DIY Children’s Doctor / Nurse Set with Real Gadgets

My daughters, especially the little one she loves to play doctor, nurse or vet sometimes and they were nagging me for ages to buy a doctor role play set.

When I looked at all those plasticity and useless tools they sell in the toy stores I decided to make our own doctor case… with real gadgets.

All together did cost me less than £15 including the TicTacs and my girls can actually learn something: listen to the heart beat with the stethoscope, look inside the eyes with the pen torch or learn how to read the time on the nurse watch ;)

The kit turned out to be big hit for the half term holidays and rainy days.
