If your child is a Dora the Explorer fan, one of these Dora products will be a big hit. What better to accompany an important exploration, whether in the darkest jungle or under the kitchen table, than a flashlight or a lantern?
And who better to accompany you on your expedition than good ol' Dora?
The first kit includes both a Dora flashlight and a Dora camera. The camera, which has no batteries, calls for 35mm film, something that is becoming harder and harder to find at your local store and something that is rather pricey to develop, especially when you know half of the photos will most likely be of someone's foot or the dog's teeth.
But if you "forget" to put in film, your child can still have a lot of fun focusing through the lens finder and clicking to her heart's content.
I've added these two lanterns for your consideration as well. The Dora the Explorer lantern is an alternative to the kit mentioned above. Child-sized, it will travel easily with your little explorer on all her adventures.
If Thomas the Tank Engine is more your child's speed, here's a Thomas lantern that may do the trick. Thomas is well known among young train lovers.
Both lanterns take 4 AA batteries.
