Can you believe that Halloween is just around the corner? Where did the year go? Well, I know what my family will be doing on Halloween after all the trick-or-treating is over . . . we’ll be watching Dora’s Halloween Parade.


Happy Halloween! Celebrate with Dora, Boots, and Little Monster in two nighttime Halloween adventures, and then join Dora for a backpack and musical parade too! Your preschooler can join the fun in this brand new DVD!


What we really like about all the Dora episodes is that they follow basically the same format. They usually have to solve a problem by getting from one place to another with the help of the Map and Backpack. Of course, they encounter some foes along the way which makes for some mischievous fun. I feel it’s a great way to keep my girls involved with the show because it gives them a sense of familiarity.

In Dora’s Halloween Parade, we celebrate this occasion with 4 different episodes each one featuring a different character. Our favorite was The Backpack Parade because it’s the first time we saw Backpack as a main character. Plus, we had no idea she was a girl! Plus, Kiana thought it was pretty funny to see a backpack sneeze. We also liked the Halloween Parade because it really emphasized helping each other and the true meaning of friendship.

Here are the 4 episodes included in this DVD:

Halloween Parade: Dora and Boots are headed for the big Halloween Parade when they run into their friend Little Monster. He really wants to be in the Parade but he doesn’t have a costume. Dora and Boots tell him not to worry as they help him find a costume at the parade.

Boo!: It’s Halloween, and while trick-or-treating Dora and Boots are surprised by a cute little monster who they help home before the arrow on the big clock strikes 12.

The Backpack Parade: Everyone is dressing up their backpacks in different costumes for the Backpack Parade. Backpack is really excited because this year she gets to lead the parade but she’s having trouble with her allergies.

Dora, la Músico: Dora and Boots are leading a musical parade to free the instruments that were locked up by the evil Señor Shhh.

Of course, there’s also a few Spanish words thrown in here and there as well as lessons in counting. Dora’s Halloween Parade is a great way to get your kids ready for this fun event!
