Dora the Explorer Wiki

This is a list of the items Swiper tried to swipe, and whether he was stopped (failed to swipe the item), successfully swiped the item, or almost successfully swiped the item (handed it back).

Note that Swiper will fail to swipe the object if Dora asks the viewer to help stop him, usually saying "We have to say, 'Swiper, no swiping!'." If not, Dora will be "too late" to stop Swiper, and Swiper will successfully swipe the object and throw it to a location where he hopes Dora won't find it.

Five items that Swiper successfully swiped were swiped near the beginning, and Dora and Boots have to go on an entire adventure just to retrieve the object at the destination.

Note: All episodes are listed in production order.
