4.0 out of 5 stars A DIfferent--And Well-Done Dora. November 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must admit that I am usually not the first to review a Dora DVD, mainly because I find her usual format a little boring and repetitive. However, this one intrigued me because Dora was attmpting something she never had before: time travel. And, seeing as how "A Christmas Carol" is one of my favorite stories, I decided to check this out. I was pleased to discover that the creators had raised the bar considerable for this holiday outing.
As we join Dora and her friends for their Nochebuena (Christmas Eve) bash, Swiper arrives to do what he does best: take everything away. Santa arrives to stop him--and also to tell him he's landed himself on the naughty list. Dora, moved by Swiper's plight, offers to get him back on Santa's good side. Using magical "travel capes" they journey into the past and future to see if Swiper can learn the true meaning of Christmas. Will they succeed, or will Swiper remain presentless?

What I like about this episode is that it breaks from the traditional Dora mold. For example, Map does not plot the route that Dora must take (though he does help in another way during the journey), and they don't repeat the same thing incessantly. For fans of Dora these things might or might not be a turn-off, but if your preschooler can take a change of pace, they will find the most well-crafted Dora special I've seen in a long time. It's definitely a DVD to look at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dora's Christmas Carol a hit for my 3 and 6 yr olds November 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We rented this DVD first, and sure enough, it's a major hit with both my 3 yr and 6 yr olds. They have watched it several times the past 2 days (rainy).

3.0 out of 5 stars Way too short1 November 14, 2009
Format:DVD
I have 4 year old twin girl and while they like this movie it is too short compared to the other Dora dvds we have bought for the same price. It only has the Christmas episode and nothing more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me October 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My kids, ages 1 and 2 absolutely love Dora the Explorer! They watch her show every day, and from the minute this movie came out last year they watched it over and over. I had it on DVR but when we moved it was erased, so they were disappointed. When I saw it on Amazon for a good price, it was a no-brainer. They love the singing and watch it over and over. As an adult, it's a little corny, but if they like it I love it. It works for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Occupies kids January 22, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I can't honestly review this movie because I am not its intended audience. I will say that it mesmerizes children in a most helpful way, and for that it earns three stars.

We always have issues with my son taking his twin sisters toys away so now we tell him not to swipe her toys and he totally gets it! The best Dora yet!

Didn't keep the kids' interest through the whole time...not sure why not. I can't say I found it worth 4 bucks (let alone 8 to buy) for what boiled down to a double length episode. Read more
