Happy Birthday, Dora! {GIVEAWAY}

My girls are TV junkies.  I know, I know, some doctor somewhere said kids shouldn't watch TV before a certain age and for more than a certain amount of time a day but you know what?  They like it and when they're happy, I'm happy.  And, as a TV producer myself, who am I to criticize the medium that pays my bills?

When it comes to their favorite TV shows, we are a Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. family all the way.  Yo Gabba Gabba, Wonder Pets, Blues Clues, Dora the Explorer....  You name it, they love it.  And honestly, so do their parents.  There are many a day when my husband and I find ourselves singing ditties like "There's a party in my tummy, so yummy, so yummy!" without even realizing we're doing it.  So when Nickelodeon sent me an advance copy of Dora the Explorer: Dora's Big Birthday Adventure, I was way more excited than someone my age probably should be.


If you aren't glued to Nickelodeon like we are, Dora the Explorer: Dora's Big Birthday Adventure is a movie-length adventure and the final chapter in the Magic Storybook Trilogy.  Featuring voices all of us parents will recognize, like Rosie Perez, Hector Elizondo and John Leguizamo, and music your kids are sure to love, it's a story that the whole family can enjoy together.

Dora the Explorer: Dora's Big Birthday Adventure comes out on DVD tomorrow, August 3rd, before premiering on Nickelodeon on August 15th at 8 pm.  The DVD also contains two new-to-DVD episodes as well as a DVD game.  At 95 minutes, it's a little longer than Gabrielle and Alaina's attention span right now, so I'm giving away the copy I received to one lucky AFOMFT reader.  Just think what you'll get accomplished with your kids happily occupied for more than an hour and a half!

  41. My girls LOVE Dora too! My 7yo has outgrown her but my 2yo is always talking about and watching Dora. My 2yo is having a Dora Birthday party when she turns 3 in October, so hearing about Dora's Birthday on commercials gets her so excited and is constantly saying, "I watch Dora's Birthday."
