Thank you to Disney for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own.
As a busy working mom I cherish the time I get to spend with my kids when we can just play. Especially when we are doing something they want to do, or playing the way they want to. One way my four year old daughter and I play that she seems to really really enjoy is when we play doctor.
‘Mommy Day’ is time for play
Toward the end of every week my daughter will ask me, “is tomorrow ‘mommy day'”? Mommy Day is what she has dubbed the days I don’t have to go to work and just get to stay home with her. I tell her “yes, it is mommy day” and her face just lights up.
You see, every weekend she drags me into the basement where we have a spare couch and a few of the kids’ toys and gives me a checkup. She loves to play doctor and give me a once over. It is her time with me, just her and I. The funny thing is, she will use any available toy/tool/apparatus to check my temperature, look at my teeth, check my ouchies, etc.
Even though I love the fact that she can pretty much devise a medical use out of any device, she has been really begging me for a Doc McStuffins Doctor Bag Set. I took a look at the kit that is available and decided she should probably have it. We have so much fun playing together that it is time she had some ‘real’ tools!
Doc McStuffins Doctor’s Bag Set
What I love about this Doctor’s Bag Set is that for one it is cute, all of the parts fit conveniently in the bag with room to spare (great for someone like me who doesn’t like little pieces laying all over), and the pieces in the kit actually function. The blood pressure cuff has a working gauge, the syringe has a spring in it, and the stethoscope lights up and makes noises. My daughter also loves stickers so the added stickers in the set is a nice bonus for her to decorate the doctor bag.
This doctor bag set will make a great gift for any young child on your list, and even my six year old son wanted to play with it when he saw it in the store.
You can find the Disney Doc McStuffins Doctor’s Bag Playset at many different retailers including Toys “R” Us, Walmart, Target, and more. The 8 piece set includes:
- Doc’s bag
