I'm so excited to be helping Nick Jr. celebrate Sing-Along Summer , every day between 10am – 1pm there will be episodes of Dora and Friends on Nick Jr. that will feature lyrics on screen, for kids to sing along with. Its not just Dora though, kids can sing along with, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Wallykazam! and ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks will each will have sing-along lyrics over their theme tunes and songs in each episode.
Not only that but Dora is going on tour! I know, its too exciting. Kids are invited along to sing in special Karaoke booths situated in Smyths Toy Superstores and Sky Rertail Stands across the country. You can check for your nearest booth here.
Your kids have the chance to pop into a booth and create videos of themselves singing along to the Dora and Friends: Into the City! theme tune. Videos from the booth can be entered into a competition where the winners will feature on Nick Jr. giving your little ones the chance to star on TV. Kids can also have their picture taken with a Dora costume character in selected Smyths Toy Superstores. Don't worry if you can't get to a booth you can record your own video and upload it to Nick jr.co.uk or on the Nick Jr. Facebook page to enter the competition.
As if all that isn't exciting enough We will also be taking part in the Dora twitter frenzy on Monday 27th July at 11am, there'll be loads of opportunty to win prizes so make sure you are watching the Nick Jr. Twitter feed on Monday and use #DoraSingAlong to take part.
We've also been reviewing a new range of fab Fisher Price Dora and Friends toys, Peanut loved all of our toys but her favourites have been these Dora and Friends Dolls, we have the 'Dora' and 'Kate' dolls, and they've been 'performing' lots of plays and dances, under Peanuts supervision of course! Great for role play and imagination development I love that these aren't barbie-esque they are freindly and easy to dress with no unrealistic shapes to them! (yes I am that mum) the dolls are only 10.99 each so really good value for money in my opinon, and each comes with a 'magic charm' which I'll explain in a moment...
When The Golden Child saw the toys he declared them 'for girls' which always leads to a conversation about how toys cant be for girls or boys they are just toys. So i think he surprised himself when he realised just how much he loved the Magic Adventure Charms, and Magic Charm Bracelet.
The adventure charms have a small dora figure, a charm bracelet and 3 interchangeable charms. The bracelet has charms with all the friends on , plus more interchangeable ones AND two more bracelts, so its a great to share with siblings or freinds, all the bracelet charms can be changed and swapped and there are loads of charms to collect. The Adventure Charm set is priced at £7.99 and the Magic charms bracelet is £9.99. Theres lots to play with though and The Golden child has seen it as a bit of a puzzle to find different combinations and change and swap the charms about.
I was really pleased at the Dora Smart phone, Termite loved to make it talk, it has phrases in English and Spanish and although Im not sure Termite realised, its just like Dora's smart phone in Dora and Friends Into The City. She and Peanut have been practicing taking selfies and making calls on it!
