During the Disney Junior press conference at Toy Fair, I got a peek at the "Doc McStuffins" toys rolling out this June! There's some adorable plush character toys, and some cute toys sets for kids to play doctor. I have really been impressed with this smart little girl character from Disney, helping to "heal" stuffed animals.
The "Doc McStuffins" series idea came from the executive producer's own experience taking her young son in and out of doctor's offices, hospitals and even ambulances with severe asthma. She came up with the series concept to help her son with his anxiety around doctors.
Here's a look at some of the Doc McStuffins toys that will be out this year:
A play doctor kit...
A "time for your check-up" Doc McStuffins doll from Just Play will be available for the 2012 holiday season. She says 10 phrases, sings the "check up" song, and can activate lihts and sounds from Lambie with the touch of her stethoscope.This will retail for $34.99.
A doctor's office playset . . .
