DVD Review: Dora the Explorer: Dora Rocks!

Little kids love microphones. Once a small child discovers the secret to speaking in a microphone, they will go out of their way to grab a live microphone and scream louder than Judas Priest’s Rob Halford. You haven’t lived until you’ve had to drag your child away from the microphone during a preschool Christmas concert. Dora the Explorer: Dora Rocks! know exactly how to dazzle a preschool with a tale of a microphone. Benny is having a big party, but he forgets to send out invitations. The only real solution is to have Dora get to the barn early and announce the party over her amazing microphone. This is what happens when because small children and talking animals aren’t allowed on Twitter. There are musical moments in the episode. “Baby Bongo’s Big Music Show” lets Dora and Boots lead a little set of bongos to a big show. “Little Map” features the nephew of Map. Can the wee relative send Dora and Boots on a proper adventure like his big uncle? All three episodes are from season seven. Dora Rocks! kept the kid glued with the music oriented action. Here’s Josie’s take on the collection:

The video is 1.33:1 full frame. The transfer brings out the colorful animation. The audio is Dolby Digital Stereo. You will hear Boots’ eye blink as he stares at you and your child. The episodes are Closed Captioned.

There are no bonus features.

Dora the Explorer: Dora Rocks! lets the educational adventurous girl rock the microphone like a real MC. The three episodes should keep your preschooler preoccupied while in the back of the car. Although they might try to sing as if they have a microphone.

Nickelodeon and Paramount present Dora the Explorer: Dora Rocks!. Starring: Dora the Explorer, Boots the Monkey and Benny. Boxset Content: 3 episodes on 1 DVD. Released: June 4, 2013. Available at Amazon.com.
