The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Educational Value

The album features lessons about how to maintain good health and effectively handle a trip to the doctor's office.

Positive Messages

This collection features many songs that encourage good hygiene and healthy habits when it comes to eating, playing, sleeping, and more. Tracks sung by Doc's broken and sick stuffed animals remind young listeners that imperfections are nothing to be ashamed of, and that no "boo-boo" is impossible to patch up.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The friendship between Doc and her toys assures listeners that a doctor-patient relationship doesn't always have to be an intimidating one. The characters that Doc treats in her backyard clinic understand how they can benefit from listening to the doctor's orders. This encourages kids to adapt a similar mindset and eventually overcome their fear of visiting the doctor.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Doc McStuffins: The Doc Is In is a wonderful collection of songs from the popular animated series on Disney Junior. Consisting of 26 different songs, this CD has a wide variety of tunes that can keep its audience entertained, track after track. In addition, no track exceeds a minute in length, which can prove to be a great plus for shorter attention spans. Songs about general checkups can help get children more familiar with the routine of a visit, potentially making doctor's appointments less daunting and parents' jobs a lot easier when it comes to teaching healthy habits.

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.
