Is there a doctor in the house? There is now! With the Fisher-Price Medical Kit, preschoolers can throw on their white coats and dive right in to role play fun. Mini-MDs can “listen” to their patient’s heart with the stethoscope, “check” their temperature with the thermometer (press the button to go from “sick” to “well”!), take a peek inside their ears with the otoscope (ewww earwax!) or pump the blood pressure cuff to see the gauge spin! And, say bye-bye to pretend boo-boos with the toy bandage cuff. Even getting a shot becomes fun with the toy syringe! Where development comes into play Healthy Habits: Going to the doctor can be a confusing time for a preschooler. This medical kit lets them play out the experience & learn that going to the doctor is important for their body and helps keep them healthy! Imagination: Preschoolers exercise their imaginations as they play out different scenarios while pretending to take care of patients. Sharing & Cooperation: Preschoolers learn about cooperation as they discover the fun of taking turns being the doctor and the patient.
A healthy dose of role play fun
The Fisher-Price Medical Kit has everything little MDs need to perform checkups on their friends, the family, their stuffed animals, the dog… From checking blood pressure, to taking a temperature (press the thermometer button to go from “sick” to “well”!), taking a peek inside the ears, and “listening” to a heartbeat, preschoolers will have a blast practicing their doctor skills. They might even be a little more excited for their next pediatrician visit!
Pretend play, real learning
Playing out the experience of going to see the doctor not only helps preschoolers develop healthy imaginations, it also can help them understand how doctors help keep them healthy, so they can keep on playing!
Isn’t taking turns fun? Encourage your little one to share (and get in on all that role play fun!) by switching roles from patient to doctor. Say “ahhh”!
