Editorial Reviews

Perseverance and commitment to friendship are qualities that serve Dora well in this double-length Dora the Explorer episode that has Dora singing up a storm and, by the end, sporting a whole new look. Dora and Boots step through a magical gate into Fairytale Land where they discover classic fairytale characters, sweets, and a mean Witch (voiced by Chita Rivera). When Boots eats a tainted banana, he slumbers under a spell that can only be broken by a hug from a true Princess. Problem is, there are no true Princesses in Fairytale Land and time is limited. Dora vows to become a true Princess and embarks upon a challenging journey that begins with a search for a red ring hidden in a dragon's cave. Next she strives to get past a giant in order to teach the rocks to sing and then to defeat marching snowmen, rolling snowballs, and threatening storm clouds to turn winter into spring. Finally, Dora must somehow deliver the moon to the King and Queen. Spanish language skills, careful listening, compassion, and physical movement are promoted in this celebration of Dora's resolve to "never give up" in her quest to awaken her friend "Sleeping Boots." (Ages 2 to 5) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

When Boots Eats An Enchanted Banana & Falls Under A Meanwitch'S Spell, Dora Must Set Out On Her Toughest Adventure Yet- She Must Become A True Princess To Save Sleeping Boots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just For Girls... January 19, 2005
From the reviews, you would think that only girls should watch Dora. In fact, I see very few reviews for any of the Dora videos mentioning sons. This surprises me.

My almost 3 year old son has loved the Dora shows and videos since he was just months old. Early on, I'm sure it was the colors, the repition and music that attracted him. Now he loves the adventure, the language, the lessons and characters. My husband often speaks Spanish to my son, but he retains more from Dora. He loves that Dora can be a princess, a pirate, a musician, a balloonist, an explorer, a friend or anything else she happens to be that day.

I hope that other parents of boys are not avoiding Dora based on the gender of the main character. That would be a shame. These videos provide such good lessons (both moral and educational) that should apply to children of any gender.

Hooray for Dora!! My son is all boy, and we love her at our house!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one yet! October 31, 2004
My 17 month old daughter is in love with Dora. We have not stopped playing this Dora DVD since we bought it. For whatever reason, this particular Dora adventure has her glued to the screen. She loves helping Dora along the way and the songs have a good beat to them. I highly recommend this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars This girl is something June 7, 2005
You're welcome in Fairytale Land! Si!

I've watched this DVD for the 50th time with my nephew and I still appreciate how spunky and smart Dora is. You have to love a series that has titles such as "Dora Saves the Prince," and in this new fairy-tale adventure, Dora must race against time to wake up Sleeping Boots. As we all know, Boots will drop anything for a banana! Unfortunately, like Snow White (who appears in the story), he falls fast asleep once he eats a banana enchanted by a wicked witch. Why is she wicked? It just seems to go with the archetype.

Dora must become a true princess in order to break the witch's spell. With a little help from her friends Iza, Tico, Benny, Map, and Backpack as well as the denizens of Fairtyale Land, Dora is on her way! Come on, vamonos, everybody let's go!

Dora is a terrific heroine for girls: she doesn't get easily frustrated, she loves to laugh, and she's loyal to her friends. Best of all, she doesn't wait around for someone to save her!

The other story in which Dora and Boots imagine a continuation of the Three Little Pigs story is terrific too.

Overall, my wife and I love to let our children watch Dora The Explorer. We enjoy many things about Dora - the use of Spanish words, the map, the fact that she's a little girl and is not afraid to perform these adventures, etc.

Not to the part that we don't like and find issue with. With this DVD, there's a scene where Dora encounters a giant who has lost his puppy. The giant asks for Dora's help to find her puppy, which she does and they find the puppy.

Not to sound like an alarmist, but one of the classic child lures is for people to say that they have lost their puppy and need help finding it. As impressionable as our children are, we were afraid that Dora helping a stranger find his puppy could make our jobs that much more difficult about the importance of not talking to strangers. We have since quit watching this DVD.

We would encourage the makers of Dora to come out with a DVD about not talking to strangers, as she is such a great role model for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as ever! February 17, 2005
By Rita
My 4 yr old, like any little girl who is a Dora groupie, loved this DVD!

Recipe: Take Dora, mix in her being a princess, a castle, her long hair, lots of fairytale figures like Snow white or 3 little Pigs, spice with great music and songs and then add a Wicked Witch and you got it!

She of course wanted to see it 10 times a day so we dwindled it down to 2 times as I don't like her to watch alot. I was pleased with the length and content.

Another thing I liked about Dora in general is the Spanish but not because it teaches spanish - My daughter has been brought up bilingual Spanish/English - But because Dora is BILINGUAL and for kids who are bilingual, it is nice for them to have a child figure to relate too....My daughter always says "Dora is just like me!!!" : )

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for toddlers! October 24, 2004
My 2-year-old absolutely loves this movie! She no longer wants to watch regular Dora the Explorer, but rather now "Princess Dora" is her favorite! We rented it first from Blockbuster as an overnight - but have kept it for over a week! I decided it was time to buy our own since it has become an everyday ritual. Truly a great movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars "My little girl's very favorite Dora DVD!" January 3, 2005
Of all of the Dora the Explorer DVDs, this is my 3 year-old child's very favorite. She loves them all, but for some reason the "one where Dora turns into a princess" is really special to her. I guess because all little girls like the whole "princess" thing (I'm a daddy, can you tell?). She has the "Princess Dora" doll as well (she just got it for Christmas and it is her favorite present).

The story is very sweet and it involves Dora and Boots going to Fairytale Land where after a little while they run into a situation where it is up to Dora to make everything allright again. There are several more songs to this one (kind of like "Dora's Pirate Adventure, which is also a double-length episode featuring a little bit more story and more musical numbers). If you don't have this particular Dora DVD yet, this is most definitely one to get. My daughter has gone thru several phases where she likes one thing for awhile, and then another, etc. Dora, however, has been the one "thing" (for lack of a better word) that has remained tried and true. And I sure don't mind, the show is done really well and she has really picked up a lot from the show, both educationally and morally. I guess we're both big, big fans of Dora the Explorer, and I recommend this DVD very much!
