I’ve written before about how it is almost impossible to find secondary Dora characters in toy stores. Here’s a picture of our local Toys R Us’s Dora section. Despite the fact that Boots is Dora’s co-star, not a single Boots figurine could be found– not to mention the missing Benny the Bull, Isa the Iguana, Tico the Squirrel and Swiper the Fox.
To make matters worse, the one item that DID include a picture of Boots on the packaging was misleading. Doesn’t it look like this bag contains a Boots Monkey?
How could you make a bag with Boots so blatantly displayed and then not include him? The bag contained a Dora doll and that was about it. WTF?
Let’s get more Boots in the toy stores. I know he’s available online and that’s great, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who does most of my toy-buying the old-fashioned way. Boots deserves at least 1/4 of the space on the shelves that Dora has, but he’s completely missing. Seriously, toy stores, WTF?
