When it comes to the children in my home, Dora the Explorer is a household name. The newest DVD release, It’s Haircut Day! was an excellent DVD buy for us. Hair cuts are always something that get put off by my children, especially my oldest son whom has a small fear of the buzz made by the electric razor. I was amazed to see him as well as my daughters glue to the screen as Dora and Boots went on a day long adventure to the barber shop.

I personally am a big fan of Dora’s wholesome cartoon show. I always feel save with no need to monitor TV activity when they select one of her episodes. With Dora’s Hair Raising Adventure they learned a fun way to experience getting a trim by the stylist/barber. My favorite seen was when the Grumpy Old Troll popped out from underneath the bridge with his long beard which he kept tripping over.
My children giggled and sang along with each episode. All of which were very much enjoyed. I most definitely suggest It’s Haircut Day! if you have a young one who is afraid of the chair or even for those who maybe going to experience their first hair cut ever. This is a great way to help make it a fun experience for them.
Dora the Explorer: It’s Haircut Day! Episode Synopses:
Dora’s Hair Raising Adventure
Boots really wants to give his mom a picture of himself for her birthday but he’s having a bad hair day. Thankfully, Dora knows who can help, El Peluquero (the barber). Dora and Boots set out on a Hairy Adventure to solve a riddle at the Troll Bridge by matching poodles with cool geometric-shaped haircuts, help Señora Gigante brush some birdies out of her hair, and sing a “corta el pelo” song with El Peluquero as he gives Boots a new haircut.
Happy Birthday, Super Babies
It’s the Twins’ 1st birthday! Abuela’s making Guillermo a banana cake and Isabella a strawberry cake – her favorite! As they wait for the cakes to bake, Dora tells a Super Babies story! Once upon a time, there was a cake-snatching bear who stole everyone’s birthday cake. This was a job for the Super Babies! They bounced across the Bouncy House, caught a ride with Tico through the Piñata Forest, and made it to the Bear’s Castle to get back the birthday cakes and save everyone’s birthday.
Baby Winky Goes Home!
Dora and Boots find a lovable little space creature named Winky. He came to visit with his family, Purple Planet’s Inky, Dinky, Plinky, Flinky and Al, but he got lost! Winky must get back to his family before their spaceship takes off. They set off singing a Spanish hopping song over Hopscotch Bridge, blow giant rocks into bubbles, and float all the way to the top of the Tallest Mountain.
Dora's Pegaso Adventure
Dora and Boots are playing a game of hide-and-seek with their friends Little Star and some animal constellations: Pegaso (the flying horse), a Baby Bear, a Lion and a Whale. Suddenly, a meteor shower rushes by scaring all of the animals away! The sky goes dark except for Little Star and Pegaso. If the constellations don’t come home to the moon before the sun comes up, they’ll never find their way home! They race against the sun and take a Pegaso ride to find the animal constellations.
