Dora the Explorer's Controversial Growth Spurt

There is a lot of hoopla about Dora becoming a Tween, and I kinda agree, Nickelodeon and Mattel must be off their rockers. How do you change the main character of a big business venture? Dora the Explorer is everywhere, little girls look up to her. The biggest problem for the women of "The View" is that new version has nothing representing the explorer we have grown to love. She has ballerina shoes and no more backpack. They suggested having her as a separate character like Skipper was to Barbie, and they called her Kora the Horror or Hoe-rer. Joy Behar said one great thing about her going from Ellen DeGeneres to Portie deRossi. I agree, they should have her as a separate character if they wanted to hit the tween market.
