My two-year old daughter received the Barbie Hug and Heal Pet Doctor Kit this past Christmas. It's one of her favorite toys. She loves puppies in general, so right there she liked it, but the puppy also makes sounds (bark, whine, pant), which elevated it to favorite. She'll sit for a decent amount of time and play with it pretending to feed it and give it a shot or take its temperature or carry it around with her. It comes with the puppy, pink carry bag and several accessories including a stethescope, thermometer, bottle, shot, bone and prescription pad. The puppy is very soft and silky and is absolutely adorable. It's also a good size, about 10-inches long or so. For a toy with a "talking box" inside, it's not too heavy for a little one to carry, either. It makes different sounds if you touch it's back, head and front paws. The carrier has a large main compartment that the puppy travels in and a smaller pocket in front for the accessories. Despite the brand, there's no Barbie doll with this toy. I don't have anything against Barbies, but our daughter is still a little too young for them yet.
