We were thrilled to help kick off Disney Juniors Doc McStuffins’s Mobile Tour in Boston! My five year old daughter is a huge Doc McStuffins’s fan! The 27 foot air stream trailer, made to look like Doc McStuffins very own play house was set up right inside the entrance at the Franklin Park Zoo. We arrived about an hour after opening and the line was LONG. Parents and kids, grasping their favorite stuffed friends, waited patiently for their chance to check out the Doc Mobile experience.
About the tour:
The health initiative “So Much You Can Do…to Take Care of You!” is inspired by everyone’s favorite doctor, Disney Junior’s own Doc McStuffins.
When kids visit the Doc Mobile with their families they’ll have a chance to perform a “checkup” on their own toys and participate in age-appropriate health and wellness lessons that include nutrition, physical development, and fitness.
Doc McStuffins will be on hand to greet her fans at select stops on the tour. Kids and parents will also have a chance to meet real-life doctors from the Artemis Medical Society, an organization of more than 2,500 female African-American doctors who formed their organization after seeing a reflection of themselves in Doc McStuffins. The group aims to mentor and inspire young girls and create a diverse physician workforce.

Upon entrance to the multi-station set up, kids had the chance to play a game on touch screen computers where they tried to help Hallie Hippo catch healthy food. With things like cookies, cakes and even old shoes falling from the sky Adeline did a pretty good job picking out the healthier treats like fruits and veggies.
Next up the super energetic Disney Radio team got the kids moving and grooving their way to being healthy. The kids loved dancing to the songs while learning tips such as exercise everyday and brush your teeth twice a day.
After all that moving and grooving it was the perfect time to talk about staying hydrated! Kids had the chance to hydrate Lenny the firetruck by pouring water through tubes to fill him up. We also got some super cute Disney Water Bottles for our own hydration.
Then the kids had a chance to create a healthy balanced plate by decorating their own placemat with crayons and stickers. Adeline could have sat for hours coloring hers!
The part that everyone was waiting for was next! The kids got to put on their very own white doctor coat with a stethoscope and enter Doc McStuffin’s office. There they could measure themselves and their stuffed friend, and also perform a complete checkup on their stuffed animal, just like their favorite character Doc McStuffin.
Adeline had so much fun pretending to be a doctor and hanging out in Doc’s “office”. She really got into measuring her bear “Pink” and filling out her medical chart. She was sad when the experience was over but luckily we had the entire Franklin Park Zoo to explore. Get ready to read all about that experience later in the week.
