Ready, teddy, go (slideshow)


Storytellers, face painters and plenty of furry friends kept the littlies entertained at Winter Festival’s Cookie Time teddy bears’ picnic today.

Queenstown Events Centre was packed with bears and youngsters enjoying the free family day.

Rebecca Hogan, visiting from the Gold Coast, brought her kids along to play on the bouncy castle and get transformed into animals.

“Our kids are more excited about coming to the teddy bears picnic than going skiing,” she says.
