Nickelodeon has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl (I still remember the hours I spent watching my favorite shows on that channel when I was younger) and now it's the channel of choice for my little ones as well.  Through the years Nickelodeon has brought so many fun and special characters into our homes and ultimately our hearts, but none has stayed the course like the beloved Dora the Explorer. 

I remember when my oldest daughters sat quietly on the couch watching Dora and her best friend Boots go on their outrageous adventures, I remember the first time each of my four children said their first Spanish word thanks to Dora and I remember the way my youngest daughter's eyes lit up on her first Christmas when she received a plush Dora that was almost bigger than her; to say Dora is special to us, would be a huge understatement.  It seems like Dora and Boots have been a part of Christmases at our house for as long as we've been a family and this Christmas, is no exception.  Thanks to the some of the awesome people on Nickelodeon's PR team, we got to try out several items from their Holiday Gift Guide, including the totally awesome Skate & Spin Dora and Boots from Fisher-Price!


If you have little ones who are fans of Dora the Explorer (and her best friend Boots), then I'm sure that Skate & Spin Dora and Boots in high on their holiday wish list and with good's a pretty awesome toy!

About Fisher-Price Skate & Spin Dora and Boots:
Dora and Boots make a fantastic skating team! Watch as they magically skate side-by-side, spin or skate in a conga line! Kids can even create their own routines for additional hands-on fun! The “wheely” impressive skating routines are complete with upbeat music and English and Spanish phrases!

I'm not usually that mom who gets all excited about toys (you seen one, you've seen them all), but this toy is a little different, I couldn't wait to get it out of the box and try it out before Diva got her little hands on it.  Skate & Spin Dora and Boots is one of those toys that you just can’t help but want to play with, it’s just so darn cool and so cute. I have to give Fisher-Price props for making the Skate & Spin Dora and Boots so easy to operate, you can switch between the two modes (Dance and Free Play) on the bottom of Dora’s skate and you start play by pressing the heart located on top of Dora’s skate—super easy, which is very important when you have a very impatient little one who doesn’t really want to take the time to “learn” to play with a new toy. I also love that the two toys can skate together in a variety of ways including holding hands and in a conga line with both Dora and Boots having the ability to lead the line at your child’s discretion. I must admit…this toy is extremely cute…don’t believe me? See Skate & Spin Dora and Boots in action below.

Pretty impressive, isn’t it? If you have a little Dora the Explorer fan on your holiday shopping list, I definitely recommend checking out Skate & Spin Dora and Boots from Fisher-Price, your little one(s) will be SO happy that you did!
