Dora the Explorer teaches more than just 'rojo' and 'nos fuimos!'

Filed under: Development/Milestones: Babies, Media

momster and her boysBefore Dora the Explorer started her TV-sized campaign to teach Momster's preschoolers everything there is to know? Her boys were still searching for "articulate and eloquent sentences." Now, however, they say things like "the sun is going to set without delay," and "oh no, my Miffy is stuck in a rut!"

I laughed because Everett, too, has learned far more than the Spanish word for "blue" from Dora. He says things like, "is the grumpy old troll under that bridge?" and looks for the map which "will tell us how to get there!" Has Dora (or her friends) taught your preschooler any quixotically brilliant phrasing?
