Very Loud!Sep 29, 2013
Dora fans will love this toy because it is cute. Dora's hair is rooted, but that is the only part of this doll that has any real play value. The monkey, Boots, is what makes this the cutest, but he is a hanger on. He doesn't do anything on his own. He can clasp Dora's hand or attach his skates to the front or back of Dora's skates to pull him along while Dora zooms around the room.
There are three settings on Dora, stop, dance, and free play. In free play, Dora talks and the music plays but she doesn't move. That's where the child can play with Dora by pushing her around on her wheels.
On the dance setting, Dora shouts, music plays then she spins around before shooting off across the room. Boots plays better when he's attached to Dora's skates than when he is holding her hand because the jerky motion of Dora when she takes off sends Boots whipping away and they both stop. When Dora hits an object she stops moving, but the very, very loud music keeps playing. If you turn her away from the object she does not take off again until the music stops and you push the button on her shoe to start all over again.
I can see this toy being fun for a day, then there's just not much to it. The fun part is watching them move on their own, so I can't see the free play part getting much action.
Dora comes with four AA batteries locked inside one shoe. You'll need a screwdriver to open the battery case, but the screws are secured to the lid so they won't Fall out and get lost, or swallowed. She stops when picked up so the batteries won't wear down if left on.
This is not a toy you want around on a Saturday morning when you're trying to sleep in. Or, the afternoon when you're tired of all the noise, or whatever. Or, any time I can possibly think of because it is LOUD!

Get some earplugs....Oct 03, 2013
By J. Arena
All in all, Dora and Boots Skate and Spin is adorable. They skate on their own (actually Boots just kind of hangs on) and also do some skating that your child will control manually. Be prepared to move the furniture back against the wall so there is room for these guys to move around, and also be prepared to endure some loud stuff. This is not a quiet toy. So, if you are hoping for something to keep your special someone busy on her/his own while you read or watch TV -- this isn't it. However, the pure entertainment value is worth it for as long as it lasts. Just be aware that entertainment can last a young child for a looooong time.
Update: 9/4/14 - Just to let you know that Skate & Spin Dora & Boots is still going strong and still a loved toy. It is often taken out to demonstrate to anyone who visits, and she is happy to gleefully run around in circles as Dora does her stuff. I'm amazed that it is still such a source of entertainment and fun!

Needs room to workSep 09, 2013
By C Collier
"2 oddest prime"
this toy is highly entertaining for many ages. The only big serious problem that this toy has is that it needs a lot of room to skate around. we had just moved into our new house. We have a fairly large size living room we're talking around 200 square feet roughly. We only have a sofa and a love seat against the wall so we have about a good 100 square feet circular room for this toy to skate and its still bangs into the wall and the sofa. It is very annoying but it does turn well it move too far forward and not far enough to utilize the space well.

Got and Kept Daughters AttentionNov 08, 2013
This product caught and kept my 6 year old daughter's attention, which is hard to do and she is not even a great fan of Dora. It's been about 8 days and she still plays with the toy.
Dora comes packaged in such a way it is frustrating to get out. As another reviewer noted, simply cut the wires on the bottom and everything will come out easily. The toy comes with batteries, so you can expect instant gratification. The build quality of the toy was surprisingly good and I believe it will hold up to serious use. I found the music volume acceptable (not unbearable) as it plays both music and Dora phrases by pressing a heart button on Dora.
The instructions say Dora should be used on a flat surface. The toy worked great on hardwood and not bad on low pile carpeting like an area rug. It was a little slower on low pile carpeting compared to wood of course. The instructions make sense to an adult, but do not easaily translate to a 6 year old in controlling the toy features. Though you can "make your own routines," the toy haas no memory and you cannot therefore play them back. Boots is not powered and relies upon Dora's power for movement and Dora can be used without Boots. Dora's helmet comes off. However, her skates do not- therefore, you cannot use Dora just as a doll. Not a deal breaker of course.
I would caution that this toy does need a lot of room (open space). A smaller room or a room with a lot of furniture may just end in frustration for your child. Other than that, it is an enjoyable toy.

Cute toy...Nov 08, 2013
By Tara Magaro
This was purchased as a gift for my niece, it's very cute. It does not work best on carpet, so I would recommend using it on hard wood or some other smoother surface.
