Children's TV star, Dora the Explorer, is at the center of a huge row this morning, after being criticised by parents about never changing her clothes.
Dora, who shot to stardom in 2000, has always worn a pink T-shirt, orange shorts, yellow ankle socks, and white training shoes with a pink sole-trim. She carries a purple backpack.
The thing is, despite being popular, she could try to change her attire at least once in a while, but never does.
Dora hails from Spain, where it is hot, and where a frequent change of clothing - say, once a week - wouldn't hurt. For her to wear the same togs for 18 years, is stretching things just a bit, say the parents of children who are Dora's biggest fans. Those same children are now also refusing to change their clothes.
One parent, Mariella Twerp, whose daughter, Beyoncé-Lambchops, is a Dora fan, said:
"I think Dora is a poor role model for girls. She should have a selection of clothes to change into, not just one rig-out! She's so working class."
And another, Rosetta Bumptious, told us:
"My daughter, Candiss Sweetie-Pie, is just like Dora! She's adorable, but she never changes her underwear - and she's 23 now, for goodness' sake!"
Roxy Farquharson, whose 8-year-old twins, Edwin and Edwina, both 'worship' Dora, said:
"You'd think that, working in TV, and rolling in cash, Dora would be able to present a better image to her fans, and splash out on some gowns, but no, she just doesn't seem to care what people think of her."
