My Little Pediatrician Kit Review by Audrey Tolle

Little Medical School
707 N. New Ballas Rd
Creve Coeur, MO 63141

Creative play and hands-on learning is such an important element of any homeschool and I am always eager to try new hands-on activities for my children, especially if they are STEM related. I had the opportunity to review the My Little Pediatrician Kit, which is a STEM based product by Little Medical School that’s purpose is to bring “medicine, science, and the importance of health to children 4-12 in an entertaining, exciting, and fun way.”  My Little Pediatrician Kit includes: Little Medical School white lab coat, plush baby, assessment forms, tape measure, markers, birth certificate, diploma, and workbook. 

The stuffed baby is really cute and the doctor lab coat is a fun touch to the role-playing kit. The workbook includes things to look for and measure in a baby’s growth and safety. The kit included a paper stethoscope and paper knee plexor, (or maybe it was an ear light, it was kind of hard to tell.)

My children enjoyed the playing and discovering that this kit was able to inspire. It was fun to role-play as a doctor to the baby and measure the body and head circumference. My only complaint would be that the doctor tools are made out of paper, which obviously won’t last long. There are cheap plastic doctor instruments at dollar stores, so for $49.99, I would think that the instruments would be of a little better quality than cardstock. This did not hold my kids interest more than the one or two times that they played with it and I think the low quality of the instruments is the reason for that. But the doll and coat are quality and make up for the lack of quality in the instruments.
