My 3 year old daughter loves Dora.

Paced so little ones can follow along and learn with lots of repetition.

We find ourselves saying, "Swiper, no swiping!".

Love this on Amazon prime streaming video - my 3yr old daughter can't get enough of Dora and Boots. She now loves to take her own backpack places and we'll be making a map soon. Great entertainment for the younger crowd.

If I hear the Dora opening song one more time...I'll...I'll...there is goes again in my head.

I would have banned this show from the house a long time ago, but my children are iPad and iPhone computer scientists, who seem to be able to find Dora on 1x wifi connections on a dusty road in Arizona. At the core, this show is super formulaic and annoying in its repetition. I suppose we can't make too big of a deal of this since most other entertainment have some repletion, but Dora takes it to an extreme. How are they going to get to the top of Candy Top Mountain? How!? Who cares! I hope the troll eats them this time. It would be good to show the kids that sometimes plans don't work out. Swiper the Fox get Boot's shoes, and Dora falls into the Swamp. Yes, sad...but a life lesson instead of frosting served on a cloud of saccharin.

Signed,
The Grumpy Old Troll

I love Dora, as do my 2 year-old-twins. I think it's a great show for their age. It's sweet and fun.

"Berry Hunt" is a fun episode that the boys love. The song "Going on a Berry Hunt" is much sung by us, and adaptable to many situations. Very catchy.

But towards the end of this episode, Dora busts through a locked gate (well, "abre"s through) to get to Blueberry Hill, where she must be careful, because it's where Swiper lives. After taking berries from a tree right next to Swiper's hole, he appears, and is accused of trying to swipe Dora and Boots's berries.

Certainly Swiper is mischievous in almost every episode, but in this case it is clearly Dora and Boots who have broken and entered, trespassed on Swiper's property, stolen his property, and perhaps harassed his pet bear (or at least put his life in danger from the freezing water).

I am careful to explain this to the boys whenever they watch, and i hope other parents do as well. It's a great learning opportunity and "teachable moment" about relative perspectives.

Swiper, if you read this, we're with you.

Also, in that train race - what would the other trains have done if they won the whistle? Then they would have had an extra one... wouldn't they have given it to Azul?

My 2 year 8 month old granddaughter is a huge Dora fan. As an Amazon Prime Member, I have easy access to episodes on my iPad 3 via Amazon Instant Video.

My granddaughter now likes to count in Spanish and has developed a small Spanish vocabulary. I think any show that helps expand a child's cultural horizons is worthwhile--especially when the toddlers don't even know that is happening but just focus on the fun and entertainment that the show provides. This is yet another show that proves learning can be fun.

My granddaughters have both loved Dora. Each episode contains multiple lessons about life and character. Additionally, they are exposed to Spanish as well as lessons about diversity and culture. This provides a great early childhood foundation for learning.

Before I get started I need to break out my map. How do I get to the end of this review? Map says I need to go up a catchy title, then through the tunnel why and then over mount Star.

Say it with me:

Go up Catchy title
Through the tunnel of why
then over mount star

If you don't understand my title, you need to watch this show. Google does not have the answer to this one. Basically, it is the equivalent of going to Walmart, walking up to someone and yelling, "Shop lifter no shop lifting." One day I will do this.

So we went up catchy title. Now where do we go?

Through the tunnel of love or the tunnel of why?

That is right we go through the tunnel of why!

You don't need to watch it. However, it is very educational for your child. Sure she speaks spanish. That is a good thing. These simple words will help your child as they grow older. Only thing, I live in Hawaii and Japanese is our second biggest language. I don't think spanish is going to help. But really, it is fun, educational and entertaining. I have learned a lot of español from this show.

We went up the catchy title and through the tunnel of why. Now do we go over mount fun or mount start?

That is right, we go over mount star!

5 Stars because the shop is free for Prime users and it rocks!

How to rate this show depends on whether I'm giving my opinion or that of my 3 year old. Surely she would give it 5 stars and she is already hooked and completely enamored of Dora and Boots after 2 episodes. Having grown up largely outside the U.S. and in semi-rural areas she has not previously been exposed to much tv, and while we're here visiting relatives I decided to check out the Dora obsession that seems to have been fairly solidly rooted in the U.S. since this series started. Pluses: my daughter loves that the characters seem to talk directly to her and seek her assistance and the storylines are easy to follow for a young child her age. There are a few educational points (review of counting) but mostly this is pure entertainment. Minuses: It disturbs me a little that this show seems to demonstrate that all challenges can be surmounted formulaic-ly and easily within 25 minutes resulting in lots of "way to go!!" and back-patting. I wonder if this is why people in the U.S. are growing increasingly depressed and frustrated--they are being taught from a young age that everything should be able to be successfully wrapped up with minimal effort and that they deserve praise for making any effort at all.
