Dora the Explorer Movies, Games, and More

When it comes to bilingual entertainment, few shows are as memorable as the Nick Jr. series Dora the Explorer. Preschoolers and little kids love to follow along with Dora as she explores the jungle with her best friend, Boots the monkey, and her cousin Diego. With her handy map and backpack, Dora teaches kids language skills, number sense, and problem-solving (all in two languages!). In addition to the TV series, there are also tons of Dora games, books, and apps, as well as spin-off movies and series, like the live-action tween adventure Dora and the Lost City of Gold. If your kid loves Dora, then explore the great picks on this list. ¡Vámonos!
