This super cute kid is having her third birthday next week. She is obsessed with Dora, so I was thrilled when Target asked me to blog about their annual Toy Sale because there’s a lot of Dora stuff on sale. We took Miss Two to have a look at what’s on offer just to get an idea of what she would like for her birthday. I do believe she thought she was in the most fantastical, super amazing place in the entire universe.

There’s this really cool Barbie horse and stable that I know Miss 4 will adore as well as a Duplo castle. And Miss 6 would love anything animal, soft toy or craft related. There are so many cool toys.

But at the moment I am up to my neck in Dora. So first, I have to get my costume ready.


The dog* needs an outfit too.


And then I must bake a cake – a Dora cake.


I’m thinking that Dora may have
eaten the original cake.


I love birthdays.

Have you got a kid that’s obsessed with Dora?
