Dora the Explorer Digital Camera & Giveaway

Basic CMYK I was sent a really cute Dora the Explorer Talking Digital Camera and I allowed Doodle to try it out! He’s a pretty big shutter bug and didn’t have a problem with the fact it’s a Dora camera.

I was surprised at how light weight it was. Not sure why I always expect cameras to be heavy. Probably because I’m comparing it to my full sized camera.

How does the Dora Camera work? Well, I thought this had a lot of features for the little crowd. Here are the options you can flip through:


  • Continuous Shot Mode

  • 3 Shot Mode

  • Delete All

  • Delete Last Photo

  • Photo Resolution

  • Compression

  • Frequency

Now if you look through that list you realize this is definitely a hands on parent activity. I can’t think of any 4yr olds who will choose from that list on their own and know what they’re doing with the camera.

I found it easy to set it on Continuous Shot Mode and leave it there. With the way Doodle was running around with the Dora Camera there should’ve been an “active” mode!

Next comes the fun Digital Software that comes with the Dora Digital Camera.Dora Software The software has photo editing options and games for the kids to play. You can also email photos, print them or watch a slide show.

Now, I have to admit, many of Doodles photos are blurry because he takes his photos while running around. And I don’t mean that in a random way, I mean he’s actually running in most of the photos he took! But I was able to snap one of him. =)010

Now for details on the giveaway:

*Sakar isn’t providing a camera for giveaway, which is fine, so I’ll be giving away our review camera. It was only used once by myself and my son and all photos have been deleted. I cut the packaging on the side and you can’t tell it’s been open other than the slice. If no one is interested, I will take away the giveaway offer, no problem. =)

Required: If you win this camera, who would be the shutterbug using it?

Giveaway open to US Residents 18 yrs or older. Please leave your email in the required entry or have it available in your profile. No email/contact = No entry. Giveaway ends 1/27/11 at 11:59 PST. Winner has 48 hours to respond.

Extra Entries:

I’d like to thank Sakar for sending this review item. The opinions expressed are my own and never influenced by the company.

  1. I would let my daughter use it, or pass it onto a friend or family member's little girl who I know doesn't have a camera or can't afford one... like I've said- I'm not afraid of hand-me-downs! :) Thanks so much!

  4. Oh, no! Don't take this giveaway off!!! I have a toddler who wants to use my digital camera to take pictures like the adults. He will fight, kick, and scream (yep - the whole 9 yards of tantrums!) if we don't let him look at it, push all the buttons, etc. He will be getting the camera if I win. Yes, he's a little young for it, but I think that, with a LOT of patience, we can teach him how to take care of it properly.
    Thanks for the chance at winning this!

  180. Entered the Gorton's giveaway. At least I think I did. Lol. I put one entry in but the comment that tells me it will come up after you approve it didn't show up so I stopped after that first entry. I will check back tomorrow to see if that one shows up then finish it. Ugh, nothing in my life is ever easy. Lol. Guess that's why it's life huh?
