santa vaca dora!

apparently there has been some hub bub in the media about dora the explorer's new look. the article that i read online listed some of the complaints from parents against the tween dora doll.
"dora the street walker"
"a sexed up version of a children's icon"
"a poor example for kids"

are you intrigued yet as to what they've done to dora?

SANTA VACA DORA! you look like a typical 10 year old girl with long hair and cute clothes!!! for shame! i'll never let my daughter play with her now. i can't having her believe that anyone ever grows up!

seriously folks, if we are concerned about a new tween dora with no visible pubescent changes, a covered naval and zero make up, shouldn't we be burning the BRATZ dolls at the stake?

who are the BRATZ dolls being marketed to, tramps in training? the future "pretty women" of the world?

who is supposed to play with these heavily made up, botoxed, lip-injected, alien-faced wastes of good plastic? they've has so much plastic surgery that michael jackson is jealous of their non-existent noses. BRATZ dolls look like VH1's rock of love bus wannabes.
and as for barbie, while she may be quite voluptuous, she still looks employable. barbie has been a vet, an ice cream shop owner, an astronaut, a figure skater, and has served all 4 branches of the military, just to name a few occupations. at least barbie conveys the message that girls can have any occupation they want.
BRATZ are what we really should be in an uproar about. leave dora alone.

I wasn't so sure about the "new" Dora until I actually saw a picture. I think I actually like her better now. I really despised that the old Dora's shirt was too small for her. Could her mom not find it in a larger size?
And Blech on the Bratz dolls. I can't stand My scene either.

I remember the first time I saw a BRATZ doll in Target. I was so disgusted. I think the new Dora is cute and I read some articles about how parents are concerned that the new Dora is going to project the importance of fashion,shopping, and make-up instead of what she does now (what does she do?I have never seen the show.Lydia isn't old enough to get Dora yet) but don't parents realize that tweens are into that stuff anyways regardless.
