Damn You, Dora!

September 12, 2008

The Big One is obsessed with fire trucks and Dora. So when we hit the jackpot and found a Dora episode about fire trucks we were in three-year-old heaven.

The problem with the particular episode of Dora is when Dora dons her firefighter gear along with Boots, they were yellow fire hats. Now any of you with small children know that most fire hats that you find at fairs, safety events are expos are red. Since we are fair and festival junkies, we have a plethora of red fire hats.

The Big one had never had a problem putting on the red fire hats and pretending to be a firefighter. She grabs her “doctor kit” and helps people, just like a fire fighter would. She checks her babies temperature, their eyes, their reflexes and gives them shots all while wearing her red fire hat.

Now that that damn Dora was wearing a yellow fire hat, we are toast. Somehow the red ones are no longer acceptable. “But Dora wears a yellow one…” is all I hear when she wants to play fire fighter.

Anyone know where I can find a yellow fire hat?

    Spray paint is way too much work. Have I told about the time we spray-painted the classic Little Tikes yellow/red car?

    Thanks, Marianne. Great tip!

    I do not know where to get a yellow firefighter hat.
    I do utter the phrase, “damn you, Dora” on a daily basis lately.
    Have you seen the “seasons” episode? When Dora enters winter, you meet the grizzly SNOWBEAR. My 2 yr old has been visited by snowbear on and off during the night for weeks now, and I need some freaking sleep!
