Doc McStuffins Cuddle Me Lambie Critical Blast

Valentine's Day is a day made for cuddling -- and nobody cuddles better than Doc McStuffins' friend Lambie!

However, when Doc gets a new stuffed friend from her parents for Valentine's Day, a heart named Val, Lambie feels threatened. Val's doing all the things that are normally Lambie's area of expertise -- giving out hugs, getting into photographs, and generally being the life of the party as she makes friends with all of Doc's entourage of toys. Doc has proven especially talented at fixing broken toys -- but what can she do to fix a broken heart?

"My Huggy Valentine" is the first story in this episode, which is followed by the tale of Teddy B, the once favorite stuffed toy of Doc's little brother, Donny. Teddy B has been sitting in the closet, discarded for a while now, and misses Donny. Donny misses him, too, but every time they're together, Donny's allergies set him into sneezing fits. Can Doc come up with a cure for Teddy B's case of the Dusty Musties and reunite these two friends?

Other adventures in this release find Awesome Guy over-taxing his muscles, Lambie missing out on a trip to Doc's school because of a leaky jam sandwich, a confrontation between Sir Kirby and the Wicked King, and other tales sure to please fans of this Disney Junior favorite.

While the stories remain suitably light in their tone, each one nonetheless delivers an important lesson for young children, presented in a simple, easy to understand format. The episodes also include the PSA-style questions during the credits about what you should do in a given situation. These follow the formula of three choices, two of which are silly enough that the right answer is obvious for your child to select.

The complete episode list for DOC MCSTUFFINS: CUDDLE ME LAMBIE is as follows:

My Huggy Valentine / Dusty Bear
Awesome Guy's Awesome Arm / Lamb in a Jam
Kirby and the King / Bubble Monkey, Blow Your Nose
A Day Without Cuddles / Collide-o-scope
