Emma was over the moon when she opened the package containing this 3 DVD box set. Apparently she had been wanting Dora Saves the Snow Princess for quite some time (unbeknownst to be).

We love Dora in our house… they kids learn a little bit of Spanish, learn problem solving skills, map reading skills, that “swiping” isn’t nice and more Smile .

    Hi, I can’t copy your button code. Everytime I try to highlight it I get “stuff it” coming up. I would love to add you button to my blog so I can get that extra entry. Could you maybe email me at
    with the code. Not sure why I can’t highlight. I have never had this problem before.
    Thank you.
