Disney PLANES – Coloring & Connect the Dots Activities
The product featured was provided free of cost to me for the sole purpose of product testing and review. Please note that any personal opinions reflected in this post are my own and have not been influenced by the sponsor in any way.
I don’t get to see toddler grandson AL often enough for me, but he’s growing up fast in mind and body. “Like father like son,” Al loves television. However, rather than sports, he is into Disney Junior and three wholesome characters–Mickey, Sophia, and Doc McStuffins. They are where the magic begins. Mark them both educational and entertaining. I approve of these high quality first run pre-school animated TV series.
When I learned about Dottie McStuffins alias Doc, I had reservations about her as a positive role model for a little boy. Silly me forgot to remember it’s adults not kids who influence kids to boy toys and girl toys (like the train my father said was inappropriate for a little girl) and boy friends and girl friends rather than friends. Today I screened Doc McStuffins Time for Your Checkup, The Doc Is In! I won’t make that mistake again.
Time for Your Check Up centers on six year old Afro-American Doc, her animal friend toys Stuffy, Hallie, Lambie, and Chillie that magically come to life when she is alone. I like the show and I like the character Doc McStuffins. Too bad that producers do not build more shows on positive role model characters with intellectual aspirations.
This video includes:
- Gulpy, Gulpy Gators & One Note Wonder
- Tea Party Tantrum & Blast Off!
- Arcade Escape & Starry, Starry Night
- Bronto–Boo-Boos & Brontosaurus Breath
- Doctoring the Doc & Hot Persuit
Episodes (each approximately eleven minutes) are the perfect length for the attention span of a Terrible Two, Tantrum Three, or Fiendish Fourth. Humor, music, and surprises makes for an attentive audience things like to stop eating when full, not enough sleep causes crankiness, and be considerate of littler ones. Storylines that demystify medicine by doctoring broken toys serve as good example as well as a way to develop solid health habits early on.
This video is nearly perfect–no violence, no scariness, no sex, no profanity, no alcohol, no drugs, no smoking, no consumerism. What we learn from childhood remains with us throughout life. I give Time for Your Checkup 8 out of 10. I deducted two because I think it is important for show’s producers fail to show Doc regularly at play with other girls and boys.
Rated G with a 120 minute run time, find Disney Junior Doc McStuffins online and at local retailers come May 7, 2013. Its SMRP is $19.99.
Here’s a clip called Gabby the Giraffe.

I love to travel. No destination is too far or too close. I have traveled the four corners of North America. From Vancouver’s Pacific Rim to Mexico’s San Ysidro no man’s land to the U. S. Key West just 106 miles west of Cuba to Canada’s Old Quebec ramparts. Plains, trains, and automobiles, boats too, each has its own advantages. I know because I have done them all.
I used to be a great walker ambling and rambling from early morning late into the night. Hubby and kids constantly complained we needed a vacation from every vacation. They exaggerated a trifle. Life changes brought me my scooter. They thought it would be easier for them. HOWEVER…now I can go faster, faster, faster for longer, longer, longer. People I meet along the highways and byways are vocal with their “Got a license?”, “Wanna race?”, and cautionary “Better not drink and drive” comments.
Have scooter, ready to go–that’s me. A couple of years back hubby, the boys and I were in Hawaii. Hubby and the boys were due to ship on a super carrier for San Diego, an adventure I declined. They insisted I fly there before they departed. After all where would I stay, how would I eat, what would I do?
I scoffed at them, extended my stay in the suite we booked, opened a refrigerator full of four men and one woman’s leftovers, reminded them about Kalakaua Avenue, the International Marketplace, and the Aloha Stadium Swap, then assured them that I would survive WELL. Waikiki’s sandy shores and surfers, zoo, and Hard Rock filled in spare moments until it was time to jet back to the mainland and rendezvous with the boys.
The trip after Oahu from LAX to Union Station to the Coaster to the Metrolink to the taxi to the car rental to the hotel was long. I transported via scooter myself, my luggage, and my men’s from stop to stop. I almost wished I had taken instead the international plane for UK Manchester where ‘car hire manchester airport with Easirent‘ exists then I remembered the vistas and the people I met. What stories I could tell!
