Does your Teddy Bear have a boo-boo?
Bring it this weekend to the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium for some repair and TLC.
Teddy Bear Weekend, a perennial favorite, will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Children ages 3-11 who bring their favorite stuffed animal for repair or care will get in free when accompanied by a paying adult.
Children also will experience health-related activities in a fun learning environment.
Will stitches be needed?
Stuffed animals will go through a checkup including X-rays, heartbeat, ear and eye exams and, if needed, a trip to the Emergency Room.
After the checkup, kids will receive a lollipop.
The zoo's bears will be part of the event, too. Be at Durham's Bear Canyon at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to watch zoo bears receive special enrichment treats.
