A toddler doctor costume is in order if you have one of those toddlers that just loves to play doctor. These cute toddler outfits are also a perfect gift for a toddler who will need a hospital stay or who is afraid of the white-clothed figure during his doctor check-ups: once it’s been played out a few times, the scary factor decreases drastically.
Do the doctors figuring in your toddlers life wear white coats and pants, or are they dressed in blue scrubs? What type of toddler doctor costume you choose will probably depend on which means ‘doctor’ to your child, though there is always time to re-define preconceptions.
If your toddler is a little clueless about how to enjoy his new toddler doctor costume, you can give his play a bit of impetus by joining in the first few times. Be the doctor and treat his hurt knee, fever, or cough; then be sick and ask him to doctor you. Or line up the animals and work together with your toddler as a doctor team treating them.
Whether or not you bought a doctor kit to go with your costume, you can certainly find plenty of things around the house that can make doctor play especially exciting. A little pillbox of skittles for dosing patients with; a collection of various sized bandages; stripped of linen for wrapping sprains: that is only the beginning of what you can do with common household materials. Have fun playing with your toddler: after all, in little people language, play is just a code word for learning.
