Everyone remembers playing doctors and nurses when they were little because role-play for kids is a vital and memorable part of growing up. Role play is great for a child’s development, helping them to work on their communication skills as they play together, as well as boosting their creativity and problem-solving skills through play.

Finding fun role-play games for your children can be fun for the whole family, encouraging them to play together, which is why at BrightMinds our range of role-play games are the ideal addition to any child’s collection of toys and games.


Play Doctors and Nurses with the Djeco Vet Kit

Djeco Vet Kit Play Set

A classic for all children, doctors and nurses role play helps children to get creative whilst also helping them to learn all about how our bodies work as well as being kind to one another.

The Djeco Vet Kit gives children the tools they need to examine and treat all of their animal toys, they can even check their ears! Whilst this role-play set is aimed at children wanting to play vets, it’s also ideal for children interested in regular medical role-play.

Get Cooking with Tidlo Cutting Fruits

Tidlo Wooden Cutting Fruits

Children love to play at being adults, copying what the adults around them are doing, especially household chores.

Cooking is exciting for children, especially being able to play chef and chop their own fruits up with a ‘real’ knife. The Tidlo Cutting Fruits Set is the ideal gift for a child who loves food and playing at kitchens. Chop up wooden fruits that are stuck back together with velcro as they learn hand-eye coordination and safety skills that they can carry with them into adulthood.

Add this to the Tidlo Country Play Kitchen and let your child get creative with cooking, without actually cooking!

Playing Firefighters

The Bigjigs Toys Firefighter Dress Up comes with a firefighter's jacket and hat, equipped with a wooden axe, walkie talkie and fire extinguisher. Let your child become the bravest person in the entire world as they become their idol, whilst teaching them all about fire safety.

Time for Tea

The Djeco Lili Rose's Tea Party Set

Tea Parties are a great way to role-play, whether your child is playing with friends, you, or even playing independently and using their imagination to serve tea to their dolls.

Creating a tea party atmosphere is ideal for role-play, allowing children to get creative with their toys as well as work on their manners as they play host. 

The Djeco Lili Rose’s Tea Party is great fun and comes with everything they might need to play tea party, including a wooden cake to chop up and a tray for carrying it around to offer to more people. Enjoy quality time together over tea and cake (but don’t actually try to eat it)!
