      Paul Schultz New York Daily News This is a perfect show for the 3-5 set, though it's easy enough that a 2-year-old would get a lot of it. May 6, 2019 Full Review EW Staff Entertainment Weekly Each episodes features new Spanish vocabulary, promotes diversity, and invites the audience to play along. The show is highly popular with kids and incredibly educational. May 6, 2019 Full Review Joly Herman Common Sense Media On one hand, Dora is an admirable character with a can-do attitude, but on the other hand, the show can seem simplistic -- even for young viewers. Rated: 4/5 May 3, 2019 Full Review

      Songer K Ok way to teach Spanish at least. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review Taylor T This was my favorite show when I was little. Dora may be annoying, but this is still a good show to teach kids a little bit of spanish. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/08/23 Full Review Daniel Q This is awesome teaching kids to learn Spanish🇪🇸 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/21/23 Full Review Gabriel K I love that it teaches young kids, Spanish Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/27/23 Full Review Rama When you think about it, the show kind of did the best it could with it's concept. You couldn't really change the concept or else it'd be a different show, it wasn't good but it wasn't bad either. Plus it was my favorite show when I was younger so it has a special place in my heart! It's as good as it could be for a point and click video game inspired interactive educational cartoon so I'll give it a 2 and a half for effort I guess! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/19/23 Full Review Andre G I got to admit I like dora the explorer. My daughter got me into to watching this with her. It made for good quality time together. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/14/23 Full Review Post a review
