Donny (Doc’s little brother) is worried that the new baby will take attention away from him, so he plans to run away. Doc has been busy helping her parents prepare for the new baby too that Lambie starts to feel left out. I can absolutely relate to this episode. I recently had my second child and my eldest daughter felt lonely and left out a lot. It is a great episode to help the children adjust to the new change.

Mom and Dad McStuffins get the call that the new baby is on the way! Grandma McStuffins arrives to help take care of Doc and Donny while their parents are away.

Baby McStuffins is finally home! But surprisingly, she does not have a name yet. Donny, Doc’s brother, thinks they should name her “Spooky Baby Alien Eyes”, but that does not seem right.Doc is playing with her toys in the nursery in case the baby wakes up and gets fussy. Lala, the baby’s first toy, was in the crib and decided to play a song for the baby. Unfortunately, the baby wakes up and starts crying. Lala tries to make the baby stop crying by dancing on the edge of the crib but falls and gets a rip! Time for someone to get a check-up!
I watched the DVD with my almost 5-year-old daughter. She has always loved watching Doc McStuffins since she was very little and she absolutely loved this DVD.
She was a little bit scared of the lion that appeared in the Toy Hospital episode though. He was a broken toy who was not enthusiastic about Doc’s arrival.
The four episodes with the baby were adorable. My daughter was constantly laughing at Stuffy the Dragon’s antics.
Free Bonus Gift
As a bonus gift, a Toysponder was included in the DVD. It looks just like the one that Grandma McStuffins give to Doc in the first episode. My daughter was really excited to play with it after she saw the Toy Hospital episode. It’s a little bit hard to put on because the holes for the latch is small. But once you get it on, it is stuck.
This DVD was quite enjoyable. I liked watching it with my daughter and listening to her laugh at the episodes. The Toy Hospital was a great adventure and we got to meet a new character — Grandma McStuffins. I am happy to see that she can talk to toys too. What I really loved most about this DVD were the episodes about babies. My daughter went through a lot of the same emotions when her sibling arrived. The episodes are nice because they help the kids understand that these feelings are normal and how they can adjust.
