Doc McStuffins is in the house!!!! “Doc Mobile” tour kick-off

Doc McStuffins might not be in your house literally, but she’s in mine.  If you don’t know who Doc McStuffins is she’s an adorable little girl whose toys come to life and help her fix and take care of any toy that needs their help.  In 2012, Doc McStuffins was cable tv’s #1 series for ages 2-5, as well as the #1 TV preschool series in Total Viewers and Woman 18-49 (all those moms out there!).   And to celebrate the shows second season premier, Doc and her friends might be coming to a city near you.  Disney Junior will also be premiering the Doc McStuffins “Doc Mobile” game and other digital activities, on August 30.  Children will be able to create their own doctor avatar, which my daughter will probably go completely nuts for.  The season two premier, will also debut that day in a “special preview” form on the Watch Disney Junior mobile app.  If you haven’t downloaded, you can grab it for free.  When it’s connected to your cable provider you can watch more things.  However, Disney Junior has a couple episodes on there that are free whether you register or not.  The Cammo Style Love house has been known to take advantage of this great app while out and about.  Now, more about the tour:


The Doc Mobile, a 27-foot Airstream trailer custom-made to reach young kids (age 2-7) and families with fun and empowering experiences relating to health and nutrition will embark on a multi-city tour  SUNDAY, AUGUST 18 in Boston. Themed “So Much You Can Do…to Take Care of You!” the initiative is inspired by Disney Junior’s acclaimed “Doc McStuffins,” the animated series that models good health and compassion through stories of a young girl, a would-be doctor, who cares for her ailing stuffed animals and other toys. The Doc Mobile features an area for kids to perform a “check-up” on their own toys plus other activities and age-appropriate health and wellness lessons including nutrition and physical development and fitness.

 During the multi-city tour parents and kids will get the opportunity to meet doctors from the Artemis Medical Society, a group of 2500 female African-American doctors that formed their group after seeing themselves in the character of Doc McStuffins.  Their goal to inspire other young girls to pursue their dreams in the medical field.  Make sure to follow along on the tour by liking Disney Junior on Facebook and twitter.  You can already get information on the “Doc Mobile” page of Disney Junior.

*New* Octonauts Toys Review

Hello all!  Hope your weekend was wonderful and I excited to welcome you to another week with a little peak at some brand new Octonauts toys, available at Toys R Us.  We received a couple of toys to try out, and the littles in the Cammo Love house were thrilled beyond belief.  Especially one little miss in particular.

Here are some of the items we received
Perhaps the most loved among the group is the Octopod, the backbone of the Octonauts really.
It sells for $39.99 and features 10 play pieces, phrases and sounds.  It comes with Captain Barnacles and the Gup-A, which is by far the best part of the play set in Ami’s opinion.  The play pieces are cute and made well.  Its perfect for little kid hands and all of them, ages 18 months to 6 love this.  I have a feeling that adding to our little collection will be on future Birthday and Christmas wish lists.
I would also love to add one of these cute books to our collection.   Personally I can’t get enough of these characters.  In a world full of questionable tv for little ones, the Octonauts are wonderful.  They are sweet characters that teach my children how to work together, how to take care of one another and about the ocean.  Ami has picked up quite a bit of knowledge about sea creatures from the show, and I love that!  We then take that and move on to reading books in the library about Orcas, looking up videos on YouTube and checking out the Discovery Channel.
If your kids love the Octonauts then these are the perfect companion, and will most certainly be a success in your household.  One of the most important things I look at when I look at toys for my kids is the interactive qualities of it.  Can I take this toy and expand it beyond just the toy?  Can we talk about it, learn more and use that in our play?  These are the kinds of things that make a great toy and that’s what I think I’ve found in these Octonaut playsets and toys.
Disclaimer: I was provided these toys in exchange for my honest opinion and review.  I was not compensated in any other way.  My thoughts and opinions are my own.
