Kate is the most artistic and creative of the Explorer Girls. She is an artist, actress, and puppeteer. Kate often puts on her own puppet shows and makes all of the artwork for them herself, as shown in the episode "Kate Gives Puppets a Hand." She is also a skilled painter, as shown in the theme song for Dora and Friends.

She first appeared in "Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom." She later became a recurring character, appearing as one of the Explorer Girls in "Our First Concert" and Dora and Friends: Into the City!. She is voiced by Isabela Moner. Her younger self was voiced by Cassady Leonard.


Kate is an aspiring artist and performer who loves to draw pictures, tell stories, and perform in stage shows. The Nick Jr. website said: "Kate is artistic, dramatic, and has a colorful personality."

Kate first appeared in "Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom." In the episode, Dora, Boots, and Allie were on a quest to find the yellow crystal in the Dragon Land story. Suddenly, they saw a female knight who was finding a dragon using a sword. Dora got a rope from Backpack to take away the sword. The knight was amazed and the Dragon smiled. After that, Dora, Boots, and Allie learned that the knight's name was Kate. They asked Kate if they saw a crystal. Kate said "Alas, I have not," but the Dragon knew where it was. So, Dora, Boots, and Allie got a dragon ride to find the crystal stuck on the cliff face. The Dragon used his fire breath to open the cliff face and release the crystal. The Dragon dove down so that they can catch the crystal. And that's how Dora, Boots, and Allie first met Kate.


Kate has red hair, blue eyes, and cream colored skin. Kate is usually seen in a sky blue dress with purple edging, a periwinkle undershirt, purple leggings, and lavender and white shoes.

In Explorer Girls, she wore a periwinkle short-sleeved dress, red and green bracelets, blue capris, and pink shoes.

In Our First Concert, she wore a blue jean jacket with a teal collar and cuffs, red badge, her periwinkle undershirt, a necklace with red and green beads, the bracelets from Explorer Girls, a blue and periwinkle striped skirt, purple leggings, and pink boots.
