Kids can give Blue a check-up! Listen to her heartbeat, check her temperature, and give her medicine. Place a bandage on her ears, legs, or arms. Check out her ears with the otoscope. Blue has a removable mask that she can wear! Josh will help kids through Blue’s check-up by suggesting places to check. When they get through all three spots, they have given Blue a thorough check-up! Lights in her cheeks, mouth, and chest also help guide. Includes a Blue plush, a stethoscope, a thermometer, a spoonful of medicine, an otoscope, a bandage, and a mask.
These interactive characters come with big personalities that kids can reveal when they give their cheeks a squeeze and watch them pop open. Each Dumpling features more than 50 light and sound reactions. Dress them up, tickle them, shake them, and toss them, and watch their little cheeks light up as you play. These collectibles will be available in August 2021.
