The Dora Link is a teenage version of the super-hit toy, Dora The Explorer. This doll from Fisher Price offers children a chance to have fun while being educated. This doll also allows children to have interactive fun with numerous exciting online opportunities. The doll is very convenient to deal with as suggested by its dimensions of 4 x 3 x 13 inches.

Girls can enter Dora’s online world by connecting the dolls to the USB ports of their computer. They can, through making changes in Dora’s world, assist Dora and the Explorer Girls in navigating to and unraveling online mysteries. Girls can also provide Dora with the disguise they find most suited to her and change her hair length, eye color, and jewelry as they wish. With this interactive feature, you can discover new locations, get in touch with new friends, receive D-mail and be a part of charity and community functions.

The Dora Link doll even notifies you of the availability of new online mysteries. Another attractive feature of this doll is that similar to the original Dora, she also gets bilingual by interacting with kids in Spanish. This provides kids with a chance to develop a grip on a foreign language. The Dora Link doll is recommended for girls between the ages of 5 and 10. A doll stand, purse, USB cord, brush and shoes are available with the basic Dora Links doll. This doll will be particularly well-received by those girls who have tender feelings towards Dora The Explorer.

Considering the place Internet has in the lives of young girls, the Dora Link doll’s ability to take girls to the online world definitely gives her a clear advantage over other toys. Its educational qualities will interest parents and kids will find it very easy to carry the Dora Link around because of its small size and weight. This doll also promises to be a role model for girls, which further enhances its appeal.
