"Doc McStuffins" Comes to Boston!
August 18, 2013
The Doc Mobile multi-city tour is bringing Disney Junior’s acclaimed animated series “Doc McStuffins” to Boston’s Franklin Park Zoo on Sunday, August 18 with empowering experiences relating to health and nutrition for kids (age 2-7) and families. The event, free with paid zoo admission, features an area for kids to perform a "check-up" on their own toys plus other activities and age-appropriate health and wellness lessons including nutrition and physical development and fitness. (Fans are invited to follow The Doc Mobile tour route on Disney Junior's Facebook page and on Twitter at @DisneyJuniorUSA, #DocMobile).
In addition to performing "check-ups" on their own toys at the five interactive stations located inside a custom 27-foot Airstream trailer modeled after Doc’s playhouse clinic, kids can:
• Play in "Stuffy's Imagination Playground"
• Get active in “Doc's Stretch & Flex” area
• Learn about the importance of drinking water at “Lenny’s Hydration Station”
• Understand how to create a healthy balanced plate at “Doc’s Picnic Time”
Kids and parents will also have the opportunity to meet real-life doctors from Artemis Medical Society— an organization of more than 2500 female African-American physicians from around the world who formed their group after seeing a reflection of themselves in "Doc McStuffins." Recognizing the opportunity to further inspire young girls, the group serves to nurture, mentor and provide the foundation necessary to create a diverse physician workforce.
