Rigorous Parents’ Choice & Hot Diggity Awards Recommend  Daily Dose Of My Little Pediatrician, Veterinarian Or Sports Medicine Kits

Creve Coeur, MO (July 12, 2017) – If you’ve got kids or pets, boo boos are bound to occur with the children and the fur-children! Kids see what happens when they visit their pediatrician and may wonder what goes on at the vet’s office. If they play soccer or joined Little League, urgent care visits may be on the horizon! The newest kits from Little Medical School offer a daily dose of healthy inspiration and aspiration. Two toy industry contests, Parents’ Choice Awards® and Hot Diggity Awards, agreed, then handed out top honors to three kits: My Little Pediatrician, My Little Veterinarian and My Sports Medicine ($49.95 each).

Inside these multi-piece kits are fun activities like a nose-to-tail or a nose-to-toes exam! Each medical kit is designed for a preschooler’s curiosity. Moreover, the activities promote social development, cooperation, teamwork, creativity and problem solving. Kids aged 6 and up are the ideal age to discover sports medicine. In these kits, science, health and injury prevention are nurtured via real ace bandage and learning the 27 bones in each hand!

“The My Little Pediatrician Kit by Little Medical School is a role playing set used to encourage imagination and pretend doctor/patient play,” begins the glowing review by hard-to-get Parents’ Choice Award. “The well-made kit includes a kid-sized white ‘doctor’ coat, a soft plush baby-like toy with a removable diaper, and details such as a birth/adoption certificate, a tape measure, a baby ID bracelet, and a doctor badge to add realistic elements to the play. There’s even a medical degree to assure patients they’re in good hands, and workbook with markers for the doctor to keep track of the baby’s progress. And the bottom of the box is padded to double as a bed and/or examination table.”

Parents’ Choice awarded its Spring 2017 Recommended seal to the popular Pediatrician kit, already a multi-award winner. It’s worth noting that Parents’ Choice boasts how tough they are on reviewing new toys!

“As a Parents’ Choice Award winner, you’re a member of a very select group. It’s an honor that doesn’t come easily. The rigors of the lengthy multi-level evaluation process is what has made the independent nonprofit Parents’ Choice Awards program trusted by consumers, educators and retailers for more than 38 years.”

The Hot Diggity Awards, as its name implies, takes a whimsical approach to toys. As they wrote three different times in their 2017 Winner reviews…

“What makes it Hot Diggity great? Little Medical School’s line of medical kits are so clever and combine imaginative play with education seamlessly. The company doesn’t underestimate children’s ability to learn about real medical procedures, anatomy and patient care and each kit lays everything out in a fun and innovative way. The doctor’s coat is really well made, unlike many children’s costumes on the market! My Little Pediatrician Kit is a fantastic gift for a new big brother or sister! Children can examine, measure and change the diaper of the included plush baby while watching mom or dad do the same.”

“Offers a wondrous array of fun and exciting props and activities through which children explore the world of medicine, science, health and care taking,” writes Hot Diggity Awards on its website. “The workbook engages little doctors with activities that are as fun as they are enlightening: adopting, naming, and putting a diaper on the baby, learning about diaper rash (and how to prevent it), measuring the circumference of the baby’s head, performing a ‘Nose to Toes Exam,’ and both an introductory and graduation ceremony.

2017 Hot Diggity Award Winner

From Hot Diggity’s website comes this two-paws up review: “My Little Veterinarian Kit teaches kids about the basic vet check up and what to look for in a healthy puppy. The kits are packed with materials, but the real value is in the lesson book that explains pet care… “… learning about a dog, learning about healthy snacks dogs can eat, measuring the chest size perimeter and front leg length of the dog, performing a ‘Nose to Tail Exam,’ doing a tick check and removing tick stickers from the dog.”

My Little Sports Medicine Kit™ • Ages 6+ • $49.95
2017 Hot Diggity Award Winner

”Great for the older child (perhaps one who’s broken a bone or two) with a detailed lesson in anatomy and bones,” writes Hot Diggity with a two-thumbs up online review. “Nice introduction to other areas of medicine such as orthopedics and sports medicine… The workbook engages little doctors with activities that are as fun as they are enlightening: Learning how to treat an ankle sprain, learning the bones of the skeleton and hand, making models of different joints, performing simulated Tommy John Surgery.”
