Pros: Variety of "medical tools" the kit comes with.
Cons: I cannot think of any.
The Fisher Price Medical Kit is an excellent toy for role play.
I actually purchased the Fisher Price Medical Kit eight years ago when my two oldest children were three and four. It has been a durable and popular toy in our household. My two youngest children who are now three and four, play with the same medical kit and they have had endless satisfaction with this toy.
My children like pretending like they are a nurse or doctor. They use their teddy bears, dolls, or each other as patients. They make each other "feel better" with the use of their "medical supplies."
The kit includes a multi-colored stethoscope with a heart manogram on the front. A child can put the ear pieces in their ears and actually hear noise. There is also a multi-colored blood pressure cuff. The cuff has a pump at one end that turns a spindle on the arm band. The kit also comes with a red ear tool and a thermometer. The thermometer has a knob at the top that turns to reveal two different pictures. If the "patient" has a "temperature" the knob can be turned to reveal a frowning face. When the "patient" is "feeling better", the knob can be turned to reveal a smiling face. There is also a toy shot needle included. The needle has a rounded end where the needle would be. It also has a spring inside. When the top is pushed down it seems as though the child is actually giving a shot. Last, but not least is a plastic bandaid. The bandaid is shaped like a half bracelet. It can easily slip on and off a wrist or small ankle. This allows the bandaid to stay in place. All the medical tools come in a sturdy canvas tote bag with a picture of a medical person printed on the front.
As anyone who has children knows; children can be quite rough on toys. It seems my children have a goal to see if they can break apart toys. This medical kit has been tried and tested in my home and has proved strong and durable. All of the pieces are still in tact after eight years of play.
Overall, this is an excellent product. I would recommend this to any family with small children who have big imaginations. This has been one of my childrens all time favorites.
