A few weeks ago Lexi and Anna received Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Enchanted Forest Adventures and Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Storybook Adventures, to review on DVD. Both girls are huge Dora fans and have seen almost every single episode, which is why I was so excited to review some we hadn’t seen before.
The girls loved all of the DVD’s but I think both the Enchanted Forest Adventures and Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom won the most viewed in a one week period award! Even I will admit (even though I am really starting to loath the “We did it song” and am coming close to never buying a pair of “boots” again) that I actually enjoy Dora’s Enchanted Forest Adventures! The colors are oh so pretty, there is a UNICORN in every episode, and it’s a fresh new exciting place for Dora to do what she does best. I also love the lessons that these episodes teach. Topics Dora touches on include leadership, good character skills, friendship, and so much more. This DVD is definitely my favorite one (okay the only one I like).
So by now you may be wondering if I have issues with Dora. Well, I don’t! Really, my issue is actually with my daughters and their obsession with the show. When my boys were little, they liked a little of everything. The girls… Not so much. Anna’s third word was Dora. – Seriously! They love this show to death and I have been watching it EVERY day for the past 2 years. So sometimes I get slightly annoyed when I hear the theme song lol. BUT I will continue to buy the gear, toys, and movies because they make my girls happy, and they could be watching even more annoying shows…like Max and Ruby .
Seriously though, I am so glad Nick Jr. came out with a new and exciting DVD. We love the songs and the lessons.

The new Dora’s Storybook Adventures Box Set will make a great Christmas gift for the Dora lover in your family, so go ahead and grab a few today! The girls loved Dora Saves The Crystal Kingdom because of the adorable butterfly wings and overall cuteness of the movie. They had already seen the other two shows on Nick Jr. so they didn’t start asking to watch those until about a week after we got the DVD’s, but have continued to watch all of them weekly!
“Dora’s Fairytale Adventure”: Once upon a time, Dora and Boots went exploring in Fairytale Land. But when a mean witch turns Boots into Sleeping Boots, Dora needs your help to become la Princesa Dora! When Boots eats an enchanted banana and falls under a mean witch’s spell, Dora must set out on her toughest adventure yet – she must become a true princess to save Sleeping Boots. Help her find the Dragon’s Red Ring, teach the Giant’s rocks to sing, turn winter into spring, and bring the moon to the Queen and King – all while watching out for that witch!
“Dora Saves The Crystal Kingdom”: Dora and Boots are in her backyard looking up at the stars. They see a dragon, a castle, and some beautiful crystal constellations. “They look just like your crystal, Dora,” says Boots. Suddenly, the crystal constellations, Dora’s necklace, and even her storybook begin to glow. The storybook’s pages turn, magically stopping on the Crystal Kingdom story. What will happen next.
“Dora Saves The Snow Princess”: It’s “Dora The Explorer” in her biggest DVD release of 2008! “Dora Saves The Snow Princess” is an all-new, movie-length adventure, available only on DVD! In this adventure, Dora, Boots and the Snowflake Fairy are off to save La Princessa Sabrina and her snowy forest from a mean witch who has locked her in a tower and taken away her magic snow crystal.
