All of our favorite Nickelodeon pals are going on Summer Vacation on June 21st, with the release of the new DVD Nickelodeon Favorites: Summer Vacation.
When I unwrapped the package and Emma saw this DVD, it got her attention right away. She’s becoming more and more fond of Dora so the fact that she is the main focal point on the cover may have had something to do with it. She wanted to watch it right away, so in the DVD player it went and Emma assumed her favorite spot on the sofa.
It’s great to have a summer-themed DVD featuring all of the different Nickelodeon characters we watch. The episode synopsis is as follows:
Dora the Explorer – Baby Crab
Dora and Boots are having a blast at the beach when all of a sudden they hear a call for help. A baby crab has gotten stuck in a net on his way to bring his mother a present. Fortunately, Dora finds a pair of scissors inside Backpack and quickly frees Baby Crab, but he’s forgotten which way to go. Dora and Boots need help to take Baby Crab through the Squishy Squid’s Musical Sand Castle, over a mountain of rhythmically Snapping Clams and across the ocean to his mami on Crab Island.
Go, Diego, Go! – Panchita the Prairie Dog
At the Rescue Ranch, Diego and Alicia find Panchita, a Mexican Prairie Dog who needs to find a nice grassy prairie for her family. Diego and Alicia turn Rescue Pack into a wagon and head out with Panchita and her nine brothers and sisters. At the train tracks, two prairie dogs fall off the wagon and they need help to jump over the train tracks. Next, at the Dry River Bed, Panchita gets caught on a floating log, but Alicia uses her Rescue Rope to lasso her. Finally, Panchita and the family make it all the way to the grassy prairie where they make a new underground home.
The Wonder Pets! – Save the Hermit Crab! / Save the Dolphin
The Wonder Pets take a break from their vacation in Cancun to help a Hermit Crab who has outgrown his shell. Afterwards, the Wonder Pets travel to Hawaii to save a Young Dolphin who has gotten caught in a fisherman’s net.
Blue’s Clues – Blue’s Big Car Trip
Blue’s Clues is hitting the road! Blue puts her booster seat in Carmen, an animated talking car, and sets off on a journey. Along the way, they enjoy the fun of riding in a car: buckling up, singing songs and using the sights out the window to play interactive games. There are exciting stops along the way and new places – the gas station, the post office, the tollbooth and many more.
Yo Gabba Gabba! – Summer
All the characters in Gabba Land use the outdoors and friends to capture the happiness of summertime. In “Bubbles,” “Summertime” and “Jumpy Jump,” everyone has fun doing different outdoor activities. Finally, the gang has a pool party and learns to take turns on the slide in the “Wait Your Turn” song.
Ni Hao, Kai-lan – The Hula Duck Dance Party
Kai-lan is going to a party at the Hula’s Ducks’ new island beach house, but when the party games lead to Rintoo having to sit out each time, he starts to cry. Kai-lan, Rintoo and Ho-Ho need help to figure out a new way to play so no one is left out.
