This month, Disney Junior Middle East premiered a new show - Doc McStuffins.

The series chronicles a six-year-old girl named Dottie McStuffins who, one day, wants to become a doctor like her mother. As a kid, she "pretends" to be a doctor by fixing up toys and dolls (because of this, everyone calls her 'Doc'). When she puts on her stethoscope, something magical happens: toys, dolls and stuffed animals come to life and she can communicate with them. With a little help from her stuffed animal friends, Stuffy, Hallie, Lambie and Chilly, Doc helps toys "feel better" by giving them check-ups. Each 11-minute episode includes original songs, the "Time for Your Check-Up" song and the "I Feel Better" song. During ending credits, Doc gives advice to viewers about staying healthy.

My son loved the show. He enjoys watching Doc McStuffins' stuffed animal friends, most especially, Stuffy the stuffed dragon. As a mom, what I liked best is that it teaches our kids to care for themselves and others. It is one good way for us parents to stress on the importance of hygiene and staying healthy without being too serious and imposing.
It also opens up a whole new world of imagination for kids. I remember my son saying after watching an episode, that he wants to be a doctor so he can take care of his toys and mommy and daddy.
Doc McStuffins also promotes the fun and importance of friendship, true to its key message that "Friendship is the best Medicine".
