Now we have to admit, beneath all the media and consumer based products, we actually rather like Dora. Don't get us wrong, we don't enjoy watching the same episode until we know it by heart, but we have a soft spot for the bilingual girl and her monkey. This year she turns 10 and big name celebrities have come out to design backpacks in her honor and they're going for big (big) bucks. The backpacks above are being bid on at Charity Buzz with all proceeds going to the Children’s Defense Fund under Nickelodeon’s “Beyond the Backpack Campaign.” The bidding starts at $500 and goes up from there (in $500 increments of course!). Obviously these aren't works of art your kids will be slinging to and from school each day, but it's still fun to see what each celebrity designer came up with based on few simple pieces of artwork.
Under each backpack above is the photo of which celebrity designed it. Check out the full list at Babble. There are finds for girls and boys, but all around we think it's fun to see what each one came up with! Which one is your favorite?
