The Doctor Mommy Doll and accessories kit is definitely not the average doll from our childhood. This toy reflects not only advances in technology, but also advancements in the realm of women’s liberation and self-esteem. Being a doctor is no longer only for boys to dream about – girls can be doctors too.
This is a fully interactive doll experience that is unique and a lot of fun while educational for little girls at the same time. They are able to enjoy providing care as a doctor to a sick little girl doll in many realistic ways with well-designed accessories and equipment.
The Little Mommy Doctor Mommy Doll set includes the doll and a complete medical kit to treat the sick little girl after she gets a name tag like happens in real hospitals.
Features of Little Mommy Doctor Mommy Doll
- A girl doll that talks with her Mommy Doctor interactively saying things such as “Mommy, I have a tummy ache”, “ahhh” with the tongue depressor, “I love you, Mommy!” when feeling better and many more phrases in response to different medical instruments. She also makes appropriate noises indicating illness such as coughing and sniffling.
- A pink medical case instead of the traditional black bag for the doctor
- A complete medical kit including a name tag for the doll, a pink bandage, a medicine dropper that “cures” the forehead that turns red to simulate a high temperature, a stethoscope that lights up and emits the sound of a heartbeat when placed against the doll’s chest, syringe, a reflex hammer that causes the leg to kick when hit against the knee, a thermometer that changes from a happy face to a sad one when clicked, and a tongue depressor.
What We Like About Little Mommy Doctor Mommy Doll
The Doctor Mommy Doll set is a versatile toy and great for several different reasons. It is clearly meant to convey a message that girls can be good doctors too and emphasizes the stereotypical nurturing characteristics common to girls as well – which is a good thing all the way around.
Not only is the doll kit great for inspiration for growing children, it is also great for helping a child get comfortable with the process of a medical exam so visits to the doctor won’t be scary.
It can even go with your child to the doctor visit so the doctor can show your child what is going to happen to the doll first with no harm resulting.
The Little Mommy Doctor Mommy doll can do much in creating confidence in a child about any upcoming doctor visits or hospital stays both for a child and for a loved one facing health problems that might seem scary to children.
Girls can use the medical instruments interactively with the doll and diagnose and treat various medical problems such as a high temperature, boo-boos, heart rate, etc. The doll can also “talk” and says things that real little girls might say when not feeling well or in reaction to medications among other things.
What Others Are Saying About Little Mommy Doctor Mommy Doll Set
The educational value of a female doctor is noted by most and in some cases, may be the main reason for purchasing for a little girl to play with. The “working” stethoscope is also mentioned frequently as a plus because it will light up and give a heartbeat sound when used on the doll or on people either one.
The biggest drawback is the lack of an on/off switch as the constant talking can become annoying to adults because it keeps talking (and draining the batteries) even after the child has stopped playing with it. But that can be easily avoided by purchasing it for children who don’t live in your home…such as grandchildren.
The Bottom Line
The Little Mommy Doctor Mommy Doll is well worth the money spent and will benefit whoever receives the doll in a myriad of ways in addition to the entertaining fun it provides. It can help children deal with fear of doctor visits while also opening their minds to the possibility of becoming a doctor themselves someday. The doll set can give an avenue of expression for the naturally caring and nurturing side of little girls while they take care of their sick baby doll effectively through the use of realistic medical instruments.
