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.

Couldn’t you just left it at Dora getting pregnant? Why add insult to injury by implying that because she (yes even though fictional) is Latina she would be on welfare and would be a bad mother by smoking and drinking? Bad joke.

Why not both? (No, I am referring to the pregnant Dora)

Why not still have “classic Dora” for the younger kids and “tween dora” for older kids? Nickelodeon would certainly would not be the first company to do that. It would not offend people that love the original but may attract new viewers / customers to have something targeted at older kids.

My 6 year old still loves Dora and she is about to turn 7. My other daughter did outgrow her by then but I guess it depends on the kid.

my kid grew out of her the dora aged girls are now getting older therefore they are trying to appeal to that growing age of child its called advertisment bc the are trying to compete with Hannah Monatana and now my 4 yr old is a fan of her, so this could be a good thing she’ll watch a big girl dora rather than a “baby”

I went to the dora tennager website and its perfectly still good for little kids.

Just because Dora grew up a bit does not make her a trampy role model for your child. She is still responsible and loving and able to teach your child spanish. The simple fact is that kids respect other kids based on age- a four year old leading children through a televised forest will have less of an audience than a tween doing the same thing. Kids just admire tweens and teens based on their experiences. Moreover, that Photoshopped image is rude and disrespectful, the exact opposite of the behavior that we want our children to learn. By the way, I am seventeen and will be graduating high school this year- and will be going to college to study education. Don’t assume I’ll get pregnant just because I’m underage- more bad role modeling.

when she grows, she will only be 5 yrs older, which makes her 10. its not that serious, and i think it is very racist bcuz u put welfare next to dora because she is latina. its not cute nor funny to do something so sick. i think that its not tht serious bcuz she wants to but a little spurse maybe to put cookies in or something? get a life. really.

she is a beast we need a dora like this.

chellicakes January 25, 2010, 8:47 PM

umm…. i think the teenage dora would be a great idea! forget what u guys say :) i liked “all grown up” so i definatley will like teenage Dora :) well, im 15, and i do admit, i still like Dora and Diego, and it would be great if they grow up because she’ll be closer to our crowd, and plus little kids can grow up with her, and Dora will teach them new things… (wrong from right) trust me :) GREAT IDEA!!! but yeah, they should have introduced her as a cousin because kid Dora will be missed :(
