Giving your little one a doctor play set might sound kind of silly in an adorable way, but it’s actually an excellent toy option for curious minds. Doctor sets for kids are fun for them to play with because children, especially toddlers, absolutely love to play with items that they see adults using all the time—you know, the things we find to be boring and uninteresting. A toy doctor kit can also be really educational: as they play with each piece, they’re probably going to ask you questions about them. It’s a great time to teach them some medical basics so that they learn how each item is really supposed to work.

For kids who are terrified of going to the doctor, a doctor set toy may help alleviate the fear. Once they start playing with the tools they see their real life doctor using, they might start to find these items less intimidating and more interesting. And if they get to dress in a little doctor outfit, they’ll probably love seeing an actual doctor in front of them. It could even make them excited for future appointments!

A toddler doctor kit makes a great gift as little ones grow up and begin to understand the world around them a bit more. There are lots of options for doctor toys out there, but we read reviews and checked out all the details to find some of the best kids doctor kits out there. Check them out:
