A Small Call for Help

Vivi received a Dora the Explorer bath set for her birthday. It comes complete with a waterproof Dora in a bathing suit, and her twin siblings in an inner tube.

After her bath the other day, we were cleaning out the toys from the bathtub, (I honestly don’t know how she fits in there with them) and she picked up the twins.

Vivi: “Mommy, What’s there names?”

Me: “I don’t know, maybe Daddy knows?”

Vivi, holding up the toy: Daddy, What’s their names?”

Matt looks on the box it came in: “The box just says twins.”

Vivi: “Mommy, Daddy say no.”

Me: Ok, I bet I know who knows, lets ask Emmy.”

Recently, Emerson was in big trouble and was being punished. She was allowed to watch TV, but only shows that Vivi wanted to watch. So, she’s seen her fair share of Dora (not to mention Wa Wa Wobzie, Little Bill, and Max and Ruby)

Me: “Hey Em, what are the names of Dora’s brother and sister?”

Emerson: “I don’t think they have names.”

WHAT? What do mean “They don’t have names”??!!!! They have to have names!!!!

I look it up on the internet.

The only thing I can find is that some one said their names were Knee Sock and Backpack.

That doesn’t make any sense, which one is which. I can only assume that the boy is Backpack (It just sounds more masculine) But isn’t that the name of the actual Backpack on the show? Was the child named in honor of the backpack?

And what about Knee Sock? Is that one word or two? And is that a shout out to Boots the monkey?

So here is my plea, most of you who read this have children and I’m sure you’ve seen Dora (about a zillion times) so…

You know what Honey? I don't think the names were ever given!! My Bella is a HUGE Dora fan and they are always referred to as "the twins". If I were you, I'd just make something up and sound like you're sure about it!

If I find anything out, I'll let you know!!

And thank you for the bloggy love today!

I don't have kids, but I love looking things up on the internet. Many people have asked the question "What are the twins' names" and it appears they have no names. Read this shortish article about Dora, and all the characters, down at the end it mentions the introduction of the twins.

Dora's twin baby brother and sister names are Guillermo and Isabella according to IMDB

My sister has twins and they geeked out over Dora's twins, Bella mostly because the girl is Isabella. Intense Guy was right, the boy is Guillermo.
