We recently started watching the Disney Junior channel. I’ve been trying to get Buggy to watch something other than Dora so when I was asked if I wanted to review Disney Junior’s newest hit animated TV series geared to kids ages 2-7, “Doc McStuffins,” which will be available for the first time ever on Disney DVD and Digital Copy, August 21, 2012, I absolutely jumped at the chance. I have to admit that I was not familiar with the animated series. So I did a search on my Disney Junior channel for Doc McStuffins and started recording it and I loved it. Buggy also loved it as well. She was hooked immediately and it's now our favorite so our DVR is set to record all the shows.
This week we took road trip to South Carolina and it took us two days to get there. On our second day I had to pull out the DVD since we were bordering on a meltdown. As soon as I asked Buggy if she wanted to watch Doc McStuffins everything changed. Our little Doc McStuffins saved us. Buggy watched this DVD from Baltimore, MD to Charleston, SC. She sang, she laughed and it was great.
The characters and themes featured in “Doc McStuffins” are all made to be relatable to young viewers and are designed to ease kids' trepidations about everything from a doctor's visit to removing a splinter. Many of the stories directly address the kinds of issues that parents face with their young children when it comes to good health, hygiene and trips to the doctor’s office. It’s the perfect series to have on-hand and add to your home entertainment collection. Buggy loved wearing her Dr.’s coat and using her stethoscope. We practiced listening to her heart, checking her ears, eyes and saying “aaaahhh” just like her pediatrician does. She had fun practicing on her dogs and Dora as well. I think this will certainly help her next time we go to the Dr.’s office.
About “Doc McStuffins”:
"Doc McStuffins" is an imaginative animated series about Doc McStuffins, a six-year-old girl who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and broken toys out of her backyard playhouse clinic. Assisting Doc with the day-to-day operations at the clinic are her much-loved friends: Stuffy, an overly proud dragon; Lambie, her cuddly best friend; Hallie, a jolly and caring hippo nurse; Squeakers, an alarmist squeaky toy fish; and Chilly, a snowman who spends a lot of time getting check-ups at the clinic. Whether it's a case of loose stitching, low batteries or a blow-up toy who's sprung a leak, Doc and her pals are always there to lend a helping hand, while imparting to young viewers the importance of taking care of oneself and others. Each episode features two 11-minute stories and an original song and showcases the hallmarks of great Disney storytelling – fantasy and wish fulfillment.
