The Coolest Dr. Kits…EVER!

I have been on the hunt for a great Dr. Kit for my kids for a very long time and I’ve never found one that I like. I think the standard plastic Fisher Price ones are cheesy. Mikayla had one for awhile and I just found it to be annoying. Well, my friends daughter received a handmade Dr. Kit this summer from her Aunt with a few real things in it and from that moment on I knew I had to make one for my kids. So I expounded on her idea and made Dr. Kits for Mikayla and Camden for Christmas. I have been spending months scouring the Internet for inexpensive but real items that they could have in their kits. Everything in the kits actually works. I am so in love with these Dr. Kits and I’m still patting myself on the back for this. I think it is one of the coolest presents ever and hopefully the kids will think so too. I made each of the girls drawstring doctor bags (wasn’t able to find any cool black doctor lookingish bags at thrift stores) to put all of their stuff in. I also bought enough matching fabric to make them some scrubs to wear as soon as I figure out how to sew something that extravagant. The bags were my first sewing attempt.

I’m still on the hunt for some neck braces, knee braces or reusable bandages. I’d also like to find some clipboards, notepads/prescription pads and I want to print out some mock “take down” sheets for the patient information. Oh, and we still need to get each of the girls a box of Band-aids.

Next year I’m planning on putting these together and selling them on either Etsy or Hyena Cart. I’ve still gotta calculate how much they cost in materials.

So, here are the pictures. I have put captions underneath to explain what everything is.

    Sam, the link didn’t work for me but I assume it was a link for child sized scrubs right? There’s actually some very cool companies out there that sell them along with logo’d lab coats and everything…we’ve just reached our saturation level for what we’re willing to spend on them. :) Since I all ready have the fabric I figured I’d make my own. Thanks for the link!
