Dora shops now, not so much exploring. So sad.

Dora the Explorer has been turned into a material girl.

"As tweenage Dora, our heroine has moved to the big city, attends middle school and has a whole new fashionable look...The cornerstone of the entire line is the Dora Links fashion doll. By plugging the doll into the computer, girls can access Dora’s brand-new interactive online world. This exciting innovation in computer-connected play offers girls a unique interactive experience: as girls are playing online they can customize their doll and watch as she magically transforms right before their eyes. For example, by changing Dora’s hair length, jewelry, and eye color on screen, the Dora doll magically changes as well.
The online world will include descriptions and biographies of Dora’s Explorer Girls™ and an immersive online world that will be tied into the complete collection of toys. Online, girls can explore Dora’s world, talk to the characters, earn currency, and help Dora solve mysteries which will be uploaded on a regular basis.

The Dora Links fashion doll, for children five years and up, will retail for approximately $59.99. "
