Global phenomenon Dora sets off on her next big adventure in Dora and Friends: Into the City!, a brand-new animated preschool series starring the Latina heroine in new adventures, with new friends and a new interactive curriculum, which airs on Treehouse on weekend mornings at 11:30 a.m. ET, beginning September 6 and 7.
The half-hour series (20 episodes) follows the iconic character Dora living in a city, as she attends school and interacts with her peers as they work together to give back to the community—and have real-life and magical adventures along the way.
Created by Chris Gifford and Valerie Walsh Valdes (Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!), Dora and Friends: Into the City! was developed with the support of educational experts and tested by preschoolers themselves, Dora and Friends is set to a contemporary soundtrack of Latin-influenced pop music and features an interactive curriculum focusing on community service, problem solving, emotional skills, Spanish language and Latino culture.
Set in the fictional city of Playa Verde, Dora and her friends go on adventures, whether it’s rescuing a lost stuffed monkey for a little boy in the hospital or returning a ring to an ancient Mayan Princess. Throughout her journeys, Dora uses Map App on her smartphone and a magical charm bracelet to navigate the city and overcome any obstacle. In the new series, Dora continues to be a good friend, leader, and problem-solver with a group of new friends–Kate, Naiya, Emma, Alana and Pablo-who share her passion for learning and exploring.
Meet Dora’s new friends:
· Kate, an avid reader who is dramatic and artistic.
· Naiya, a smart girl who excels at math and science.
· Emma, an accomplished musician with a drive to be the best.
· Alana, an athletic, confident soccer player and animal lover.
· Pablo, a smart, playful, energetic athlete and explorer.
