I read an article about Dora the Explorer the other day. Nickelodeon has decided that little girls that grew up with Dora want her to age with them. According to a press release Dora is moving to the big city and starting middle school and this new Dora will be more "high fashion". OMG!
Why are these companies so persistent is changing what is good. Kady loved Dora when she was smaller and granted we have grown out of her now it's still crazy to me that other little girls won't have the authentic Dora the Explorer. The new Dora will debut Fall 2009.
Now all I need is Big Bird and Cookie Monster to decide to move out of Sesame Street and go to the hood to pursue their rap career.
