One of the newest additions to the Disney Junior lineup, Doc McStuffins is Dottie McStuffins, a six year old little girl who wants to be a doctor like her mother is. She has a stethoscope with "magical" powers - when she puts it on, stuffed toys come to life! She gives check ups to the toys, and fixes them up so they are all better in her playhouse "clinic". There is some singing throughout the episodes, and a little bit of healthy advice for kids to learn from. It's a cute show, and as a parent I love that there's a positive role model hiding in this show! It's geared towards girls ages 2 to 7, but that doesn't mean older kids - or boys - couldn't enjoy it too. My daughter thinks this show is awesome!
This is the first release on DVD from this show, and it features five full length episodes (each has two "stories" in it): "Engine Nine, Feelin' Fine!", "The Right Stuff", "caught Blue Handed", "To Squeak Or Not To Squeak", "Ben/Anna Split!", "That's Just Claw-ful", "The Rip Heard Round The World", "Walkie-Talkie Time", "Dark Knight", and "Hallie Gets An Earful". Here's a clip from the DVD:
