Do your kids watch Dora the Explorer? It has been a staple in our home for almost half a decade. Right about the time my son outgrew it, my youngest child began requesting it. While Dora is not in my list of favorites, it’s certainly not the worst program out there for children. (That’s a title reserved eternally for Yo Gabba Gabba.)

There’s nothing worse than sitting in a business meeting surrounded by your colleagues and realizing that you have to make a conscious effort not to hum “Backpack! Backpack!”

They’ve brought Dora to life in a Laura Croft-like action film starring Modern Family actress Ariel Winter. Bonus! Diego makes an appearance in the trailer as well.
