Nickelodeon’s Dora and Diego—Let’s Explore!

Get ready to explore with Dora and Diego in Nickelodeon’s Dora and Diego—Let’s Explore! The exhibit features beloved characters Dora and Diego from Nickelodeon’s hit preschool series Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!, along with their friends Boots, Map, Backpack, Isa, Tico, and of course Swiper, now in their own exhibit for preschoolers to explore as they learn and play along. Presented by Riley Children’s at Indiana University Health and supported by Aquafina and Priority Press.

The Purple Planet

Visit the Purple Planet with Dora and Boots! A Purple Planet home invites young visitors to climb inside and slide down on the surface of the Purple Planet.

Rocket Ship
Dora’s outer-space friends want to go back to the Purple Planet and need help getting there. Aboard the Rocket Ship, preschoolers are invited to pilot the ship, and test their memory with images of colorful planets as they help Dora and Boots take their outer-space friends home.

On the way to the Purple Planet, Dora and Boots encounter some interesting star groupings. Children and their families help identify the patterns made out of stars by inserting star shapes to light-up a constellation.

Isa’s Flowery Garden
Dora’s friend Isa the Iguana demonstrates how to take care of flowers, plants, and animals. Even the littlest visitors will enjoy picking some posies.

Tico’s Tree and Car
Dora is a good friend to Tico the squirrel and young visitors are encouraged to be a good friend to Tico too. Tico needs help picking nuts from the tree for a family picnic. Children play along with Swiper to swipe the nuts and watch as they shoot up and over to fill Tico’s basket. Tico’s car needs fuel! Visitors help Tico fill up his car with nuts so he can begin his journey.

Pirate Ship
In the Pirate Ship, preschoolers join the Pirate Piggies crew sailing the ship and divvy the treasure they’ve discovered. They can raise and lower the Pirate Piggies’ flag, help divide coins into the Pirate Piggies’ banks and help share the treasure.

Animal Rescue Center
Young children practice caring for rainforest animals in Diego’s Animal Rescue Center. Preschoolers can rescue animals, like Diego, as they diagnose and address an animal’s problem from the ‘Scanner’ bed.

Preschoolers will role-play, solve problems, practice sharing and caring behaviors, and practice Spanish words and phrases. Everyone will celebrate a successful day – “We did it! Lo hicimos!”
