The 2016 - TEDDY BEAR HOSPITAL in Geneva on April 27th and on April 30th for kids 4-7 years old

If you have kids between 4 and 7 years old then you shouldn't miss this fantastic event that takes places in Geneva every year and attracts many thousands of kids.

The Teddy Bear Hospital  (Hopital de Nounours) took place for the first time in 2007 and it's already at its 10th edition.
The objective of this event is to let the kids discover the Hospital in a fun and original way to help them to manage the worries and fears that sometimes they have about this place.
The association organizing the event has put in place a " dummy hospital " with all main department s and functions. Kids arrive there with their favorite stuffed animal who they pretend is suffering of a certain disease ;when they are welcomed at the "hospital reception" they explain  the illness for which they would like their teddy bear to be treated (it can be for example a broken leg, a stomach ache, a heart surgery and so on )
Kids then are shown the real process to take in charge and treat  "the patient" depending on the chosen sickness.
