Disney Junior has a few new shows that have been introduced recently. The latest addition to the line-up is “Doc McStuffins” . It is a cute show that has become a favorite.
Finding entertainment for a small child can be difficult. Sure little ones love songs, bright colors and fun characters. Parents, like me, want to make sure the cartoons they expose their children to are more than just fun though. This cartoon fits the bill.
“Doc McStuffins” is an animated series featuring a girl that treats and heals all sorts of toys and stuffed animals. This 6-year-old is a “doctor” appealing to 2- to 7-year-olds. Some of her cases have been treating hiccups for a microphone toy, an alligator from a game with a tummy ache, a dancing toy with a broken leg and a bubble making toy that isn’t blowing bubbles.
A parent might find their child taking a break when “The Doc is In!” Parents are finding this a great choice for their children because of the medical element. Sure, this is a little girl pretending to be a doctor to her toys, but it speaks to children. Going to the doctor or hospital can be scary. “Doc McStuffins” helps her toy patients through medical situations especially geared toward their needs. She magically talks to her patients to learn what ails them. Then she treats them. The tips provided by the show also help teach about living a healthy lifestyle and eases the fear children may having about visiting the doctor. The characters, stories and songs make it fun as well as educational. Children watching probably don’t realize they are learning.
The final words about “Doc McStuffins” are I know my 3-year-old enjoys the show because he smiles during the episodes and chants for the show again when it is over! We recommend watching “Doc McStuffins” on the Disney Junior.
