Dora the Explorer Grows Up
I heard today that Dora the Explorer has grown up and changed her image. Some mothers seem to be very upset about this. After reading a little about it I'm kind of glad. Robyn was a baby when Dora came out. She loved that show and from time to time I catch her watching it. Garrett always teases her for watching such a "baby" show. I'm glad that Dora will be growing along with Robyn.
Dora will be focusing on "pro-social themes -- like volunteerism, water conservation, or planting trees to help the environment." This is exactly the type of stuff that interests my 9 year old and I'm thrilled that Dora is not as trashy as the Bratz dolls that are banned from our home.
