If you have not seen Disney’s Doc McStuffins, Dottie ‘Doc’ McStuffins is a six-year-old girl who ‘fixes’ toys, with a little help from her stuffed animal friends, Lambie, Stuffy, Hallie and Chilly.
Eliza adores Doc McStuffins and has her Doctors Bag playset which she plays with regularly, so when we were offered the Doc McStuffins Eye Doctor Bag Playset to review she couldn’t wait to get inside the box!
The playset includes everything you need to be an eye doctor – 3 pairs of interchangeable play glasses, an eye drops bottle, an ophthalmoscope (or looker as Eliza calls it), an eye patch, a head torch and reward stickers and all with a handy sparkly carry case to keep all the equipment in so you can carry it to the next patient on the list.
This set is perfect for role and imaginative play and can take the fear out of going to the optician to have your eyes checked. I wish something like this had been around when Abbey was small as we were back and forth to the eye hospital regularly and this would have helped her understand what was going on.
Eliza adores playing with it and will sit with her toys for hours talking to them and making sure they “get better”. It is lovely listening to her and occasionally she lets me join in too. The glasses are a perfect fit for her and she loves changing the fronts – the heart shape is her favourite!! The glasses fit some of her larger teddies too!
The set comes with a pink sparkly Doctor’s bag in the traditional Doc colours of pink and purple which may put some boys off, however it hasn’t bothered Isaac in the slightest and he is happy to join in too.
If you have a Doc McStuffins fan then this would make the perfect gift – just be aware that you will be having your eyes looked at a lot!
