 Shapes All Over The Place (25 points)
You earned six Gold Stars in Starting Steps!
 

See “Mary Had A Little Lamb” for more information.

 
 Mary Had A Little Lamb (50 points)
You've earned twelve Gold Stars in Starting Steps!
 

Just earn 12 Gold Stars dancing through 8 songs in this category. You can dance to the same song over and over again and accumulate stars that way. I found that the song ‘Bubble Guppies Theme Song’ was the simplest and shortest (it’s only 35 seconds).

You could use the chair method to unlock these but it might take longer than to actually dancing to the song. But if you don’t care about the time, use the chair to make it easier on you.

 
 We Totally Rock (50 points)
You've earned twelve Gold Stars in Smooth Moves!
 

Just earn 12 Gold Stars dancing through 7 songs in this category. You can dance to the same song over and over again and accumulate stars that way. I found that the song ‘At the Zoo’ in Dance mode was pretty simple.

You could use the chair method to unlock this but it might take longer than to actually dancing to the song. But if you don’t care about the time, use the chair to make it easier on you.

 
 Questing, Questing (75 points)
You've earned eighteen Gold Stars in Fancy Footwork!
 

See “Reach for the Sky” for more information.

 
 Reach For The Sky (75 points)
You've earned twenty-four Gold Stars in Fancy Footwork!
 

Just earn 24 Gold Stars dancing through 7 songs in this category. You can dance to the same song over and over again and accumulate stars that way. I found that the songs ‘Anything to Help My Friends’ or ‘La Bamba’ in Dance mode weren’t that difficult.

It is recommended that you use the chair method to unlock these as the Fancy Footwork songs are longer and have more complicated dance moves. You are guaranteed at least one Gold Star but I was earning two Gold Stars about half the time. Results may vary.

 
 Cool Beans (50 points)
You got three stars on a Freeze Move for the first time!
 

From the Main Menu, select ‘Freeze’. Next, select ‘Starting Steps’ then select ‘Bubble Guppies Theme Song’. Dance through the song and when a freeze move appears, stand still until you get three Freeze Stars. You will see the freeze move coming up in the dance moves that scroll along the bottom of the screen. You have three chances in this song to get three Freeze Stars.

If this is your first time dancing to a Freeze song, you will also unlock “First Freeze”.

You can use the chair method so you are guaranteed three Freeze Stars all three times.

 
 Quick Step (50 points)
You played four Quick Play songs in a single game!
 

From the Main Menu, select ‘Quick Play’ (this defaults to the ‘Dance’ dance mode). Next, select ‘Starting Steps’ then select ‘Bubble Guppies Theme Song’ - yes, you can select the same song all four times. Dance through the song four times and when you’ve finished, the achievement will unlock.

If this is your first time dancing to a Quick Play song, you will also unlock “First Dance”.

 
 First Dance (25 points)
You played your first Dance song!
 

From the Main Menu, select ‘Dance’. Next, select ‘Starting Steps’ then select ‘Bubble Guppies Theme Song’. Dance through the song and when the song is finished, the achievement will unlock.

 
 Work It Out (25 points)
You played your first Workout song!
 

From the Main Menu, select ‘Workout’. Next, select your song (as there is a selection of Workout songs already chosen for you). Dance through the song and when the song is finished, the achievement will unlock.

 
 First Freeze (25 points)
You played your first Freeze song!
 

From the Main Menu, select ‘Freeze’. Next, select ‘Starting Steps’ then select ‘Bubble Guppies Theme Song’. Dance through the song and when the song is finished, the achievement will unlock.

 
 Dora Dance-A-Thon (50 points)
You played every Dora the Explorer song!
 

There are six Dora songs:

  • ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’ - Starting Steps (this song needs to be unlocked by earning 12 stars in this category)
  • ‘The Travel Song’ - Starting Steps
  • ‘Here Comes Santa Claus’ - Smooth Moves
  • ‘La Bamba’ - Fancy Footwork
  • ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star’ - Workout Song
  • ‘Sing-Along Party Mix’ - Workout Song

Upon dancing through these six songs, the achievement will unlock.

 
 Gold Star Glory (50 points)
You got your first three Gold Star rating!
 

From the Main Menu, select ‘Freeze’. Next, select ‘Starting Steps’ then select ‘Bubble Guppies Theme Song’. Dance through the song. This song’s dance moves are very simplistic and you really should have no problem getting three Gold Stars on this song. When the freeze moves appear (there’s three of them), you receive as many stars as you do for freezing, so if you receive two Freeze Stars, you get two stars towards your Gold Stars progress. Try to get all three Freeze Stars all three times you can. It will help.

It’s best that you don’t use the chair method to unlock this achievement because even if you play the same song twice or more, chances are you’ll end up with a different amount of Gold Stars earned.

 
 I'm a Star (75 points)
You got four three Star ratings in a single dance!
 

From the Main Menu, select ‘Freeze’. Next, select ‘Starting Steps’ then select ‘The Travel Song’. Dance through the song and when a freeze move appears, stand still until you get three Freeze Stars. You will see the freeze move coming up in the dance moves that scroll along the bottom of the screen. You have five chances in this song to get three Freeze Stars. If you earn three Freeze Stars four times or three Freeze Stars three times and three Gold Stars on the song, you will unlock this achievement.

Or you can use the chair method so you are guaranteed three Freeze Stars all five times.

 
 Superstar Streak (100 points)
You kept a Hot Streak going for six moves!
 

A hot streak occurs when you get three stars on two moves in a row then any additional three star moves is considered a hot streak. The hot streak stars have a blue trail. Keep this up for six moves or more and you’ll unlock this achievement.

I found that by dancing to The Fresh Beat Band song ‘Get Up and Go Go’ in ‘Starting Steps’ and using my chair in front of the Kinect (instead of actually dancing), I got a nine-move hot streak without even trying. I also got three Gold Stars without doing anything. Results may differ, though.

 
 World Tour (50 points)
You danced with every Guide Character!
 

There are six different Guide Characters, meaning that there are six different TV shows that these songs come from. Simply dance to each of the six different TV show characters and you’ll unlock this achievement.

The Guide Characters are:

  • Team Umizoomi
  • Dora the Explorer
  • Go, Diego, Go
  • The Fresh Beat Band
  • The Backyardigans
  • Bubble Guppies
 
 Dancetastic Duo (25 points)
You danced with a second player!
 

If you have a roommate, spouse or friend, simply dance to one song with them. If you are by yourself, you can use another object as the second player provided you can get the Kinect sensor to register it. An office chair or something solid and tall work well.

 
 Dancing Machine (50 points)
You got twenty Gold Stars in Dance!
 

Just dance to songs in any combination of the three categories in Dance mode to earn 20 Gold Stars and unlock this achievement. You can work on this as you are progressing through the individual Gold Star achievements.

 
 Workout Wonder (75 points)
You got twenty-two Gold Stars in Workout!
 

There are six songs to choose from in Workout mode. You cannot dance to any of the songs in the three categories; they have to be Workout songs (as they go through exercise moves in each song as opposed to dance moves), so you can’t progress any other achievements while doing this. Just dance through these songs to earn 22 Gold Stars.

It is recommended that you use the chair method for this.

 
 Freeze-Tastic (75 points)
You got twenty-four Gold Stars in Freeze!
 

Just dance to songs in any combination of the three categories in Freeze mode to earn 24 Gold Stars and unlock this achievement. You can work on this as you are through the other Freeze mode and individual Gold Star achievements.
