Or kids can press the number buttons to learn the numbers and count starfish. The three games in Game mode ask kids to find missing letters, match capital and lowercase letters, and help Dora find Swiper. In Music mode, kids can select one of 10 melodies, then dance along with Dora and Boots. Kids can also press the Message button to receive a virtual message from Dora or one of her friends. Type a reply using the letter buttons and press the OK button to send it.
