Ever since Doc McStuffins started airing on Disney Jr. she has been a huge hit in our house. Eva has pretended to be doc and has even created her own big book of boo boos. She also bought that Lambie toy that she is holding in the photo with her own money. We were given a copy of the latest compilation DVD of Doc’s adventures to watch and review, opinions as always are 100% our own. The DVD that is being released May 7 is titled Doc McStuffins: Time for Your Check Up It consists of five episodes which as you know contains two stories in each episode. I like that because we can watch half an episode if we have a fifteen minute chunk of time or a whole episode if we have a half hour.
We were watching the DVD this morning and it was getting close to the time where Eva had to get ready for school. I said that she could watch one more story from the DVD and then go get ready. That 15 minute episode does make for a quicker turnaround when it comes to our morning routine.
We like the Doc because she is a positive role model for kids. She is kind, compassionate and caring. she is also a smart character. She thinks things through and gets to the root of the problem for a positive outcome for all involved. She keeps a clear head when those around her are losing theirs, most notably is Chilly the Stuffed Snowman, voiced by the awesome Jess Harnell, who is a bit of a hypochondriac.
Doc teaches life lessons and learns from her mother and father. Her mother is also a doctor but instead of a toy doctor she is a doctor of people. So you can see how Doc has modeled her imaginative play after her mother. Although in the case of this show the Doc really can speak to her toys and help them out. It is a fun cute show and the DVD is a nice addition to the collection. Here are some clips and additional info on the DVD.
