Much better than that crappy show "Dora"
29 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a adorable and educationally entertaining little show even though my rating is not quite close to excellent. I use to really like this show, but there are some episodes I don't really like but I don't mind that is still sort of liked it. There are some fun episodes kids will enjoy like "Twirly Whirly Flyers", "Lady Bug Festival" and is filled with some cool episodes. Dora the Explorer is really related (connected) to this show, but it's more of a dumber version of it that only teaches kids a boring and very hard lesson (language) that some little kids won't really get or understand. Now it is time to teach them a more funner and entertaining language that is easily learned like "Chinese" If you are looking for a show with more funner language than Dora's boring language, Ni Hao, Kai-Lan really hits the spot. It is a very girlie show, but I think girls will love it. Kai-Lan and her friends easily teaches kids how to get along with people and make friends usually by being polite to them like "Sharing" or do something "Calming" like breathing emotions like Super WHY but it has some cheesy emotional learning that easily dosen't stay on the right track, but kids and I still like it.
