These are games featuring TV character Dora the Explorer.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that these games offer no objectionable content and encourage a variety of skills, such as logic, hand-eye coordination, and cooperation. The games also can help teach kids some of the basic mechanics of video games, such as how to jump over objects and how to jump up onto others. The graphics are grainy and the games don't have much depth, but for an additional $10, parents can add more content to this self-contained system.
Is It Any Good?
While the graphics in these games are grainy and the controls are a little spongy, the price is right. For $19.99, kids get five fun Dora games, two of which are educational. And by adding the Dora GameKey for $9.99, kids can unlock exciting additional content. These games are a good way to introduce young children to the strategies found in video games.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
