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!
