2021 Teddy Bear Hospital
This Easter, for one day only, bring your child and their favourite teddy for a check up at the Teddy Bear Hospital!
You’ll be greeted by our wonderful teddy doctors, who will help you to listen to your teddy’s heart and lungs. Next check Teddy's growth by measuring its height and weight! Our nurses will then check Teddy’s heart rate and rhythm with a fancy machine called an ECG. At radiology you can scan Teddy’s bones and take home the x-ray! At pathology lab, see the difference in germs on Teddy’s paws before and after a good hand wash. But there’s more to health than that! Next get Teddy’s eyes and teeth checked, talk about what makes Teddy happy or sad, assess Teddy’s speech and hearing, and test out Teddy’s strength by going through Physiotherapy’s obstacle course!
This year due to COVID-19 it is a pre-ticketed event. Good Friday April 2nd 2021
