My two kids both love role playing in the medical field. Bring on the white coat and stethoscope and they are happy! That’s the same vision behind Little Medical School’s launch of a retail line of kid-size healthcare wear, gear and activity items and they align perfectly with the need for more STEM products. These educational tools are irresistible to curious kids. I should know — mine LOVE it.
What is STEM Education
In a world that’s becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it’s more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying science, technology, engineering, and math—subjects collectively known as STEM. source

Look for the Little Medical School logo on My Little Pediatrician, Veterinarian or Sports Medicine Kits, White Doctor Coat, Organ and Skeleton Sticker Sets and more! The power of role-play, crafts and games to simulate a mini-medical student is the brainy concept behind Little Medical School. Their popular after-school and summer programs for future veterinarians, pediatricians and even sports medicine have been empowering kids coast to coast!

My Little Veterinarian Kit
This ‘mini-veterinarian school journey’ for kids offers a wondrous array of fun and exciting props and activities through which children explore the world of veterinarian medicine, science, health and pet care taking.
The workbook engages little veterinarians with activities that are as fun as they are enlightening:
- and learning about a dog
- learning about healthy snacks dogs can eat
- measuring the chest size perimeter and front leg length of the dog
- performing a ‘Nose to Tail Exam
- doing a tick check and removing tick stickers from the dog
- an introductory and graduation ceremony
My Little Veterinarian Kit promotes social development, cooperation, teamwork, creativity and problem-solving, among other skills.
When my two kids (age 5 and 9) can play together for over 30 minutes without fighting, I think that’s a big win. This product was a HIT in our house. They loved playing veterinarian and they loved bringing their new dog in to get his check-up. What a fun medical kit! They’ve even played it with their 9 year old cousin — and he loved it too.
