Dr. PetPlay Should Bring Out The Inner Doc McStuffins In Your Kids
If your house is anything like mine, Disney Junior’s “Doc McStuffins” is a must-see TV show. The animated show chronicles a 6-year-old who can magically heal dolls and other toys. And kids app developer Pretendasaurus is bringing that fun concept to life with their new app Dr. PetPlay, which is now available in the App Store to download. As the name suggests, the new app helps kids use their imaginations in a real-world setting with their stuffed animals. Designed for kids 6 to 10, the app is very easy to use. After starting, kids can select what kind of animal they are examining, and there are wide number of choices - all the way from a dog and cat to a T-rex.

My favorite part is the interactive X-ray that can be zoomed in and drawn on. There are hours of fun to be had with all the different animal types and questions. My daughter and I really enjoyed getting to play with Dr. PetPlay. She has a room full of stuffed animals, and had a blast examining each and every one of them with my help. Open-ended apps like these help kids just have fun and not worry about getting a high score. I highly recommend it as a fun way to spend time with your kids and let them explore their imaginations. Pretendasaurus is off to a great start, and I’m looking forward to seeing what other imaginative apps they can design in the future. Dr. PetPlay is only for the iPad/iPad mini, and it can be downloaded now in the App Store for $2.99. If you're interested in finding out more about how the app works, you can also download Dr. PetPlay Free to try out the app and one animal - the cat.
