America's favorite explorer is back with Dora the Explorer: It's Haircut Day!

The four-episode DVD set includes "Dora's Hair-Raising Adventures," where Boots gets his first haircut. Better yet, kiddos can celebrate Dora's twin siblings' first birthday, join a spaceship adventure, and hop on Pegaso, the flying horse constellation!

Each episode features the following storyline:

Dora's Hair Raising Adventure: Boots really wants to give his mom a picture of himself for her birthday but he's having a bad hair day. Dora knows who can help - El Peluquero (the barber). Dora and Boots set out to solve a riddle at the Troll Bridge by matching poodles with cool geometric-shaped haircuts, help Señora Gigante brush some birdies out of her hair, and sing a "corta el pelo" song with El Peluquero as he gives Boots a new haircut.

Happy Birthday, Super Babies: It's the twins' 1st birthday! Abuela's making Guillermo a banana cake and Isabella a strawberry cake. As they wait for the cakes to bake, Dora tells a Super Babies story: Once upon a time, there was a cake-snatching bear who stole everyone's birthday cake. Cue the Super Babies!  They bounced across the Bouncy House, caught a ride with Tico through the Piñata Forest, and made it to the Bear's Castle to get back the birthday cakes and save everyone's birthday.

Baby Winky Goes Home!: Dora and Boots find a lovable little space creature named Winky. He came to Earth with his family, Purple Planet's Inky, Dinky, Plinky, Flinky and Al, but he got lost! Winky must get back to his family before their spaceship takes off. They set off singing a Spanish hopping song over Hopscotch Bridge, blow giant rocks into bubbles, and float all the way to the top of the Tallest Mountain.

Dora's Pegaso Adventure: Dora and Boots are playing a game of hide-and-seek with their friends Little Star and animal constellations: Pegaso (the flying horse), Baby Bear, Lion and Whale. Suddenly, a meteor shower rushes by scaring all of the animals away! The sky goes dark except for Little Star and Pegaso. If the constellations don't come home to the moon before the sun comes up, they'll never find their way home. They race against the sun and take a Pegaso ride to find the animal constellations.
