Lakeshore Learning Pet Vet Clinic Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

My daughter, Hannah has decided that she wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up which would be an excellent choice because she is smart, empathetic and loves animals. When searching for a veterinary play set I turned to one of my favorite educational toy stores- Lakeshore Learning!

Lakeshore Learning is an exceptional resource for educational games, arts and crafts supplies, toys, educational software, children’s books and so much more. We incorporate many products from Lakeshore Learning in our homeschool but did you also know that it has wonderful toy ideas for the holidays too?

Lakeshore Learning Pet Vet Clinic Review

I am so impressed with the Pet Vet Clinic toy play set (SRP $39.99) that is available from Lakeshore Learning. This toy is sure to be a hit with young animal lovers and it is packed with absolutely everything they will need to take care of their beloved sick or injured plush pet friends. It comes with a 14” carrier, bandages, a thermometer, stethoscope, office supplies, cotton balls, office forms and a clipboard, tweezers, grooming brush, “medicine”, pet scale and so much more. In fact, it is extraordinary because it has so many more realistic looking accessories included with this set than any other toy doctor kit that I have ever seen personally on the market. You can even purchase a plush pet cat or dog for only $9.99 and a personalized vet outfit for $16.99 to make this set even more complete. This play set is such a hit with my daughter and son (her assistant) who had all of her “sick” stuffed animals ready to be seen by her in room which she transformed into a veterinary clinic. They took good care of their plush pet dog from Lakeshore Learning as they checked his heart and determined he had a stomach ache from eating too much dog food. They were such little professionals as she and Jacob role-played to find out each animals ailment and used their accessories from the Pet Vet Clinic set to fix their boo boos. This toy literally gets hours and hours of repeat play and I love that it encourages my children to use their imaginations and follow their passion for taking care of sick animals.
