Is anybody else upset that Dora is getting a makeover?

I heard news recently that Dora The Explorer is getting a makeover. Is she going to be the next Bratz? God i hope not! My girl loves Dora and i don't want her to become the next $lut!

As a mother of 3 boys, I was disappointed to see the change in Dora. I liked that Dora was independent and capable without having a boy being seen as incapable and/or stupid. I hope they keep her innocent and not sexual. There's way too much of that already!!

Quoting Megan:



i'm sure they'll continue dora while running the new older version. it'll be like rugrats and rugrats all growed up. :)





I hope your right. Though Rugrats I don't much like anyway.. Angelica really gets to me. lol!

The new dora doesn't look too bad. I hope they change her voice because that's what annoyed me most of all!

My son loves Dora and Diego!  I hope they do a good job and don't mess it up.  I think the best character grow up I've seen has been in the cartoon series Ben 10 and it's follower Ben 10 Alien force.  My brother in law used to watch it, and I recently ran across the new version and they did a good job with maturing the main character.  But I'm sad to see them change Dora...I think she should be there for future kids!  I'll cross my fingers it works well...

I totally agree, I cant stand the bratz dolls and the image they represent.
Let the kids be kids and not make them grow up too quickly

OMG THAT IS SOOOOOO NOT RIGHT DORA IS FOR TODDLER GIRLS....BRATZ ARE WHAT THEY SAY THEY ARE BRATZ...DORA IS NOT..I DONT SEE HOW DORA AND THE BRATZ HAVE ANYTHING IN COMMON...I WILL BE SOOOOOO MAD

That's my one biggest fear is that they are going to skank her up, like those dreaded Bratz dolls. My girl doesn't need more pressure to be sexy! She's going to get that pressure when she's a teen, let her be a kid for a little longer. I think kids aren't being allowed to be kids anymore and it makes me sad.

I don't understand why she needs a makeover! Do we really want our children to have roll models that are sexy?

I agree



I don't think they should change childrens shows, But apparently they think they have to have
the cartoon charector grow up too.
