Dora’s Halloween Parade DVD : Review [Giveaway CLOSED]

Dora’s Halloween Parade coming to DVD August 30, 2011


Preschoolers will join Dora and her friends on exciting Halloween adventures in the new four-episode DVD, Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Halloween Parade. Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Halloween Parade will be released on DVD on August 30, 2011, for the suggested retail price of $16.99.

Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Halloween Parade Episode Synopses:

  • 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.

DVD Running Time:  Approximately 97 Minutes


You would think that after all of the Dora DVDs that have come and gone out of our house, Emma and Ethan would be indifferent when a new one arrives. They aren’t! As soon as they saw it was a Dora Halloween video they went bonkers and had to see it right now.

Dora is as cute and helpful as ever in these Halloween adventures. I like the Emma and Ethan are picking up Spanish without knowing they are learning and that they are also learning life lessons like being helpful, kind and a great friend. After watching the video both the kids want to dress up and are excited about Halloween!!
