New Series Makes Dreams Real for Brown Girls & Calms Childhood Check-up Fears

Scroll down for giveaway details…

I can’t say enough good things about this series.  Doc McStuffins, which premiered last year and has been signed for a second season during Disney’s Summer programming, is a series aimed at children ages 2-7 years old.  The show follows a 6-year-old girl as she gives imaginary check-ups to her toys and provides diagnosis by observing their symptoms.

If that on it’s own wasn’t encouraging enough, the icing on the cake is the fact that Doc McStuffins’ mother is a real doctor.  Throughout the series, we see Doc bringing her “tough cases” to her mother for additional consultation and these sessions between Doc and her mother are what truly make the series stand out.

It’s not just that Doc has an imagination, but there is the physical presence of an example in her mother.  This is both touching and poignant, since data shows that children gain confidence in their abilities from real life experiences.  Not only does Doc McStuffins have an example in her mother, but the ability to watch Doc and her mother interact also provides children watching the program with the same example.  Win, win!

    This show has been my 4 yr. old's summer favorite, and I must say he loves Doc McStuffins! I've had to print out coloring pages for him from the Disney website. This is such a positive and encouraging show. The other day, we were out playing, and he says, "Momma, I need to drink some water because I need to stay 'hydrated'" LOL (He learned this new word from one of the episodes, and not only that he too, has 'diagnosed' himself when sick, or has had a 'boo, boo.' Great show! I've DVR'ed it for him, since he has now officially started Pre-K!
