Doc McStuffins: Friendship Is The Best Medicine DVD {Review & Giveaway}

When it comes to children's television, my girls enjoy a wide variety of genres and characters. Typically for boys, geared towards girls, universally humorous and cute? It doesn't matter, they can be entertained by them all.

However, that doesn't mean that they don't have discerning taste when it comes to their favorites. While they have shown a preference for particular characters over the years, it takes something pretty special in order for one to break into the ranks of being truly loved by one of my kids.

So, to say that Doc McStuffins is completely and utterly adored by both of my girls means quite a bit. They absolutely can't get enough and have watched each episode of this television series many times over! Which is why they were thrilled to know that Doc McStuffins: Friendship Is The Best Medicine has now been released on DVD for their viewing pleasure anytime and anywhere.

Doc McStuffins

Arriving today, August 21st, to DVD and Digital Copy, Doc McStuffins: Friendship is the Best Medicine brings five full length episodes directly to children everywhere. This animated television series airs daily on both the Disney Junior programming block on Disney Channel and the new 24-hour Disney Junior channel and has been an instant hit for children ages 2-7.

From the first time we saw this imaginative new series, we were hooked. The show's star, Doc McStuffins, is a six-year-old girl who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and broken toys out of her backyard playhouse clinic.

Assisting Doc with the day-to-day operations at the clinic are her much-loved friends: Stuffy, an overly proud dragon; Lambie, her cuddly best friend; Hallie, a jolly and caring hippo nurse; Squeakers, an alarmist squeaky toy fish; and Chilly, a snowman who spends a lot of time getting check-ups at the clinic.

Doc McStuffins characters

Whether it's a case of loose stitching, low batteries or a blow-up toy who's sprung a leak, Doc and her pals are always there to lend a helping hand, while imparting to young viewers the importance of taking care of oneself and others. Each episode features two 11-minute stories and an original song and showcases the hallmarks of great Disney storytelling – fantasy and wish fulfillment.

I absolutely love how the characters and themes featured in Doc McStuffins are all made to be relatable to young viewers and are designed to ease kids' trepidations about everything from a doctor's visit to removing a splinter. Many of the stories directly address the kinds of issues that parents face with their young children when it comes to good health, hygiene and trips to the doctor's office.

This series is perfect to have on-hand for entertainment as well as to help introduce and ease children into situations that they are sure to experience when growing up.

Doc McStuffins

The episodes featured on this DVD include:
  • Engine Nine, Feelin' Fine! – Doc and her toys learn a lesson about dehydration after discovering that Donny's toy fire engine has run out of water.
  • The Right Stuff – Stuffy rips his tail and tries to hide it from Doc and the other toys and learns that anyone can get hurt, even brave dragons.
  • Caught Blue-Handed – When a mysterious rash of blue spots breaks out among some of the toys in the clinic, Doc traces the "Mystery Pox" back to Donny's toy monster, Glo-Bo who had been finger-painting earlier in the day and forgot to wash his hands. Glo-Bo is voiced by Jim Belushi.
  • To Squeak, Or Not To Squeak – Doc helps a plastic toy duck get his voice back after his squeaker pops out.
  • Ben/Anna Split! – When Doc's huggy monkey doll Ben loses the Velcro patch that attaches him to his sister Anna, Doc glues it back on and tells him that he will have to stay in the clinic overnight while it dries.
  • That's Just Claw-ful – Doc prescribes physical therapy for her crab bath toy Hermie after she reattaches one of his claws that has fallen off.
  • The Rip Heard Round The World –While dancing with Lambie, Doc accidentally rips a hole in her fur.
  • Walkie-Talkie Time – Doc diagnoses a toy walkie-talkie with "Staticosis" and helps find his missing antenna so he can communicate clearly again.
  • Dark Knight – During a sleepover with all of her toys, Doc discovers that Sir Kirby is afraid of the dark and prescribes a night light to cure him of the "Dark Willies."
  • Hallie Gets An Earful – When Hallie is having trouble hearing, Doc gives her a hearing test and realizes that she has extra cotton stuck in her ears.
Doc McStuffins Disney Jr

Along with the approximately 115 minutes of showing kids the importance of washing your hands or that staying overnight in the hospital isn't too scary of an experience, we were excited to see that Doc McStuffins: Friendship Is The Best Medicine brought one more aspect of entertainment: the Big Book of Boo Boos.

Big Book of Boo-Boos

Anyone who has watched an episode of Doc McStuffins knows just how important this book is to the show! My girls love to talk about the Big Book of Boo Boos and see what Doc will write (or draw) in it in each episode, so having their own version filled with fun activities and character and boo boo bandage stickers made them jump for joy!

Whether you have huge Doc McStuffins fans in your life or this is the first that you've heard of the show, Doc McStuffins: Friendship Is The Best Medicine is a wonderful addition to any at-home collection. Kids will surely adore the characters while moms and dads will appreciate the messages of kindness, bravery, childhood and more.

With a list price of $19.99, this DVD is available now on Amazon (for $14.85) as well as in stores near you. And, thanks to the generosity of Disney Jr, one person will be able to bring home the fun and imagination of keeping toys and stuffed animals healthy and well, because...

One lucky person will win a copy of Doc McStuffins: Friendship is the Best Medicine on DVD!
