The Fisher-Price Sing Around the World Dora is a favorite toy around our house. The doll is average size for a doll and the perfect size for a toddler or young child to carry. My daughter loves this doll because she is easily able to make Dora sing by pressing her hand. Even at 18 months my daughter could sing along with Dora.
In addition to singing Dora has buttons on her shirt that make her say hello in several different languages. I personally don't think that my daughter is very interested in how to say hello when she is in Tanzania but just in case I guess she'll be prepared. Truly my daughter is only intersted in having Dora sing and gets annoyed when she accidently pushes a different button that stops the song and makes Dora talk instead.
This is not a doll to take along to somewhere that quiet is required but for everyday play it is a fun doll.
