DVD Review - Doc McStuffins: Toy Hospital

TV-Y; 142 minutes; $19.99 ; Walmart
Arriving on DVD this Tuesday from Walt Disney Home Entertainment is Doc McStuffins: Toy Hospital, featuring the full-length adventure - Welcome to McStuffinsville, and 4 bonus episodes. As an added bonus the DVD comes with a fee Toysponder Bracelet.

Created by Chris Nee, Doc McStuffins debuted on Disney Junior in 2012 and quickly become a big hit for the cable channel. The series centers on Doctor Dottie "Doc" McStuffins, a seven-year-old who wants to be a doctor when she grows up. In the meantime, she settles for being a doctor to her toys, fixing up any injuries they receive from playing to rough. Doc even helps other toys in the neighborhood with the help of her own toys (Stuffy the Dragon , Hallie the Hippo, Lambie the Lamb, and Chilly the Snowman).

"Welcome To McStuffinsville" is the first episodes of the fourth season that aired during the summer. Doc's world is turned upside down when Grandma McStuffins reveals she has her very own magical stethoscope that can make toys come alive. Grandma gives Doc a toysponder that will transport her McStuffinsville, a big toy city where she will be working at the toy hospital.

The bonus episodes are all from the third season:

Baby McStuffins / Selfless Snowman - Doc and her little brother Donnie are excited when their parents inform them that they are going to adopt a baby. To get Doc time to practice being a big sister, her parents give her a baby doll. In the second story, Doc holds a stuffing donation drive.

Runaway Love / Tour De McStuffins - Fearing everyone will love the new baby more than him, Donnie decides to runaway from home. In the second story, after winning a toy bike with a racer named Stella, Doc decides to hold a racing event for her toys.

Bringing Home Baby - While their parents go to pick up the baby, Grandma McStuffins takes Doc shopping for a gift for the baby.

Baby Names / Night Night, Lala! - Doc's parents name her baby sister Maya. In the second story, Maya's toy named Lala is having trouble adjusting to her new home.

Final Thoughts: Doc McStuffins is one of the smartest written animated series currently on television for children. The main character, Doc, is kindhearted and very likeable. The "Welcome To McStuffinsville" episode is an adorable 46-minute adventure that opens up a whole new world (a toy world) for Doc, as she is now a doctor at a toy hospital. The other 4 episodes (7 adventures) focuses on "Baby McStuffins," the baby that McStuffins' are adopting.

Overall, I have enjoy watching Doc McStuffins: Toy Hospital DVD. All the episodes are adorable with colorful computer-animation and a talented voice-cast.
