Both DD and DS love watching it.

Dora is well behaved and never gives up

she doesn't get herself into a pickle due to get own bad behaviour (yes Thomas the Tank Engine I'm looking at you)

she doesn't hold a grudge

she had helped DS's problem solving

the 'we did it' song is so catchy

Yes I suspect I need to get out more wink wink

YABU because she shouts all the bloody time!

Yes Dora, it is great that you found the 5 bananas but could you please talk about it at a lower pitch?

Have you taken 50 Shades too literally and become a masocist?

Either that or you've not encountered the Singing Gate yet.

I handed down my daughter's Dora DVDs with a wicked chuckle to a poor unsuspecting victim at work who thanked me profusely, "oh XXXX loves Dora, and I do too, it's fun but soooooo educational".

Say it with me, in that whiny shriek of a voice, over and over and over and over and over and over and over......arrrrrgh!!!!

I love Dora!
4 year old DD knows all her colours in Spanish thanks to Dora and it's great that there is a TV programme with a female lead character that isn't drippy or princessy. DS1 loves it too.

I fecking hate 'the map' though.

I love Dora and her independent awesomeness grin

Dd1 is fond of her too wink

It's great - 4YO DS and 2YO DD love her.

I also think having a capable, non-frilly female lead in a formative-years children's show is great.
