Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Doc McStuffins is an animated preschool series that sends excellent messages to kids about imaginative play, caring for others, and problem solving. Kids see 6-year-old Doc taking initiative to "heal" her toys, which typically involves replacing batteries or re-stitching a seam, encouraging independence and a can-do attitude. The fact that the show centers on an African-American family whose parents take on reversed gender roles (mom at work, dad at home) reflects society's diversity, and Doc's kid-friendly health tips are good reminders about basic personal hygiene.

Social Behavior

Doc McStuffins makes a concerted effort to forego stereotypes. Doc and her family are African American, Doc's mom is a doctor, and her dad is the kids' primary caretaker, who's often seen tending to naptime or cooking dinner while Mom is at work. Doc's interactions with her stuffed friends reflect preschoolers' vivid imaginations and greater awareness of people's jobs through role-playing.
