Another great Dora DVD!Oct 05, 2009
By Amy Phipps
My 2 year-old daughter and I couldn't wait for this one to make it to TV, so we borrowed it from our library, and I'm sure glad we did! In the double-length title episode, Dora is once again on a storybook adventure, this time helping to preserve the Crystal Kingdom's beautiful colors by retrieving its four magic crystals from a greedy king. This episode put a lot of emphasis on sharing, always a popular theme for the preschool crowd, and followed the usual format and the same old, beloved cast of characters. My daughter was really excited when the Snow Princess made a few brief appearances, while I greatly enjoyed Richard Kind (Paul from Spin City) doing the voice of the greedy king. I did have to roll my eyes when Dora and Boots got butterfly wings, envisioning the inevitable marketing of butterfly-winged Dora dolls for Christmas, but as my daughter thought that part was "awesome" I guess I can't complain too much.
The other two adventures included on this DVD are both great episodes too - one about Boots and Tico's first day of school, and the other a King Midas-like tale about a wish machine that makes bananas drop on Boots' head every time he says "bananas." Overall, a great, fun new Dora DVD!

We were on a family vacation and Dora not only "SAves the Crystal Kingdom" she allowed us to get the much needed sleep we needed for traveling.
My 2 year old's FAVORITE!Jan 18, 2013
By Reese Ana
I have watched this DVD in its entirety and I am very pleased with the cute songs, colorful outfits, and songs. My daughter can watch this DVD over and over again. If you're trying to make a decision on which Dora movies to get, this one is a winner!
Dora Saves the Crystal KingdomJan 07, 2013
I bought this DVD for my 3 year old daughter for Christmas 2012. Here are my thoughts.
The DVD itself: The number of commercials on the disc is pretty over-the-top. You can't jump straight to the menu, so you have to skip each commercial one-by-one every time you put the disc in. Kind of annoying. The disc holds 3 full Dora episodes: Crystal Kingdom, First Day of School, and Boots' Banana Wish. I wish they used the remaining disc space for an additional episode, rather than advertising for pretty much every preschool DVD Nick has ever released.
Crystal Kingdom: This story is unlike typical Dora episodes, as its full of magic. In a nutshell, the Crystal Kingdom is a story in Dora's book. The greedy king steals the magic crystals that put all the color into the world, and Dora & Boots go into the story to save the day. The crystals are hidden among different stories in the book, and they have to travel through each one to retrieve them. In the end, they find all the crystals and the King learns not to be so greedy.
I like that the story still has a moral, even though its packed full of princesses, dragons, magic butterfly wings etc.
My 3 year old's review of the story: "DoraBoots save the crystals in Ally's bag to fix the rainbows" :)
First Day of School: This has become my daughter's favorite Dora episode. I feel its more educational than your average episode, it teaches many more Spanish phrases. Tico the Squirrel is with Dora & Boots the entire time. When they get to school, they sing a bilingual song about introducing yourself.
Boots' Banana Wish: In this story, Boots using a wishing machine to wish for bananas. As a result, every time he says "bananas", a bunch falls right on his head. The wishing machine breaks, so he can't reverse the wish. They spend the episode travelling to another wishing machine, with bananas falling on boots the whole time.
I like that this episode teaches kids to be careful what you wish for & to think things through.
Really Nice to Share!Dec 24, 2012

I have an only child who has a very hard time sharing things with other kids. I watched this episode with her and I think she "got it" that it is nice to share.
