I’ve been working with children for over 25 years and couldn’t be without a doctors role play set for the children. I’ve had many sets over the years none of them has lasted very long. In fact, I still have some of the pieces from my old Fisher Price doctors kit from my childhood. The classic old set was built to last many years ago but none of the new sets available has been made as well. However, I came across a wonderful set that looks very well made and it’s very similar, if not better than my old Fisher Price set.
It’s the Pretend & Play Doctor Set by Learning Resources. It’s recommended for children aged 3-7 years and is the perfect set that encourages children to have fun whilst learning about their health and body parts.
Children just love role play toys and this set is a great way to help them take it in turns to be a doctor or patient.
What’s inside the strong transparent plastic doctors case;
Stethoscope with sounds.
Smartphone with sounds (requires 2 *AAA* batteries not included)
Thermometer with moving dials.
Blood pressure cuff.
The plastic case can carry all the tools inside and has easy clips to open and close. The children were able to open and close the clips all by themselves and loved carrying the case around on the way to their next patient. The case is strong but isn’t too heavy for them to carry. All the tools inside the case are made from strong plastic and they don’t look like they will break easily.
Role play toys can help children develop their language skills, social skills, creativity, imagination and thinking. Doctors playsets also help your children feel more comfortable when they have to visit a real doctor, they can relate to the tools and understand why the doctor has to use them to check their health.
This doctor set is definitely the best I’ve seen so far and I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a set that will last.
I was sent this set to review as always all thoughts and opinions remain my own.
