You will have to forgive me for this parenting crime, but I would really love it if one of my kids pursued my early career dream and went to study to be a Doctor! I really wish I had trained to be one and is it really wrong of me to encourage my kids to think of this career path? I’ve been subtle in my influences so far, with carefully chosen toys and dressing up outfits! Now I’ve got the perfect book to go with the medical themed play scene. Wannabees, I want to be a doctor book.
What is Wannabees?
Wannabees produce imaginative roles play packs for children on different careers. Teacher, Cafe owner and Doctor. All great gender neutral roles. Naturally I wanted us to look at, I want to be a doctor.
It is so comprehensive and really brings to life role playing this profession.
Included in the pack were:
- Name badge and patient stickers
- Bed layout plans for doing hospital rounds
- Patient health records
- Eyesight tests
- Growth charts
- Patient examination forms
- End of bed notes
- Injection records
- Appointment cards
It was perfect for my two to play together with. At four my youngest loves the stickers and setting up the ward with his cuddly toys and at eight my eldest loves form filling and statistics. So it’s something then can happily divide up the roles and play nicely along side each other.
You never know I might just convince both of them to be doctors sometime in the future! If not, I know they’ll have had a happy childhood playing with each other and using their imaginations to inspire creative play.
Many thanks for Wanabees for sending us the book to review in exchange for my honest opinion. You can find out more in my advertising and disclosure policy.
