I'm sure you've all heard/seen the news about Dora the Explorer "growing up". Now, I personally have no issue with her growing up a bit. I mean, how long have The Simpsons been kids? But...well, take a look at before and after
Here's my problem with her new look. Maybe this will all get explained when they "update" her show, but her name is Dora the EXPLORER, so tell me how is she supposed to explore the jungles wearing that? Looks more like she's gonna be exploring the malls. Also, where is the backpack and the other essential Dora accentuation? Having said that, though. I can imagine there will be new stuff she'll have.
My niece is no fan of this new look. She actually cried when she saw this. It's like they've made Dora in the mold of Hannah Montana and every other tween star. Can't they just leave stuff alone? I wonder what this new Dora will bring to the table, though. Only time will tell, I suppose.
In the meantime, I guess little girls will be stuck between both versions. From my understanding, they're keeping the original Dora as well as this new one. So, which do you prefer? Me, I'm old school, so give me original Dora.
