:LOL I once took my kids to see a live Dora show and my ds was out of his mind when Swiper showed up. He stood up with his little star on a popsicle stick yelling at the top of his lungs, "SWIPER NO SWIPING SWIPER NO SWIPING SWIPER NO SWIPING!" People turned to look. :LOL Luckily they thought it was cute...and to be expected at a Dora show. Mine seem to be outgrowing Dora though.




I'm the MAP!

I want Dora stuff for me! I wish they made t-shirts in my size!

I love Dora. Dowa! Dowa! Dowa! (as my 2.5 yo calls her). I take my shower at 730 and that is when Dora comes on..that rocks!

Ya, it babysits my kids for 1/2 hour. I admit..

I thought my girls were Dora fanatics, nice to know I'm not alone. I like Dora though. My grils have learned ALOT from that show. And it's harmless far as I can tell. They LOVE to sing adn do that "we did it" dance. For Xmas my mon bought everything Dora she coudl get her hand one.
It's also the only thing that they will watch giving me as little peace. :

I have to say the best part of Dora is Boots!!! He is so cute!!! My dd got a Dora doll and a Boots doll for Xmas and she carries them around and calls both of them "Dora"

And whats the deal with cousin Diego?

Oh yeah, we have the cd too...its great in the car when we need a little calming down....

UGH!! The yelling, the repetition, and that ANNOYING MAP VOICE.... "I'm the meeeaaaaap!" And the whole video game quality the show has... the only thing I like about Dora is the trio of bugs that randomly show up and play music whenever they finish a challenge.

And what *is* with Diego? He probaby lip syncs in some cartoon boy band on the side, lol.

Diego?? I like him he's not as nasal as Dora... why does she have to scream everything and ask the kids to scream EVEN LOUDER?? like we can't hear her already!

I don't mind Diego, I just think it's funny how he's like some preteen cartoon hottie... :LOL Why is it that nobody else in Dora's family has a head shaped like a football?

I hate that the map has to repeat the route FOUR times...and then Dora has to go over it herself....AGAIN!

Briiiiidge, laaaake, twaallll mountain!
Briiiiidge, laaaake, twaallll mountain!
Briiiiidge, laaaake, twaallll mountain!
Briiiiidge, laaaake, TWAALLLL MOUNTAIN!


I have to admit, I kinda like the backpack's cute little scratchy voice and the way he says "yum yum yum yum yum.... delicioso!" :

We're fairly certain that Dora was raised in a steel foundry or some other kind of loud factory. She had to be, since she has to yell all the time to make sure that people can hear her.

Excellente!!!

I am convinced that Dora yells everything to compensate for her GIGANTIC head! And poor Boots (love that monkey!)...he yells because his hearing is shot from her constant screaming!!!!!!!
