Birthdays is a section on the Nick Jr. site filled with birthday themed content for you and your little ones to enjoy. The section has a photo submission area where parents can send us a photo of their child with the chance to feature in a Birthday music video airing on Nick Jr. every day at 8am or feature in our online gallery. If the child isn't selected, they will still receive a special surprise on their birthday. There are also some birthday activities for kids to print and make Nick Jr. party items such as place mats, party hats, party blowers, straw toppers and more!
Dora the Explorer is a half-hour animated children's television series starring a 7-year-old Latina girl and her friends. The show is designed to actively engage preschoolers in a play-along, computer-style adventure.
In each episode, Dora invites viewers to join her on an adventure or an exploration with a clearly defined goal at the end. Using Map to point out the stops on the way, Dora and the viewer must solve problems and overcome obstacles along the way to their goal. At the end of each episode, Dora, the viewer, and Dora's friends, celebrate with Dora's signature "We Did It" dance.
Dora the Explorer is a ground-breaking children's show, in part because it incorporates play-along viewing and interaction in every episode. Dora the Explorer also introduces kids to Spanish words, encourages movement, and gives viewers the skills and the confidence needed to overcome challenges.
