Dora Marqez's New Look by t-lyo Dora Marqez's New Look by t-lyo
I know it's Crazy that i'm doing this But I wanted to do something out of the ordinary


Mattel and Nickelodeon have announced that Dora Marquez (A.K.A Dora The Explorer), will become a tween next fall, and will have a new electronic fashion doll line to match the new look.

"As tweenage Dora, our heroine has moved to the big city, attends middle school and has a whole new fashionable look," the companies announced in a February release titled "Dora Grows Up!"

"Girls really identify with Dora and we knew that girls would love to have their friend Dora grow up with them, and experience the new things that they were going through themselves," wrote Gina Sirard, vice president of marketing for Mattel.

While Dora's look will not be revealed until next fall, the companies released a silhouette of the newly aged character, who's trading in her signature tomboy shorts and short bob for longer locks and a short skirt.

One group of parents has started an online petition protesting the change. "What next? Dora the cheerleader? Dora the fashionista with stylish purse and stilettos?" the petition reads. "We can expect it all, because that's what passes as 'tween' in the toy department these days."
