What to know before you buy a Doc McStuffins toy

Doc McStuffins is no regular doctor. She “fixes” broken dolls and toys with her magic stethoscope that has many supernatural powers, including the ability to travel back and forth through time. Doc wears a blue lab coat with polka dot leggings and sparkly pink sneakers. She helps sick and broken toys recover and feel better by giving them checkups. Doc McStuffins diagnoses pets “illnesses” with a medical encyclopedia called “The Big Book of Boo-Boos.” When Doc helps toy pets, she consults her “Big Vet Book” on her tablet computer.

Doc McStuffin toys include several of the main characters from the show. Here are some of the most popular:
