You want to encourage your young daughters to be ambitious and prime them to be doctors or even just handy around the house? Do you want to TV show your sons that girls can be mechanical or future doctors? Check out the darling "Doc McStuffins" now available on DVD.

Doc is a cute little six-year-old black girl named Dottie. She wants to become a doctor like her mother and tries to mend dolls and toys. She has friends who help her, toys that are only animated when adults are not around. The lessons include being courteous and being safe ("My helmet and me" teaches children to wear helmets when they are doing something daring or they might get injured.)

Another episode finds Doc apologizing when she can't at first fix a mechanical mouse. Yet she doesn't give up and asks her father for help.

Each episode is 11 minutes long and include original songs. The program is in its second season.

Want to entertain your pre-schooler? This Disney Junior program by Brown Bag Films is cheery and educational. You can actually view some episodes online or order the Blu-Ray and DVD on the Disney Junior website.
