Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this is a greatest hits album of all the Dora the Explorer hits and faves from the TV show. There are some new songs with a more mature (but still kid-appropriate) sound, and a guest appearance from singer Shakira.

What's the story?

DORA THE EXPLORER: WE DID IT! is a greatest hits album featuring all the well-known fan favorites from the endlessly successful Nick Jr. TV show, Dora the Explorer. From Dora's theme song to "Backpack" and the "Cleanup Song," the 15 tracks include every song your little Dora fans love, including 5 previously unreleased tracks. Latin singer Shakira guest sings on the warm-hearted, "Todos Juntos," a song about doing things together.

Is it any good?


If your preschooler loves Dora, then they will love this greatest hits album. It's like listening to the show, but with all the familiar favorites. As if you or your toddler hadn't already had enough with Dora on the TV, the Dora backpack, Dora pajamas, and the Dora dreamhouse, now your little explorers can listen to Dora everywhere they go. The new tracks showcase a slightly more mature sound that's still great for young fans, and feature a friendly song about togetherness sung by a fellow Latin spunkstress, Shakira. 

Families can talk about...

  • Families cna talk about how Dora the Explorer has been around for a long time now, and how she's as much a fixture in the life of a toddler and preschooler as Cheerios and Crocs are. Is it okay for kids to love all things Dora? When is a fascination for a character too much?

  • Dora is a spunky, go-getter who never gives up and is always kind to others. Do you try to be like Dora? What is your favorite thing about Dora? How does watching her show make you feel?

A great Dora album!

A hit, they should play this on the radio instead of all that rap garbage that's polluting my children! I blame the evil school children!
