There is one official Dora the Explorer dress-up game called "Dora's Adventure Dress-Up," which first appeared on the Nick Jr. website. Other online Dora the Explorer games exist, but this is the only one that features a dress-up theme.
"Dora's Adventure Dress-Up," based on the popular children's show "Dora the Explorer," is an online mix and match game designed for kids ages 3 to 5. The game only has one level. In it, the players go through Dora's wardrobe and choose which clothing and accessories they want her to wear for her next adventure. To put an item on Dora, the players click on it and drag it over to her, and she puts it on.
The wardrobe choices vary from Dora's traditional outfit of a pink T-shirt and orange shorts to a headband with cat ears and a pair of black, witch-like boots. When players are done choosing Dora's outfit, they have the option of printing out a detailed colored picture of Dora wearing it. The print-out also comes with a thank-you note from Dora herself. Developmentally, this game helps preschool-age children improve their hand-eye coordination and encourages independent thinking and decision-making.
The popularity of "Dora's Adventure Dress-Up" has inspired many other copycat games on different websites such as "Dora's Dress Up Adventures," "Dora's Mix And Match Dress Up" and "Dora's Fun Dress Up."
