Dora and Friends sing-a-long and toy review

My girls have grown up with Dora since they were babies. Dora has even grown up with them, she now has a mobile phone, and bracelets in the city with her friends. If you tune into Nick Jr between 10am and 1pm this summer, you can even sing along with  Dora, Peppa pig, Paw patrol and other favourites with the lyrics on screen.  

To celebrate the sing-a-long and the launch of the new Dora and Friends toy range from Fisher price your kids are invited to sing and dance with Dora in special karaoke booths. The booths will be visiting selected Sky stands in shopping centres and Smyths Toy Superstores across the UK. Your child can create videos of themselves singing along to the Dora and Friends into the city theme tune. They will also be able to have their picture taken with a Dora costumed character in selected Smyths Toy Superstores.
The booths will be in the following places:
Waterfields Retail Park, Watford (Dora costume Character) 27th July
Westwood Cross Shopping Park, Thanet - 28th July
St Davids Retail Park, Swansea - 29th July
Crown Retail Park, Leeds, (Dora costume Character) 31st July

We will be popping down to our nearest for a fun morning out in the summer holidays. Will you be visiting?
We were also sent a selection of toys from the new Dora and Friends range from Fisher price.

The girls were made up with their special hamper. It included A Dora and a Kate doll. Dora Magic Adventure Charms, Magic Charms Bracelet and the Dora Smartphone.
Each doll is 8" tall and dressed in an outfit inspired by the Dora and Friends TV show. They have soft hair and pose-able arms and legs. Each set also comes with a charm to go on a Dora and Friends charm bracelet.
The girls loved brushing their hair. S did become frustrated that Kate's shoes kept falling off though. They were even taken up to bed with them, proving they are a big hit. With them retailing at £10.99 they wont break the bank either.
The magic charm bracelet retails at £9.99. The bracelet comes with charms showing Dora and her best friends. Everything is better when friends share together so the set also includes two more bracelets and six adventure charms that are perfect for sharing.
The charms from the doll sets are also able to be attached to the bracelet.
Dora Magic Adventure Charms retails at £7.99.This pack comes with a charm bracelet and three adventure charms that you can wear or share.
The pack also comes with a small Dora figure.

The Dora smartphone has been another BIG hit here. J has liked pretending to take photos with it, whereas S has pretended its a real phone. Constantly pressing the screen to receive incoming calls and voicemails.
You can hear ringtones, bilingual phrases and songs with the phone.
These toys are just a few from the new range. We look forward to checking out the full range when we visit Smyths for the karaoke booth.
Are your children fans of Dora and friends? Do you think they would like the new toy range?
