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.

Talk about living on the edge of your seat. I remember this one time Dora had a place to go and she didn't know that way. So do you know what happened then? SHE ASKED THE MAP. Talk about mind blown. I did not see it coming. Then this other time she had a place to go and she didn't know where to go, and do you know what she did that time. SHE ASKED THE FREAKIN MAP AGAIN!!! I couldn't believe her cleverness. I was literally standing and shouting at the TV(Not a rare occurrence with this show). I am pretty excited to see where this series goes. I'm thinking by season 6 she will have made Bene the Bull into steak, and will have nice fox skin jacket from the low life thieving Swiper the fox. Also I am a bit concerned she may get kidnapped. I am currently under the impression she s sneaking out of her house and doing acid.

This is a great animated learning series for pre-schoolers and toddlers. It is very fun to watch with your child. These animators and producers were really trying to reach out to children to build thier cognitive learning and memory skills. I believe my daughter was about two years old when she started watching Dora. She picked up new words in her vocabular from the show on a daily basis. My daughter also developed the ability to tell a simple story and learned how to describe a sequence of events during the time she watched Dora the Explorer. There are just so many good things to say about this children's program that I wish I had more time to write them all down. Watch the first season and I am sure your child's speech patterns will double or triple. My daughter and I watched the first season three times in less than a month. Even if your child's speech patterns don't improve as fast as my daughter's, I'm sure your child will learn to dance to the closing music of each show's "We Did It!" theme song.

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!

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.

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?

Dora the explorer gives little girls a female figure to look up to for their self-esteem in a world where all the action figures seem to be involved in violent, loud and abnormal activities. Our 4 1/2 year old granddaughter loves this and can watch episodes over and over again. The stories encourage speaking up, to find "The Map", to identify items in the "Backpack, backpack" even if the show is not completely interactive, the child thinks she is really participating in the exploration. The story lines are many times somewhat similar, although the colorful lakes and rivers and trees change, but I think it is reassuring to a little girl to be comfortable with the progress Dora makes as she travels along with her friends, and to have recurring characters who are somewhat challenging, but who are not threatening or violent (swiper,swiper).

When my sons were little, they all went through a phase of loving Dora the Explorer, going from about 2 to 6 years old, except for my middle son who is mentally challenged and didn't understand Dora (or any other toddler cartoon) until he was 8, when he started loving it. He is now 12 and works out on the treadmill. I stream the Dora show because I have Amazon prime, and he enjoys it so much that he begs to work out longer after the half hour workout, so now he works out an hour a day, and is happy every minute of it! Nice!

The Amazon Prime video thing is working out really nicely for my kids. I don't normally watch TV, and we do have satellite so we don't really need the prime videos, but it's nice to have a library of kid shows on hand to entertain kids when necessary.
