Dora's listening skills


(this picture has nothing to do with this post but it's pretty much how she looked during the conversation)

While watching Dora the Explorer during "rest time" today:

DORA: Will you help us get on the boardwalk by climbing up this ladder?
SYD: No, I want to go up the stairs. Where are the stairs?
DORA: Okay great, thanks for helping.
SYD: No, use the stairs!
DORA: Now put your hands up in the air...
SYD: NOOO!!!
Dora: ... and climb, climb, climb
SYD: *sigh* I SAID use the stairs.

Sorry, hun, Dora can't hear you, & even if she could Dora doesn't strike me as a very good listener. She likes the sound of her own voice a little too much.

I love it! I have some little cousins who detest Dora for that very same reason. They want her to be more interactive with them.

I can't believe how rude Dora is. She asks Syd for her input but gives her the brush-off as if she doesn't care what Syd's input is! Syd would be a much better listener -- Syd the Explorer.
