Melissa and Doug Vet Kit for Aspiring Junior Veterinarians

The Melissa and Doug Examine and Treat Vet Play Set​​​​ provides a great package of pretend-play veterinary equipment for young animal lovers to look after their pets.

This 24-piece set of toy medical equipment includes a tote bag to carry all the vet apparatus, as well as a soft and cuddly plush cat and dog as their first patients.

Kids can use their imagination and pretend to help pets recuperate from an illness or prepare them for treatment following an accident. They can show all their love and affection in assisting them to recover. And this is where this vet playset provides such value. It helps kids empathize with animals, to resolve their suffering, and to develop a respect for all living things.

The set can be used on real pets, on existing toy animals or the cat and dog soft toys provided.

The vet set includes cast bandages, clamp, ear scope, stethoscope, syringe, thermometer, and tweezers. There are pots of creams and ointments, and even a neck cone to stop their four-legged patient licking or scratching a wound. Just what they need to run a pet hospital.

And to make sure you cover all bases when giving your patient a checkup, a double-sided checklist is included.

There is an excellent addition you can make to this set, and that is to add a veterinarian outfit.

The Melissa and Doug Veterinarian Costume

Melissa & Doug Veterinarian Role-Play Costume Set, Pretend Play, Materials, Machine-Washable, 17.5" H x 24" W x 0.75" L

The costume features a machine washable vet jacket. It has five, deep see-through pockets on the front - enough space to carry a few vital pieces of kit as you check up on your patients.

Also, a mask and cap to avoid contamination. There's a grey plush dog - you can never have too many patients to look after - and a stethoscope with sound effects. You’ll need 2 x AAA batteries.

Role-playing is an essential part of learning and growing and enables kids to express themselves. The Melissa and Doug vet kit is an attractive bundle of toys and accessories for kids aged 3 to 6 years that makes them look the part.
