You are in for a Big Surprise…
Get a lift 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.
Age range: 3-8 years. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
No booking is required, but there will be a ticketing system on the day.
The Helium Arts’ Teddy Bear Check Up puts the child at the centre of a Doctor-Patient imaginative role play, as the minder of their Teddy to absorb self-care skills, first-aid, and to better understand basic medical procedures they might experience at the GP or hospital. Children become less fearful, more positive and Mum is happy knowing that the next trip to the doctor or nurse could be more relaxing.
Helium Arts’ Teddy Bear Check Up at LloydsPharmacy is created in partnership with UCD Paediatric Society, inspired by their Teddy Bear Hospitals.
