This eighteen piece doctor kit is actually a really cool set. The carry case is very sturdy and the plastic pieces are light and easy to handle for small fingers. I would not suggest giving it to really small kids, as it could be a major choking hazard. However, if you have a child that is a bit older, like my four year old grand daughter, it is pretty nice. I don't expect all the pieces, especially like the bandaid boxes, to hold up forever, but I know she is getting some hours of enjoyment out of it and that is all I could ask for.
