I don’t usually do product reviews, but I’m so pleased with the birthday present we just gave our six-year-old daughter! It’s the Pet Vet Center by Lakeshore Learning Materials.
I thought it was kind of pricy at $29.99, but ordered it anyway because I was in a rush. Turns out it’s really high quality. The puppy is extremely sturdy and much bigger than I expected, and the legs are jointed, so you can pose it. The cards and other accessories are heavy and durable. The biggest surprise was the stethoscope. It actually works! We’ve had a LOT of doctor sets in our day, and the stethoscope usually works about as well putting a glass on a wall. But with this one, the sounds are very clear and very loud. You can hear your heart beating and your gut swishing around. Very cool.
It doesn’t come with a carrying case, but the box is very strong and looks like it will last. Overall, a very nicely designed toy, very appealing and sturdy, and made with actual kids in mind.
I ordered it through Amazon. As with all the Amazon products I link to, I get a small percentage of any sale made (including any product on Amazon. So if you click on a link I post on a book review, browse around, and end up ordering Epsom salts and a package of underwear, I still get a percentage).
