Movie Reviews

A DIfferent--And Well-Done Dora.
Matthew J. Hiltner | 11/04/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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.

Dora's Christmas Carol a hit for my 3 and 6 yr olds

"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)."
Only contains one episode

"This is a double-length feature, and well-done. However, it is only this one episode, instead of the usual four, or in the case of double-length features, 2 bonus regular length episodes are included. The normal fee for 4 episodes (or 1 long and 2 shorts) seems to be in place though, and hence the reason for my low rating.

Wait for your library to get this one instead of purchasing it; not a good deal at all, IMHO.

"My granddaughter loves this Dora adventure. As usual it is a learning experience that she doesn't know is helping her with her language skills. She just enjoys the entertainment."
