In “Return to the Rainforest,” Dora’s city friends travel back to the rainforest with Boots and embark on an epic journey to rescue Backpack and Map. In the later specials, Dora treks to Rainbow Rock with Boots; saves the show at an enchanted night circus; and even comes to Swiper’s rescue. will also feature a brand-new game, “Dora and Friends Rainforest Rescue,” on Friday, Sept. 11, as well an exclusive first-look at the episode.

The three Dora and Friends: Into the City! specials will each feature exclusive multiplatform content, including the launch of a brand-new Dora app for preschoolers. The Dora Back to the Rainforest app will allow kids to play and learn as they travel to the rainforest to help Dora and Boots find Backpack and return him safely home. Along the way, kids will encounter story elements and characters from all three of the special episodes, earn and collect charms for Dora’s bracelet and play min-games that help Dora and her friends complete their journey.
