We have always had various types of household pets since before we ever had children, so our three children have never known what it is like not to have a pet. Because of this, they are all animal-lovers. That is why I knew they would love this Play Vet Combo Set from CP Toys, a leading retailer of educational toys for kids. Wait until I show you all the things that are included in this set. It really takes pretend play to a whole new level . . .

Some of the items included in this playset are an 8" plush dog and cat, a veterinarian's coat with 3 pockets, a clipboard with medical forms, a vet doctor's bag, a working scale, a stethoscope, a thermometer, a clamp, a scalpel, and much more. One of my children's favorite items is the beeper, which runs on two included watch-size batteries, that makes realistic sounds.
Other products included are everything one needs to care for a pet, such as pet food, a pretend rawhide bone, pet vitamins and medicines, a brush, and more.
Something that is perfect to accompany the Play Vet Combo is CP Toys' Peek A Boo Kitty House. This toy comes with 5 beanie kittens in a handled plush house. Nothing could have been more perfect than this toy in a pretend play scenario involving a new litter of kittens going to see the vet in their cat carrier. The children just took this idea and ran with it.
Coincidentally, our twin preschoolers had a real life veterinarian visit their classroom recently. These two playsets were the perfect tools for them to show off what they had learned. I also took this opportunity to teach them about basic reasons why dogs and cats might need to be seen by a vet, such as fleas and worms.
You can find these and a vast assortment of fun kids toys on www.cptoy.com, including many CP Toys Exclusives.
Thank you to CP Toys for providing complimentary products samples for us to base this review upon and for providing additional product for our contest prize.
Good luck in the drawing!
