My almost 3 year old son knocked his teeth out at the playground so visiting the dentist started to become a traumatic event for him...until we bought this toy! He played with it everyday up until his next dentist visit. We each took turns and pretended to be Dr. Todd (his dentist). After 2 weeks, we went to his dental appointment, and it went great. Love this toy! I recommend this for any little one who is approaching his first dentist appointment.
