Crazy as it may sound, my daughter loves to pretend to be Diego while I pretend to be Dora. Whenever we're in character, she listens to EVERYTHING I tell her to do, and does it immediately! "Get into the tub, Diego!", "Eat your dinner, Diego!", "Put your pajamas on, Diego!" All commands are met with her IMMEDIATELY responding, "OK, Dora!" Now, I play pretend with her all the time!
