What's the story?

Doc McStuffins (voiced by Kiara Muhammad), an aspiring doctor, uses her imagination to communicate and even "heal" her toys as if they were real clinic patients. In this soundtrack, Dottie "Doc" McStuffins joins her toy friends in singing about how to maintain good health and effectively handle a trip to the doctor's office. A few melancholy ballads by broken and sick toys may break some hearts, but more upbeat and positive tracks can reassure kids that everyone falls down sometimes. Those familiar with the Disney Junior series will delight in hearing songs by some of their favorite characters, including Lambie (Lara Jill Miller), Stuffy (Robbie Rist), and Hallie (Loretta Devine).

Is it any good?


This collection of songs from the Doc McStuffins series provides a great variety of both fast and slow songs that young listeners can enjoy. The soundtrack doesn't entirely consist of instructional tunes, so kids can also appreciate songs that build on the unique personalities of the show's popular characters. Highlights include "Time for Your Check-Up," "I Feel Better," and "Do What the Doctor Says."

Each song runs under a minute, which is an appropriate length when considering that the television series has short, 11-minute episodes. Despite the quick snippets, this soundtrack presents listeners with fun songs that successfully educate and entertain kids, specifically preschoolers.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what it means to be healthy. What activities do you do to stay healthy? Why is it so important to maintain good health and hygiene, even at a young age?

  • Doc takes good care of all her toys. What is your favorite toy to play with? Do you think toys should be treated with as much care as people?
