Dd loves playing Doctors but most of the doctor's sets I've seen have been really cheap plastic crap. Are there any nice sets on the market?

Toys R Us used to do a nice one, plastic but quite hard wearing, and worth buying for the epic doctors glasses alone!

DS2 loves his plastic cr*p one TBH. It's made by Klein (?) but was bought by ILs in Spain. Fairly sturdy plastic cr*p

The ELC one is very disappointing. Steer clear!

Agree about the ELC one, really poor.

Can you make up one of your own? I was just thinking, you could cut up real bandages to make them dolly sized, use those droppers you get with baby medicine for a syringe, what else? Do you dye your hair? With the hair dye I use, you get a little plastic pot with the rubber gloves in which would make a marvellous pill box.

We used to have a properish stethoscope, with a metal thingy on the end and rubber tubes - not part of a set - oooh, look here (scroll down) it's £5.99 but it works really well (if you get one don't let anybody tap the listening bit when you have the earpieces in, it hurts!)

I bought dd a real stethescope from ebay. It was only 5/6quid and it's brill - she's amazed by it and it helps when we go to the doctors now because when he wants to listen to her chest she knows exactly what he doing!

We've got a Klein one too, although it was from somewhere in the UK (Tridias, maybe?) Plastic but sturdy, still going strong after 7 years

We used to have 2 FP ones, I got rid - never occurred to me they'd stop doing them!
