Veterinarian Starter Kit


What you get

Discover the important work that veterinarians do through hands-on play! Check up on a favorite stuffed animal with a stethoscope, syringe, and other handy vet tools. Explore animal anatomy by assembling organ and muscle systems. Play a "find the fracture" game using an x-ray lightbox and a set of animal cards. Learn to read cat and dog body language, and how vets understand animals when they can't talk. (It's ruff, but possible!)

I purchased this for my 6, almost 7, year old daughter because she loves animals and is always saying she wants to be a veterinarian. I think it can be difficult to find ways to share information with children and keep it interesting but this kit did the trick! It kept my daughter's interest for close to 2 hours and was educational without being boring or going over her head. I do believe some parts of the kit will continue to be played with for months.
