Dora Dil-Emma

So, Emma go the "I know your name" Dora the Explorer doll. This is a cool doll, because you insert a cd into your pc and program Dora to know your childs name, favorite everything, wakeup time, betime, stories, songs, etc.

Here's the problem. Isabel loves this doll, and Emma really doesn't really play with it much. Last night Isabel slept with the doll and woke up this morning with it. I told Emma to take the doll to her room. At that point Isabel through a total fit saying "mine,mine". Of course, Emma nags her on saying "no mine".

So here's the dilemma, Do I buy Isabel the doll ($40), just let her play with Emma's (It say's Good morning Emma! and other stuff), or reprogram the doll to say Isabel's name? Cast your votes now.

I would ask Emma if she wants the doll or not, maybe ask her if she would like to give it to her sister and she can go to the store and pick out a new toy. With the understanding DORA will NOT be her doll anymore.

I don't know it's just a thought.

That's a pickle!
I like Kili's solution.
Esp. if you are considering buying a new one. Maybe Emma would like a different toy and you would then not have two Dora's and it would end the bickering.
