What's it about?
In DORA THE EXPLORER: ANIMAL ADVENTURES, preschoolers join Dora as she helps her cousin Diego at an animal rescue center located near a rainforest. Diego needs help locating animals after a big storm, so he asks Dora and the player to look for missing animals. With Dora, players go to different parts of the rainforest, including its understory and its canopy.
Some of the baby animals have scrambled up into the rainforest treetops. To reach them, players help Dora navigate by instructing her to move like animals of the rainforest -- she may have to hop like a frog, crawl like a snake, or swing like a howler monkey to reach the babies. Preschoolers also will meet nocturnal animals in a match-up-the-pairs type game, and practice counting with Diego by helping him to feed the rescued animals. They will rescue another animal by playing a side-scrolling arcade game.
