See what our mums think of the brand new Dora and Friends product range
Following the successful launch of Dora and Friends: Into the City! a brand new product range based on the series will launch on 27th July in Argos, Toys “R” Us and Smyths Toys Superstores.
The toy range includes everything a little Dora fan could want, including Diving Mermaid Dolls, Bath Squirters, Magic Charm Bracelets, Interactive Dolls, a Smartphone and much, much more!
40 of our top mums were asked to review the fab new collection - here’s what a few of our favourites thought;
"Let your little ones get vocal this summer and sing away every day with Nick Jr's Sing-Along summer. Tune into Nick Jr every day between 10am - 1pm to watch your favourite Nick Jr shows with a difference, on screen lyrics to all of their songs. To celebrate, your children are invited to sing and dance with Dora in special karaoke booths on the Dora Sing-Along tour this summer!
The Dora Sing-Along karaoke booth will appear in selected Sky retail stands and Smyths toy super stores across the UK giving your kids the chance to create videos themselves singing along to the Dora and Friends: Into The City theme tune. Just pop along to one of the below destinations.

I have tweets scheduled to remind you on the day of all these dates so you don't miss them, Dora is even appearing herself at the highlighted dates!
On Monday 27th Juky between 11-12 we are going to be over on twitter taking part in the #DoraSingAlong twitter frenzy. Make sure you join us and @UkMumsTv for your chance at winning lots of lovely prizes. To get us in the Dora mood we have been sent a box of Dora and Friends goodies for the children to try out.
The Dora and Friends Doll are priced at £10.99 and Miss S just loves them. Each doll is dressed in a outfit inspired by Dora and Friends and they come with a charm that you can attach to your Dora and Friends bracelet.
We got Dora herself and the lovely Alana, Miss S loves their soft shiny hair and their poseable arms and legs. She loves that you can remove their clothes and shoes as she loves to dress her dolls, both dolls came with a cute little doggy charm.
The Dora and Friends smart phone priced at £9.99 is more suited to the younger Dora fan as it doesn't really do much. It has a hologram front so when you tilt the screen the image changes. You press the screen and it says lots for different phrases and plays music. It is just like the smart phone Dora uses on the show so the kids will love it and as with the show the phone is bilingual so its educational to.
We love the Magic Adventure Charms priced at £7.99 they are great little sets that include a rubber charm bracelet, 3 charms and a Dora and Friends mini figurine.
The charms all have little hoels in the back and they just pop onto the bracelet, Miss S loved switching them all around and taking them on and off. Its great product for Miss S to get some motor skill technique practice due to the small pieces.
Then other favourite item was the Magic Charm Bracelet priced at £9.99, the bracelet comes with charms showing Dora and her friends Alana, Kate, Emma and Naiya, it also includes 2 additional bracelet and 6 additional charms so its perfect for sharing with your best friends. As with the other bracelets the charms are all removable and interchangeable with each other. Miss S really loves the braclets and insists on wearing all 4 at the same time!
Don't forget to tune into Nick Jr every day between 10am - 1pm and get vocal with Nick Jr's Summer Sing Along. Shows include Dora and Friends, Wallykazam, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol and Alvin and the Chipmunks.
