I received this email from a mom this week who wants to surprise her youngest child with Dora and Boots costumed characters.
But this time "Map" can't help her on her hunt. Here's what she wrote:
I am a mom of three, living in the small city of Roxboro. My youngest will be two on Aug. 5. She loves Dora. I try my hardest to make all my kids' birthdays a day to remember. I need to find a Dora and Boots for cheap prices. I have Googled it and looked at Craiglist. Nothing. Please help.
I have a few companies that offer costumed characters on Go Ask Mom's birthday database (though I'm not sure their casts includes Dora and Boots). If you have any advice for this mom, please share in the comments below.
