Teddy Bear Check-up

What do you do when a favourite teddy bear is feeling off-colour? Bring them along to the Teddy Bear Check-up!

Children brought their toy patients to this educational, pop-up surgery, built by Grasshopper in a collaboration with arts and health charity Helium Arts.

The surgery was complete with a waiting room, consultation rooms and even an ambulance to whisk poorly teddies to a team of student doctors.

Not only were the children brilliant at helping the medics care for all the sick toys, they also discovered what happens when you go to the doctor, how to spot symptoms of illness and that there’s nothing scary about feeling unwell and going to the doctor.
