Made for either gender, this costume and the props that come with it are sturdy, authentically detailed (even a clear plastic pocket for photo ID) and include everything a child needs for imaginative play with a real pet or all the stuffed toys in the house. The stethescope seemed a little flmisy compared to everything else but not enough to detract from overall high quality. Cap and jacket are washable and velcro allows even a young child to dress up without help. Batteries provide the stethescope with an audible heartbeat. Plastic syringe has a plunger but the "needle" neither moves nor has a sharp point, of course. Details are excellent. I'm so glad I bought this. It's difficult to select gifts online, but the "Melissa and Doug" line is reliable and consistent. We're still getting mileage out of the chef's outfit that's a year old and has been washed repeatedly.
