"A few little things could be better...
1st, Only one of the episodes is even remotely Christmas related, which is fine. But since the kids will want to watch the others for the rest of the year, and I can see being a little annoyed at watching the holiday episode in May, I think it would've been nice for this episode to be the last, or to have an option to play the others without this one.
Another thing I didn't care for was all of the advertisements at the beginning. I wonder if this really sells anything??? All we ever do is hit the search button several times to get through them all.
One wonderful thing about this DVD compared to other Dora DVD we have is that you CAN play all the episodes with just one button, instead of having to go into a sub-menu to get to the Bonus episodes (too much for a 2 year old to do on their own).
The Christmas episode is fine and fun to watch during the holidays. Two of the other three are fine, but the "Quack Quack" episode where Dora and Boots jump into a coloring book is a little strange... even my 3 year old thinks so. Not bad, just... not quite right. I wouldn't recommend this as a first Dora DVD (Meet Diego or Super Silly Fiesta, for example, are much better for overall content)."
Fun again with Dora

"This dvd offers four Dora cartoons, one of which being a Christmas themed episode. The Santa episode is very cute and sweet, one of the best Dora episodes I have seen! Even Swiper is a sweetie in this show! My three year old was enthralled with this dvd and asked to watch it repeatedly during the Christmas season. It is a great addition to our family dvd collection.
I do agree with another reviewer who wrote that the 'Quack Quack' episode is weird. I agree, it is definitely not one of the best. However, the Santa show was so great it makes up for the shortcomings of the other. :)"
Just 4 regular episodes...

"Only 1 episode (regular length) is Christmas related, and the other 3 are just regular Dora shows. With tivo, we have plenty of Dora episodes already recorded, so this really was just $12 for a short Dora Christmas show."
Christmas episode is good, but...

"The Christmas episode (yes, just one) is good, but I have to empathically agree with the other folks who think that "Quack, Quack" is weird. My kids just say "that's silly" and ignore that they're jumping into a coloring book world. In some shows, that wouldn't seem to be strange (in Magic School Bus, for example, that would be a very tame field trip), but for Dora it just seems "wrong". Anyway, the others are fine but not the best episodes. Our favorite Dora DVD remains "Meet Diego" because of the animal focus."
