When I was a little girl, I once received a couple of dollars as a birthday gift. I remember walking down to the neighborhood toy store and excitedly choosing a toy doctor kit. My kit was made entirely of plastic, but this quality Doctor's Suitcase from Haba has a metal case with wooden handles and the accessories are made from quality hardwood.
Why do children love playing doctor so much? Children's play helps makes scary things less so, and helps them to better understand the world. Playing "doctor" ahead of time can ease the anxiety of an upcoming trip to the pediatrician.
