So since they are going to "build" a sexy Dora Doll, I think we as Moms and Grandmoms should DEMAND a lifesize Severus Snape doll....anatomically correct. I bet this would rile up all the rich fat old executives who came up with that idea.

You want to sell sex? Bring it on, but keep it to the appropriate age group.

You people are all goofy. She is supposed to be a tween and she is drawn with about as little shape as the old dora... What makes this so horrible? Longer hair earrings? Ill tell all of you if your finding "sex" in a tween you are just sick.. Get a life and find something to worry about thats worth the effort.
