Teddy Bear Check Up: Dates for the Diary

Helium Arts in partnership with UCD Paediatric Society are developing a Teddy Bear Check Up which will be launched this spring in a pharmacy setting in Dublin.

Children will be invited to have their teddies’ vital signs checked and student doctors will be on call to treat any minor bear ailments.

Dates for the diary:
Friday 28 April: Blackrock Shopping Centre
Saturday 29 April: Omni Park Shopping Centre












What’s in store
Come ride in the Teddy ambulance, create your own Teddy medical record, examine your Ted, and receive a prescription surprise.

Friendly medical students will be available to offer their expertise and real instruments for some imaginative doctor-play guided by the child.
