Dora the Knocked Up Teen Explorer

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This
Dora has recently gone through an extreme makeover from kid to tween. Are her teen years far behind?

It happened to Barbie when she got mid-life tramp stamp at 50. And now Dora the Explorer has gone through her own transformation from kid to tween. Some moms have voiced disapproval. Watch out. It might not stop there. What if Nickelodeon rolls out an even older teenage Dora? As we all know the teen years can be rocky. Especially if you're gallivanting all over the world with a monkey who doesn't wear pants.

And then what would happen if Dora got pregnant? According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, teen pregnancy is on the rise. You don't have to look any further than Jaimie-Lynn Spears or Bristol Palin for evidence of the Juno Effect. But how on earth would Dora support herself? Don't ask Diego for help. He probably wouldn't be the baby daddy anyway since they're cousins. That leaves Tico, Benny, the Map or Swiper. Honestly, would you trust your daughter alone with that sneaky fox? "Swiper, 'no' means no!!"

Could this possibly be Dora of the future? Gosh, we hope not.

she is a cartoon, why in the world would she drink get pregnant and be on welfare. people sometimes have no clue on what they r talking about. i would like it if dora changed. she can teach tweens how to care for other stuff besides having the best clothing make up. but most of all remember dora is a cartoon …..

You people really need to relax! Can you not see that this was done tongue-in-cheek? As far as racist, was not Barbie mentioned along with her “tramp stamp”? Then I guess every race must have been offended by that remark! Doesn’t Barbie come in all races?
Take it easy friends. It’s just in fun. There are a lot more important things that our children will be exposed to that we, as responsible parents, should be concerned with.

There is nothing wrong with the tween Dora, i dont know where people are getting that she is wearing a trashy shirt in anyway. All these people that dont like the new Dora, how many of you have kids and how many of your kids have a BRATS doll???…Worry about them playin with those dolls b4 you worry about Dora!!

First of all, it is not the kids that will be affected at all. Kids are the innocent ones, it is the adults that make situations more than what they are to the kids. C’mon…moms & dads they are learning in the home first. Just because society prints what is real does not mean we have to live that way. Everyone has their own walks of life. A lot of kids don’t even know who Dora is, why? Because their parents don’t allow them to watch it. At that age if your kids are watching Dora, you still have control of them….I would certainly hope so!!!

whoevever wrote this artical is going to far. nickelodean has many shows that are appropreate for children. my 4 year old cousin loves spongebob .and he dora. chill if they make a show of the new dora let’s how it’s going to beand then we comment if it IS really bad. i understand parents don’t like it but she’s here so DEAL WITH IT!it’s going be the way the person who wrote this artical thinks!

seriously? April 10, 2009, 8:52 PM

just wondering…is this serious dora is adorable and yes, small dora will be on tv, this is horrible a racist, inm SO glad you have so much time on your hands.. honestly do you think dora will be pregnant.. no so just stop. plus this show is going to be about tween girls solving mysteries, and learning more spanish and accomplishing their goals, taking on the world. wouldnt you rather that then just some trash barbie with tatoos and boyfriends and shopping pointlesssly?

Parents are over reacting dora has stayed 8 or 9 for years she needs to grow up because the kids that used to watch her grow up too. its only reasonable for her to get older.

also i have to say the image is quite racist i mean just cuz shes spanish doesnt mean she’ll get knocked up do drugs welfare drink.(news flash kids when they get older will get expose to these things on their own nd not by dora.)

im defending the image and i dont even like this show.
