The kit was all-plastic and seemed durable, with plenty of items with which a modern doctor will be familiar! The electronic pager seemed to emit authentic sounds and the stethoscope produced some realistic noises too. My five-year-old granddaughter was intrigued with the set - the many instruments giving rise to useful discussion. She kept returning to it throughout the day. My guess is that it was both instructive and diverting and so was good value. Perhaps I should have bought the child's white coat to go with it too!
Promptly received, but I was disappointed to find that the disc of 'Holiday Camp' contained a digital error which always stopped the disc at the same place (after about 30 minutes), making it worthless. Regrettably, I would not recommend purchasing this set for this reason.
