Dora Puppy

Good for kids aged: 3 to 6

System: Nintendo DS, DSi

Why we love it: The game teaches kids the importance of taking care of pets as they help Dora groom, feed and train her puppy, Perrito, for the Big Puppy Competition. We also like that Dora's adventure doesn't include bad guys—just bones to collect and other puppies to rescue.

What you should know: As in the show, Dora breaks into Spanish throughout the game, so it may be initially confusing for children who aren't familiar with the hit TV series.
