Packaging says "16-piece" which it TECHNICALLY is, but that includes 10 individually wrapped alcohol wipes and the bag everything comes in. Which leaves 5 actual healthcare items: toothbrush, gum massager, thermometer, medicine syringe, and nasal aspirator. The toothbrush is antiroll, and bulky enough for little hands to hold onto, but my daughter won't be old enough to use it for awhile, so I can't really comment on it yet. The gum massager is very sturdy and I use it ALL THE TIME since my daughter it teething. I let her chew on it on my finger, and even some times just let her hold it to chew on while I supervise since it's too big to really get in her mouth all the way. The thermometer is very small, which I like because of how portable it makes it, and I love the insertion gauge, it makes me a lot more comfortable if and when I ever have to take her temperature rectally. The only problem I have with the thermometer is the lack of plastic case or cover. I keep it in a plastic bag in my diaper bag to keep it clean. The syringe has grips on the base part which make it very easy to hold onto and not get knocked out of your hand. Lastly, the nasal aspirator: it's small which is great for storage, but I dont find myself using this when she's sick because the boogers get caught in it. I have a different aspirator that opens on the bottom for cleaning and this one doesn't.
