I’ll be the first to admit I had no idea who Dora was for a long time. I started babysitting my niece who admired her and Boots. I became interested in the show, especially since she taught some Spanish and it was on Nickelodeon. After I had Zoe, and she started to enjoy TV, Dora was one of the shows she always adored. She would just stare at the TV, and then out of the blue one day said “Dora”. Of course Boots became a favorite of hers. She could count to five in Spanish at a very early age, and I’ll tell you, I’m not the one who educated her in speaking Spanish. It was never a preferred subject of mine. Dora taught her quite a bit, so I instantly liked the show. Zoe then became fascinated in her books, and toys. I had no idea there was a preschool magazine available for our little Dora admirers. Last summer, Titan Magazines released the first issue Fiesta! Party! The magazines are named Dora the Explorer and Friends.
Each 36-page, bimonthly magazine introduces kids to the multilingual world of Dora and Diego, taking them on amazing adventures while helping them discover new things about their world.
We received the first 3 issues for review and I really appreciate how they are geared for our younger children. They are filled with various educational activities for our kids to enjoy, and you get hands on learning entertainment. From coloring, drawing, stories, learning letters, great activities, Spanish, writing, mazes, and so much more.
There are even free stickers which toddlers love. Zoe has really been enjoying the magazines, and her favorite activity right now is learning to write. The magazines have pages with letters and words with dots, so she is able to trace the words. The pages are filled with bright colorful pages, a great deal of information, and the material inside is exciting for a three year old. I think they are great. Zoe really enjoys looking at my magazines, so it’s great to have her sit with me and read. She feels just like mom. The educational magazines are high quality, and have all our favorite friends; Dora, Boots, Diego, Backpack and the rest of the gang.
