But as we adults know, there is a lot of work and study involved to achieve the dream. So why not start early when it comes to encouraging.
Flora (6) is one of those youngsters dreaming of looking after animals when she grows up. And with a budgie high on her wish list to Father Christmas this year, animals are definitely number one in the Hay household!
Experts at Playmobil, the masters of learning through play have the next best thing to the real deal. Their City Life Vet Clinic is just the ticket for budding animal lovers.
As Flora discovered, the large doors pull back to reveal a reception and examination area and there is a small enclosure section where sick animals can be treated and to help you along there are plasters, bandages and a model vet!
With parent and child figures included too, this set lets any child’s imagination run wild. And with 16 animals to practice on, there is plenty of experience for the would-be vet to enjoy!
