Teddy Mountain Birthday Parties

We’re now offering Teddy Mountain Birthday Parties, a great party activity plus a Teddy for every child. Each Teddy comes with their arms, legs and heads pre-stuffed so the child will only need to stuff the Teddy. The children also get a wishing heart to put in the Teddy and a certificate to name their new furry best friend and the birthday child receives a free outfit for their bear. All of our teddies have been tested from the age of 3 years and up. Give your children a great experience of bringing their bears to life!
