“Vomanos! Dora, Dora, Dora the Explorer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Seems well known!? I know …… Many of us can’t get out of it if we have little children.
This summer, Nickelodeon is taking Dora on tour around the UK for kids to meet and sing along with Dora and you can meet Dora and her friends at Smyths Toys stores soon.
From 18th July the Dora Sing-Along karaoke booth will appear at selected Sky stands in shopping centres and Smyths Toy Superstores across the UK, giving kids the chance to create videos of themselves singing along to the Dora and Friends: Into the City! 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 select Smyths Toy Superstores. You also will find a huge range of Dora toys. Here is a sample of what you can find in the store.
The smartphone is a super hit here and there is always someone looking for the smartphone to be left alone!! Charm bracelets are definitely getting a lots of love but we will explore them after our holidays at Switzerland. So, watch this space for more pictures.
