Now I am not on to get all hot and bothered about silly things like color playing a part in gender roles and thinking celebrities should have any effect on our children if we teach them well. But even I can see that this Dora doll is much "prettier" and "thinner" than the normal Dora the Explorer on television.

Should Dora's appearance as a doll or an interactive cyber creature change from the Dora kids know and love? Or do you think a major change in physical appearance, like this, is confusing for kids?
