Dora Toys for Boys
Great ideas for Dora toys for boys
Dora is a superstar and it's not just girls who love this adventurer. Many young boys also love watching Dora. But most Dora toys are for girls. This makes it hard if you have a little boy who loves Dora.
There are some great Dora toys for boys though which are good for Christmas and birthday gifts or just as a special treat.
Swiper for Boys
"Swiper, no swiping! Swiper, no swiping! Swiper, no swiping!"
Swiper is that troublesome fox from the Dora series. Boys might like many of the Dora the Explorer range of toys in the Beanie Babies range (all available from Amazon). But Swiper is a safe choice if you're buying a gift and don't know which Dora characters the boy you're buying for likes. This is because he is the most "masculine" looking character with his spy mask. Another good choice for a Dora Beanie Baby for a boy is Diego.

Dora Wooden Puzzle
This 25 piece Dora puzzle is a fun choice for preschool boys.
The jungle theme showing Dora at her adventurous best is one of the better Dora puzzles for boys. Most of the other Dora puzzles available are very girly looking. Both in the choice of colors used and the topic of the Jigsaw.
A jungle theme is good for both boys and girls. Puzzles showing Dora with a butterfly or a unicorn aren't really gender neutral. The same goes for the color choices. Pinks and mauve coloring is less likely to appeal to a boy. So the bright jungle colors and topic of this puzzle are a much better choice for boys.
Dora Chutes and Ladders
Chutes and Ladders is a classic game that's good for both boys and girls. So it's one of the better picks of Dora toys for a boy.
The game is made so children don't need to do any reading to play. This means it's a good choice for the preschool age group. (The age group that is mostly interested in Dora.)
So this toy is a good match between the needs of game play for preschoolers that love Dora. As well as a classic board game design that suits both boys and girls. This means it's an excellent choice for a birthday or Christmas gift for a Dora fan who's a boy.

Dora the Pirate
This toy is only for the absolute Dora mad boy.
I included this in the boy's toys list because of the pirate theme. This set has a treasure set and cannon which makes it more fun for boys. It also includes a Dora figurine in a Pirate costume and Swiper so it's great for pretend play for a boy who loves Dora.
The reason why I think it's only for a boy who really, really, really loves Dora is because the only human figurine is Dora. A girl. For a boy who is Dora mad this will certainly not be a problem at all. But if a boy likes Dora but isn't Dora mad they might think the set is "for girls" and not for them. This would make other Pirate sets like the Playmobil Pirate Ship (available at Amazon) a far better choice.

Dora Uno Card Game
This is another classic game, like Chutes and Ladders, that's good for both girls and boys. Because the game has just been given a Dora theme and lacks the girly colors of many Dora toys it's a good choice for boys.
Like the Chutes and Ladders game this is also a game that has been made especially for preschoolers in that 'I love Dora" stage. So this isn't the normal Uno game. Instead it's an easy to learn version for younger children.
