Melissa and Doug is one of those brands parents know they can rely on. Their toys are great for helping children learn numbers, letters, and other essential skills. They are also super fun for role play, like this cute Examine and Treat Vet Play Pet Set which is perfect for practicing nurturing and playing with animal cuddly toys.


The Melissa and Doug Examine and Treat Vet Play Pet Set is a cute little vet's bag containing a great bundle of toys and accessories to help your child to role play as an animal doctor. It comes with 24 pieces in all, including a soft, cuddly plush dog and cat to examine and diagnose.

There is also a stethoscope for the mini veterinarian role to wear as well as accessories to treat the animals with, such as ointments, tweezers, a cast for a broken limb, clamp, ear scope, thermometer, syringe, and more.


There’s even a two-sided checklist your child can use to pretend he’s giving the pet a full checkup. If she finds something wrong, she can use the included bandages before sending the animal home.

Kids can use the accessories, which also include bottles and a cone, to nurse their cuddly pets back to health. They can give a pet a checkup and check its vital signs, or soothe and treat a wounded animal using the tubes of pretend treatments.

The Good Housekeeping Institute recognized the Melissa & Doug Examine and Treat Vet Play Pet Set for its ability to help kids develop empathy as they nurture the plush pets back to good health. And with the fun tote bag, your child can take this role play set with them wherever they go to make house calls as a vet.


Although the toy comes with two plush animals already, your child can use the kit on any of their stuffed animals. Tatiana has had tons of our out to treat in her pretend vet office.

If you have any real pets in the house don't be surprised is your child starts using the accessories on the real pets, too. Just make sure you they don't chew anything up!
