Designed for children ages three and up, Dora the Explorer: Animal Adventures offers seven locales teeming with tropical creatures including anacondas, anteaters, tapirs, monkeys, lizards, and tree frogs among others. Kids learn and improve skills connected with counting, number values, color matching, shapes, and memory while visiting Dark Mountain, Rainforest Treetops, River Rapids, Canopy, Riverbank, Understory, and the Animal Rescue Center.
Activities include catching stars and counting in either English or Spanish, spotting animals in exotic and colorful locales (visual analysis, guessing and logic skills), helping Dora rescue animals by imitating various animal movements (spatial), and feeding animals at the rescue center. Dora and her companion Boots get help from such friends as Saltador the Explorer Star, a Pink Amazon River Dolphin, while negotiating river rapids to rescue baby animals, and play a matching game at Dark Mountain with the help of Glowy the Explorer Star. Animal Adventures features three difficulty settings, sing-along songs, a habitat maker, and the ability to print out habitats and stickers. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
