters in the big cup tournament in Brazil.
As with all the previous Dora releases, Nickelodeon has done a fine job picking a nice collection of episodes while also doing great with the transfer onto DVD. I thought the three episodes here were fun and are sure to keep kids entertained and excited while learning problem solving skills, languages and more. With this DVD running at just a little over an hour, you would think some extras or special features would have been included. Despite the lack of these, the disc still has plenty of fun for families to enjoy anytime they pop it in.
Dora’s Magical Sleepover DVD is a nice little collection of episodes from the series that’s sure to make the perfect disc to have for car trips and family time at home. While it would’ve been nice to have some extras to keep kids entertained after the episodes end, the ones chosen on here still have plenty of learning fun to make up for the lack of extras, which is sure to keep viewers watching while solving puzzles the Dora way.
