ABOUT DOC MCSTUFFINS
Get ready to start your day in a wonderful way! Doc McStuffins: Time For Your Checkup is all about helping to keep toys – and little ones – happy and healthy. Join Doc and her trusty team of lovable toys as every new checkup leads to miles of smiles. Laugh along when Doc cures Gus the Gator’s “Stuffedfulliosis.” Blast off with Star Blazer Zero as Doc shows him how to play it safe from launch through landing. Whether it’s eating right, getting enough rest, or getting an annual physical check-up, this delightful and nurturing program combines music, humor, and surprises in five fun-filled adventures that inspire friendship, hugs, and stay-healthy habits every day!
Though Doc McStuffins is a girl and her world is rather colorful and, well, girly, I wouldn’t consider this just a “girl’s show”. And though it is a Disney Junior show, I wouldn’t consider this just a toddler or preschooler’s show. Basically, this adorable series doesn’t fit the stereotypical mold of children’s shows. I know of several boys and girls alike who enjoy the show, as well as children of several ages. My 1 year old and 8 year old like to watch it together!
“The Doc is In” features the following episodes:
• Gulpy, Gulpy Gators! / One Note Wonder
• Tea Party Tantrum / Blast Off!
• Arcade Escapade / Starry, Starry Night
• Bronto Boo-Boos / Brontosaurus Breath
• Doctoring The Doc / Hot Pursuit
I appreciate that the episodes are short, which is perfect for younger kids. I also love that Doc gets wrapped up in her own imagination, toys coming to life and all! Doc also helps take the scariness out of going to the doctor by helping to fix up broken toys and teaching kids how they can stay healthy by eating a good diet and getting lots of rest. This is a show that easily slides in educational facts while providing humor and cuteness along the way.
