Fisher-Price and Nickelodeon Celebrate Dora’s 10th Anniversary

Mattel’s Fisher-Price joins with Nickelodeon to celebrate Dora the Explorer’s 10th anniversary this Saturday, August 14 with the debut of the new We Did It! Dora doll, now available at major retailers across the country for an MSRP of $39.99.

The original Dora doll sang the We Did It! song and swayed back and forth to the music. Eight years of technological advances later, Fisher-Price updates the new Dora doll with movements that were not possible before. This year, Dora moves her arms, swings her long hair and swivels her body to the beat as she teaches kids the steps to her signature dance and engages them with four modes of interactive play: Teach-Me (where Dora teaches kids the dance), We Did It! Dance, Freeze Dance, and Say It Two Ways bilingual dance game.

Nickelodeon celebrates the 10th anniversary of Dora the Explorer with a new, hour-long primetime TV movie, Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure, premiering Sunday, August 15, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. Following the TV movie, at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT), Nickelodeon will premiere the first-ever Dora 10th anniversary documentary, a special 12-minute tribute.

Ubisoft announced that it will be publishing Family Feud Decades, an interactive video game that challenges players with thousands of authentic survey questions from four different eras of the game show: 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. Created by Ludia and licensed by FremantleMedia Enterprises, Family Feud Decades is expected to be released November 9, 2010, in North America for the Wii.

The game has a fun, retro feel, featuring the classic set designs and scoreboards from each of the decades the TV show has aired. Additionally, players design a personal avatar to represent them in the game, with outfits from different eras.
