When my younger Sister and I were growing up, She had a toy Dr. Kit. In her little hard plastic beige looking case was all she needed to make a proper diagnoses of the willing and unwilling patients. The stethoscope that she could really hear through was nice. The pill bottle was no problem. The blood pressure cuff was cute, as was the otoscope she used to look in our ears. The one thing that wasn’t so great about this vintage Fischer price kit was the needle. While It was harmless, I didn’t like it. That is why she had fun chasing me with it daily.
Now that kit is retro/vintage and gone on somewhere else. I am sure she would love to have it back now since she has kids. While I couldn’t send her kids the exact one their mom has. I have found another kit. This set is from Click n’ Play. It is a 15 piece doctor kit. This modern kit includes that famous needle that will let karma take it’s course. It also has a few other things that the vintage one didn’t. Things like a cell phone that makes realistic sounds. After all what Doctor doesn’t own a cell phone in 2015?
The stethoscope also makes realistic sounds. You will need 2 AA batteries for the cell phone – but the batteries are included for the stethoscope. The kit also includes a blood pressure cuff, thermometer, syringe, ear examination tools, 4 bandages, and more
This case is sturdy and is perfect for your little ones to make house calls with.
While I am a sentimental person and like to think back to yesteryears and the things that came along with those days. I also enjoy seeing change and things evolving. I think that this is a super modernized idea for a toy and one that any child with an imagination is going to love.
The best part? it is available on Amazon! Only $16.99 & Free shipping. I think this would make an awesome budget friendly Christmas present.
