This show is about a little girl named Dottie “Doc” McStuffins who wants to become a doctor like her mother when she grows up.

The toys come to life, they move around, and she’s able to talk to them!

The first story is about Chilly, Doc’s favorite stuffed snowman. He stays outside in the cold for hours to talk to a snowman he made and finds himself extremely cold. Doc gives him and check up and everyone learns the important of keeping their bodies warm.
In the second story, Doc plays an optometrist and helps Professor Hoostburgh, her stuffed owl toy, get rid of the blurries.
It’s Hallie the Hippo’s birthday and everyone is in on the surprise party! This was definitely one of my daughter’s favorite episodes on the DVD as it involved a lot of Doc and Donny’s (her brother) toys. The part where Sir Kirby the knight pretended to be sick and danced with Hallie was very entertaining.
Mr. Chomp, Donny’s shark, has a broken tooth and needs repair. Doc plays a dentist in this one and fixes Mr. Chomp’s tooth so it’s good as new!
Oops, Chilly the snowman turned pink! He’s afraid everyone will laugh at him because he’s different. He learns that it’s ok to be different.

There’s a disco party in the playhouse! But one of Doc’s dolls got hurt while skating. Doc teaches us a little about radiology and creates an x-ray of the fractured toy.
Donny’s new daredevil glider planes joins Doc’s indoor picnic. One one the glider planes got hurt. See how Doc nurses him back to good health.
Celestial Celeste has the whole universe in the palm of her hands. She's a projector that displays the planets and stars on the ceiling. But something goes wrong and she's not working properly. Doc exams her and teaches her to tell a doctor when she doesn't feel well.
In "Run Doc, Run," Doc is the patient this time! She hurts her ankle and her mom tells her to rest.
These 5 episodes, which contain 10 different stories, are full of songs and music that will surely make your little one dance.
As an added bonus, you can find a Doc Dress-Up playset inside! It comes with four sticker sheets, a punch-out Doc McStuffins, and a two-sided scene (one side is of the clinic and the other is of the backyard). Your child can take the stickers out and put them on the various scenes. They can constantly remove and stick them on again. My daughter really liked dressing up Doc McStuffins in her signature outfit. She had a lot of shoes to choose from too.
As a parent, I enjoy this tv show series because it teaches children not to be afraid of the doctor and to take good care of themselves. Kids learn how to stay happy and healthy! This compilation shows many different aspects of medicine, and they are explained in a way that children can comprehend.
Each episode consists of two mini shows, both 12 minutes long. It's appropriate for ages 2-5. I enjoyed the shows too and I'm a little bit over that age group. Lastly, I really appreciate how the show incorporates a moral lesson or two in each story.
