Pack your backpack, let's go! Dora the Explorer and friends are coming to Melbourne. We just spent a weekend at Seaworld on the Gold Coast, where one of the highlights for our toddler was the all-singing all-dancing Dora show. Well, now there is the opportunity to catch the super-cool explorer closer to home. Preschoolers will love helping Dora on the search for her lost teddy bear - solving puzzles to pass through the number pyramid and the mixed-up jungle to reach the City of Lost Toys.
Dora the Explorer Live! Search for the City of Lost Toys will be playing at Her Majesty's Theatre on the 13th and 14th July with three shows a day (showtimes at 10.30, 13.00 and 15.30). Each show lasts for 80 minutes (two 30 minute acts with a 20 minute interval). Tickets are not cheap, with the lowest cost ones starting at $23. Die-hard fans can buy VIP tickets with a meet and greet opportunity after the show for $49.
