Do you remember when I did a post about the gorgeous Corolle Doll, that Miss A received? Well as an early Christmas gift, her doll has just been sent a couple of new outfits to wear by the Petalina Website.
Whilst I was away, Miss A had a lovely new toy to play with. So I thought I would share some more details about it with you today.
It is the Chefs Choice by Hape : approx £21.99. Hape is one of the world’s largest producers of toys made from sustainable materials. Hape toys are definitely creatively designed and eco-friendly, what a fantastic combination! Miss A has loved playing with the set, and its been great addition to her wooden kitchen. Its incredibly well made, and because it has so many pieces (14) there are lots of different play possibilities. Some of the wooden pieces, have Velcro so she, really can pretend to cut, with the knife provided and put together a meal. So a fantastic toy to encourage great role play and creativity.
Hape products meet, and often, exceed the strictest international standards for quality and safety. But behind the innovative designs and meticulous quality lies the even stronger ethos of Hape.
From the beginning of the design process, through production and delivery, to the final unwrapping of the consumer packaging, Hape toys are a collaboration of global thinking and responsible ecology.
In addition to using particular materials and methods, Hape seeks out people who bring a new sensibility to the process. A collaboration of international and local employees creates a global corporate culture with a particular understanding and respect for the world in which we live. Sustainability, education, innovation and fun. Hape Toys represents the next generation of play.

We have been reviewing a really lovely toy this week. It’s time for a check-up with everyone’s favourite Disney doctor - Doc McStuffin! Use Doc McStuffins magical check up tools to make Lambie talk! Help Doc check Lambie’s heart, ears and temperature. Doc also chats and sings the catchy ‘time for Your Check-Up’ song.
The Disney Junior show Doc McStuffins itself has great positive role models, and is a one I would definitely recommend. It’s an animated show, and is the story of Dottie (Doc) a 6 year old girl, who heals stuffed toys and animals. Over the summer we visited a toy hospital, and Miss A had really been really enjoying watching the show on Disney Junior too, so was very excited to try this toy out.
What do you receive in the set?
- Doc Doll
- Doc’s Bag
This is the kind of toy that you can either let the child play on their own, and they will really enjoy and quickly pick up how to play with. However equally it the kind of toy, that is fantastic for interaction and role playing with your child. So far Miss A herself, has had little interaction with Doctors. As a family however she has experienced relatives being in hospital and ill and been extremely curious. This toy has in fact given Miss A the opportunity to ask even more questions, and has helped me understand how she is feeling at the moment about things.
The otoscope and thermometer both fit inside the Docs bag, which does make life easier, as they are small so easy to lose. Each of these, and the stethoscope can be used on Lambie to hear sounds like a heart beat and for her to talk to you or giggle. If you press on Dotties stomach she also says phrases and sings the ‘Time for your check-up’ song, which was a huge hit with Miss A!
So overall I think this is a fantastic toy which I can imagine is going to be a really popular one this winter, as the show has lots of fans, including us!
