Probably like every other parent, I think my children have too many toys- but I just keep adding more anyway. Which is why I love finding toys and themes that are fun, further my children's interests, and are educational. It eases my guilty conscience. This Easter basket checked all the boxes for me.
1. Janod Body Magnet. This looks like so much fun. A great tool to teach your children about all the different systems that make up our bodies. It comes with cards, a ton of magnets- and a pointer! This has quite a few small pieces and is probably more appropriate for 6+ years.
2. Human X-Rays. How fun are these? Great individually and used as a puzzle.
3. Perfect for some hands on practice.
4. Every good doctor needs to take copious notes on their patient's condition.
5. This book is fabulous. It is informative, accessible, engaging, and beautifully illustrated. I think it's hard to go wrong with pretty much anything by Jenkins.
6. This is a game that needs no introduction. It's silly and fun and what kid doesn't love it? I always manage to lose at least one piece within a week but, thankfully, my kids have yet to notice.
7. There are really cute doctor costumes, and even a simple lab coat will work but these scrubs are just adorable.
8. The Fisher Price Doctor's Kit is a classic. There are several other pretty cool versions of doctors kits (like this Janod one) but for some reason I keep coming back to this one. I loved it as a kid and my kids love it. Especially giving shots.
9. Is anyone else's kid obsessed with putting bandaids on everything? If I gave my kid a choice between a sheet of the coolest, brightest, shiniest stickers and a box of plain bandaids, the bandaids would win. Every time.
