My Little Veterinarian Kit Teaches Through Play

Kids learn what happens when a dog visits the vet through fun activities found in My Little Veterinarian Kit. They’ll love the lab coat and supplies inside!

My Little Veterinarian Kit

The Little Medical School began their exciting program in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2011. Partnering with after-school programs, camps, scouts, and other organizations, they teach kids about exciting medical careers using hands-on activities. The wonderful program has expanded to 19 states and now offers at-home kits, such as the My Little Veterinarian Kit,! OMG Goodies loves introducing wonderful STEM products to our readers, and this is one you’ll want to know more about!

My Thoughts About My Little Veterinarian Kit:

My friends and family regularly refer to my home as a zoo and they are not talking about my children! Our pets outnumber us. With three dogs, a cat, hamster, and Guinea pig, which are not all of our pets, we have enough for each of us to claim one four-legged friend. Needless to say, we find comfort in our furry family members and there is a lot of interest in learning more about them through fun and educational methods.

For several months my daughter, husband, and I cuddled together and watched all of the Vet Ranch videos. My daughter, just as I did, regularly considers the idea of studying to become a veterinarian. It only made sense that the second she found out a My Little Veterinarian Kit arrived at our house she hounded me to play with it.

The Kit

This STEM kit comes packaged in a medical bag-shaped box with a handle and Velcro closures for storage. Inside the kit, your child will find:

  • Little Medical School White Coat — your choice of 3 sizes: 5/6, 7, 8/10)
  • Student Doctor ID Badge
  • Plush Dog with Bandana
  • Adoption Certificate
  • Markers
  • Tape Measure
  • Pet Assessment Form
  • Modeling Dough
  • Dog Bone Cookie Cutter
  • Recipe Card
  • Tweezers
  • Tick Removal Stickers
  • Plastic Bag
  • Gloves
  • Diploma
  • Workbook

Inside the workbook, children find 6 necessary activities to graduate from the Little Veterinarian School. The first activity, of course, is adopting the adorable and soft plush puppy. The cute pup is just the right size for all hand sizes and is certainly huggable and pettable. Next, children learn how to perform a nose to tail exam. The short activities can be done at the same time or over a longer period of time — perhaps as part of homeschool lessons.

I found enjoyment in watching my daughter wear the child-sized gloves and the real lab coat while removing “ticks” from her new plush puppy, Stitch.

Once she measured Stitch with the included measuring tape, she decided to move onto our own dogs. This was when my daughter learned about the patience necessary when working with actual dogs. We laughed as Piper continued to sit down to avoid the measuring tape. Mila wanted to be involved – as long as she was not the one being measured.

By using the kit, my daughter learned about what to look for in a healthy dog and when to seek medical attention. She loves how the kit can be used over and over again, especially the bone cookie cutter and doggy treat recipe!

Connect with Little Medical School:

The Little Medical School’s My Little Pediatrician Kit, a sister product to the My Little Veterinarian Kit, was recently awarded the Tillywig Toy Award Brain Child Seal of Approval. Best of all, My Little Medical School donates a portion of the proceeds to Dr. Genie’s Kid Foundation, who helps kids learn more about medical careers by providing scholarships, books, and healthcare programs for underserved kids.
