REVIEW: I’m always impressed with the quality of preschool TV these days. When I was a kid, we had “Sesame Street” — which, obviously, was fantastic, although it wasn’t on one of the three channels we got — and that was it. Now there are all sorts of great preschool shows about everything from animals to nature to space.
“Doc McStuffins” is a ridiculously cute show for preschoolers on Disney Jr., about a 6-year-old girl — “Doc” (voiced by Kiara Muhammad) — who helps kids with their sick or hurt toys. Something kids can relate to.
Think of her as the Dr. Doolittle for toys. Her backyard playhouse becomes her clinic where she uses her special ability to communicate with toy friends to help them when they have physical or emotional bangs and bruises.
In this DVD, Doc goes mobile and gets there fast when somebody needs help. After building a mobile clinic with her dad, Doc is able to make house calls to help toys in need when she’s away from her own backyard clinic. The Doc Mobile comes equipped with everything she needs to fix toys good as new — including on-site cuddles.
It’s all so adorable. I’m sure I’m not the first parent to wonder if there’s a real-life Doc McStuffins who can come to our home when we need on-site cuddles to help with the stress of life.
