Dora and the crystal kingdom 

My boys love Dora and Diego and they were super excited to receive “Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom” on DVD! I love that there is singing and engaging activities, as well as learning a few Spanish words here and there. My boys love it and sing along with it. They even answer questions that Dora asks them!

Nickelodeon released “Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom” on DVD on September 22nd, 2009.  You’ll love this feature-length adventure full of music and fun with Dora the Explorer,” a never-before-seen title episode.  Along with this feature are two additional adventures from the top-rated preschool series. 

In Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom, Dora continues her magical storybook adventure from last fall (“Dora Saves the Snow Princess”), when the magic crystal that the Snow Princess gave her brings to life another character in her storybook – Allie of the Crystal Kingdom.  A greedy king has stolen the crystals that give Allie’s kingdom color.  Dora and Boots must help Allie locate the crystals and turn the pale gray kingdom back into a colorful wonderland before it’s too late.

  100. Darcy says:

    Dora is a familiar name in our home. I have two daughters, Helen, age 4, and Emily, age 2. They watch Dora almost every day, and they own a dozen Dora DVD’s, several Dora books, and lots of Dora toys. Dora has taught both of them important lessons, and has introduced their young minds to Spanish. Winning this DVD would be a thrill to them. Even if they don’t win it, I will buy it for them for Christmas.
