Rated 4 out of 5 I will fix you!
Firstly, the set looks lovely - very pretty and girly. It is made from thick plastic, is robust and seems like very good quality. It's quite large and fits all of the instruments inside, which is really handy. All of the instruments have a similar look to the bag - pink, purple and glittery. They're all a good size, are easy to use and are made from robust plastic.
My daughter was thrilled to receive her Doc McStuffins Doctors Bag Set at Christmas. I was a little concerned that she would be a little too old for it (shes 6) but thankfully she has a great imagination and has got LOADS of use of it! It's a good little set for imaginative play and role play. It's also really good at teaching little ones about basic first aid and what certain medical instruments are for and how to use them. She gets her doctors bag out when we don't feel well and tries to make us better, she also likes to diagnose her toys! She usually uses ALL of her medical instruments to check us over (looking in our ears with the otoscope, checking our temperature with the thermometer, taking our blood pressure, checking our hearts the stethoscope and then fixing us with the syringe, bandage and giving us a sticker if we've been brave enough!).
The only downside to the set is that the bag is quite awkward to open. My daughter couldn't open the bag until I showed her how to (it slides backwards and unclips), she found it awkward at first but can open it easily now, however I imagine this may be a problem for younger children. The bandage is only large enough to fit around an adults wrist (big enough for children though) and the same applies to the blood pressure cuff (again, perfectly sized for children though) - not ideal but my daughter doesn't seem to mind.
One of my favourite things about this set is that it's good quality and robust. My daughter has previously had medical sets that are made from flimsy plastic, include paper and other useless materials! The set is well made and is made from decent materials. We've had the Doc McStuffins Doctors Bag for a couple of months now and it's still in great condition. I'm sure it will be around in years to come.
I would say it's a little overpriced but would otherwise definitely recommend to all young girls, inspiring doctors and Doc McStuffins fans!

I brought this a week ago for my niece! And she loves it! Think it helps that it is glittery as well and especially loves the magical light up stethoscope! And we have all become her patients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Uj37 Fantastic!
My 4yrs old daughter saw this at her friends place earlier in the year and ever since has been asking for it. We went together to pick it up and ever since has not failed to measure my temperature, inject me or tell me to open my mouth. She and her twin brother has abandoned their other toys to play doctors. Just tell them you will take it away when they are naughty and see how quickly they behave. They absolutely love it.
