Doc McStuffins now open at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis
One of my kiddos favorite places to go is The Children’s Museum! I can totally understand that. They can touch everything in the museum and I will have to admit I like it myself! If you live in Indianapolis there is a new exhibit that you will want to check out! Doc McStuffins now open at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and will be traveling to other museums in 2017!!
The bilingual (English/Spanish) interactive exhibit will transport kids and families into Doc’s iconic backyard clinic and the McStuffins Toy Hospital. There, young visitors go on a “feel better adventure” as they become “doctors in training,” don a white coat and toy stethoscope, “scrub in” (learning the importance of washing hands to avoid germs), report to an “operating room” where they can fix seams on a toy bear, assist in an “operation” on a toy dragon robot, and use Doc’s tools including a toy otoscope, stethoscope, thermometer and blood pressure cuff to give a checkup to their own toys.
“It is a heavy order to convince children that going to see the doctor is not scary,” said Dr. Paul Haut, chief medical officer of Riley Children’s Health. “But it can be done through educational and interactive experiences, which help them understand that what we do is help keep people healthy. By teaching visitors about healthy habits, such as practicing good hand hygiene, exercising regularly and eating well, we hope this exhibit will put children’s minds at ease, while supporting our mission to keep all Hoosier children healthy.”
“Doc McStuffins serves as a great role model to children and adults, encouraging them to explore the importance of taking care of their own bodies as well as caring for others,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “Through imaginative play, we hope our visitors will learn more about health, science, and medicine, and discover that children can be anything they want to be when they grow up.”
