Guest Review

My two year old is a big Dora fan, so much that she sings “We did it” several times throughout the day.  Since she is a fan of bunnies as well, I thought this DVD would be one that she would thoroughly enjoy.  However, the title episode was not as enjoyable compared to the other two.  In my opinion, she did not enjoy the title episode as much because of the hip-hop styling of the songs; a genre that she is not exposed to. That being said we enjoyed watching the DVD together and she was excited to dance, clap, and interact with the other episodes.  I would recommend this DVD to the parents of other Dora fans, only being leery about the hip-hop overtones, as it introduces a part of Easter in a fun way and the karaoke music videos are a young singer’s dream.

About the Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Easter Adventure DVD

Dora’s Easter Adventure 
Dora and Boots are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Hip-Hop Bunny at Dora’s Easter party. Dora is dressed in her new dress and hat, complimented by Boots in his new bunny ears. Just as the Hip-Hop Bunny begins to approach the party, Swiper appears and swipes his basket full of eggs; tossing it into the forest.  The trio makes their way through a flower garden, a petting zoo and finally to the rainbow river, a hip-hop journey to retrieve Bunny’s basket.

The Grumpy Old Troll Gets Married 
The Grumpy Old Troll is not grumpy today; in fact he is doing his happy dance. He along with Dora, Boots and others are at his wedding party waiting for it to begin.  The Grumpy Old Troll realizes that he has forgotten to pick up the rings from his grandmother’s house so the three set off to the house.  Along the way they encounter others, who help the troll by giving him additional items that he needs for his big day.  As they return to the wedding party, Dora and Boots meet Petunia, the lady troll the Grumpy Old Troll is to marry, as she too needs help on her big day.

Dora in Troll Land 
Dora and Boots adventure for the very first time into Troll Land as they hear the Grumpy Old Troll call out for help from beneath his bridge.  Dora and Boots go on a rhyming adventure through Troll Land to save the Grumpy Old Troll, who is stuck in a hole.  Dora and Boots enter Troll Land not only to help free the Grumpy Old Troll because it is the right thing to do, but they need the troll to open the gate to his bridge so everyone can get to the playground.
