"Where are we going?"-Camping with Dora, in this new Leapster cartridge designed to expand preschoolers' knowledge of basic Spanish. Young players can choose from one of three games around the virtual campsite: a canoe game, an animal hunt and a sing-along, with additional levels and choices within each of the main games. The "canoe" and "animal hunt" sub games ask the player to find or identify objects using English and then Spanish word prompts. Once the user has identified three objects in a given category (for instance, cat=gatto), he or she receives a page in a camping journal. Players can then view the journal, which shows each collected item on its own page complete with a Spanish label and audio identification. Overall, this cartridge is a simple introduction to Spanish words for objects, animals, shapes and colors and features the Leapster details we've come to expect including audio and visual instructions and prompts, a hint button and upbeat background music that can be adjusted or muted.
