For immediate release

Gatineau, Quebec, January 22, 2020 — Doc McStuffins is always ready to lend a helping hand to toys in need. From January 25 to May 18, it’s the kids’ turn to perform check-ups and diagnose toy patients while learning about healthy living, compassion and nurturing care.

Join the magical world of Doc McStuffins as you help Doc and her friends while visiting Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit. There are toys that need check-ups in the ER, toy pets who need to be groomed at the Pet Vet, baby dolls that need to be fed in the Nursery, and so much more. Through imaginative play and hands-on activities, children learn important life-lessons about health and wellness. There is so much you can do to take care of you!

Doc McStuffins: The Exhibit is based on Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning series about a young girl who aspires to be a doctor like her mom, and magically communicates with toys. Aimed at children ages two to six and their families, the exhibition immerses visitors into the world of the hit television series that has been applauded globally for its modeling of good health practices and imparting to young viewers the importance of taking care of oneself and others.

The exhibition will be presented at the Canadian Children’s Museum, located in the Canadian Museum of History, from January 25 to May 18, 2020.
