See Shaun the Sheep At This Year's Teddy Bears Picnic
Why not grab your favourite "ted" and come on down to the Teddy Bears picnic! I have never been to one of these, so I intend to take my granddaughter, as she loves teddies of all sizes and shapes.


This year, the Teddy Bears Picnic will be held in beautiful Manning Park and will be a FREE event which will include a live performance and meet and greet with Shaun the Sheep.

Shaun the Sheep is a British animated television series and spin-off of the Wallace and Gromit franchise. The series stars Shaun, who was previously featured in the 1995 short film A Close Shave amongst others and he has madcap adventures around a small farm as the leader of his flock.

As well as Shaun there will be information for parents and carers, plus the following:

Parenting information and advice
Hello Baby corner, which includes free parent massage and 'welcome baby to country'
Cuddly farm animals
Teddy bear 'fairy' storyteller
Teddy bear biscuit decorating
Arts and crafts
Parachute play
Hello Baby (welcoming new ones into the Cockburn community) is now part of Teddy Bears Picnic

There will be food and drinks available to purchase (cash only), and you will be able to buy ice cream for the children for just $1 as well as teddy lunch packs for $2.50 - and these will be provided by "Friends of the Community".

Teddy Bears now caters for families with children from 0 to 5 as it now includes "Hello Baby". Make sure to check out the Hello Baby corner for all your baby information, free baby certificate and free calendar.

Trivia about Teddy Bears Picnic
This originated in the United States, Canada, Australia, and in some parts of Europe, however the origins of this unofficial day are unknown. The day owes its name to a song of the same name by American composer John Walter Bratton and Irish lyricist Jimmy Kennedy. The teddy bear stuffed toy was named after American President Theodore Roosevelt, Jr!

The Teddy Bears Picnic event has been held annually by the City of Cockburn since its inception in 1980. During those first few years, it was "a low-key event" held at Spearwood's MacFaull Park, and it moved from its original place several years ago, to the grounds of the Azelia Ley Museum in Manning Park.

It has now grown to be a very popular annual event for the City and the community, with loads of free activities and entertainment for the children, as well as information and services available for the parents.
