May Nickelodeon DVD Releases

There are a bunch of new DVD realeases this month including Nickelodeon Favorites: Food With Friends (May 17, 2011), Dora the Explorer: It’s Haircut Day (May 3, 2011), and Fanboy and Chum Chum (May 24, 2011). We always enjoy the Nickelodeon Favorites DVDs because we get a variety without having to change the DVD and it is especially perfect for long car rides (think summer vacation) when I can’t reach the DVD player from the passenger’s side without stopping. We planted a raised bed garden this year, so on top of the fact that we love to eat, food is a fun topic for us as we watch our seedlings grow. I am hoping to be a good example to my daughter about making healthy food choices and that helping grow our veggies this summer will encourage her to want to try more things. Dora’s It’s Haircut Day celebrates “firsts” and Fanboy Chum Chum is new to me, but my girlfriend’s elementary-aged kids enjoyed watching it. 

All of these titles can be found (or are coming to) a retailer near you or online at

Dora the Explorer: It’s Haircut Day! Episode Synopses:

Dora’s Hair Raising Adventure
Boots really wants to give his mom a picture of himself for her birthday but he’s having a bad hair day.  Thankfully, Dora knows who can help, El Peluquero (the barber).  Dora and Boots set out on a Hairy Adventure to solve a riddle at the Troll Bridge by matching poodles with cool geometric-shaped haircuts, help Señora Gigante brush some birdies out of her hair, and sing a “corta el pelo” song with El Peluquero as he gives Boots a new haircut. 
Happy Birthday, Super Babies
It’s the Twins’ 1st birthday!  Abuela’s making Guillermo a banana cake and Isabella a strawberry cake – her favorite!  As they wait for the cakes to bake, Dora tells a Super Babies story!  Once upon a time, there was a cake-snatching bear who stole everyone’s birthday cake.  This was a job for the Super Babies!  They bounced across the Bouncy House, caught a ride with Tico through the Piñata Forest, and made it to the Bear’s Castle to get back the birthday cakes and save everyone’s birthday.

Baby Winky Goes Home!
Dora and Boots find a lovable little space creature named Winky.  He came to visit with his family, Purple Planet’s Inky, Dinky, Plinky, Flinky and Al, but he got lost!  Winky must get back to his family before their spaceship takes off.  They set off singing a Spanish hopping song over Hopscotch Bridge, blow giant rocks into bubbles, and float all the way to the top of the Tallest Mountain. 

Dora’s Pegaso Adventure
Dora and Boots are playing a game of hide-and-seek with their friends Little Star and some animal constellations: Pegaso (the flying horse), a Baby Bear, a Lion and a Whale.  Suddenly, a meteor shower rushes by scaring all of the animals away!  The sky goes dark except for Little Star and Pegaso.  If the constellations don’t come home to the moon before the sun comes up, they’ll never find their way home!  They race against the sun and take a Pegaso ride to find the animal constellations.
