Wonder Baby Powers, activate! Form of…mechanic to Dora the Explorer.She decided that her Dora car needed to be fixed, so she flipped it over, got out her tools (yes, it’s a hammer in her right hand; who knows when you’ll need to pound on something?), and went to work. It’s good news that she likes to take care of things, and doesn’t mind working to fix her own car.When I asked why her car
