My boys love singing and dancing to the music, plus they enjoy many of Nickelodeon’s hottest shows for kids!  Now, our kids can put on their dancing shoes and sing along with Nickelodeon’s most rockin’ characters in Nickelodeon Favorites: Dance to the Music on DVD.  Featured on this DVD are some of preschoolers’ favorite characters from Bubble Guppies, Team Umizoomi, Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!, The Wonder Pets!, and Ni Hao, Kai-lan.  Nickelodeon’s top-rated preschool show Bubble Guppies made its DVD premiere in this collection and as an added bonus kids can enjoy two Bubble Guppies karaoke music videos.  Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, Nickelodeon Favorites: Dance to the Music! arrived on DVD on Feb. 28, 2012, for the suggested retail price of $14.99.

Dora the Explorer – “La Maestra de Música”

Milli can’t wait to go see her friend Sophia dance in her school play, “The Big Bug Show,” but the Umi Team learns that Sophia’s butterfly costume is missing some parts!
