Kids throng Doha Festival City's Mini Teddy Bear Hospital.

Children enjoy an activity at the Mini Teddy Bear Hospital at Doha Festival City.

Doha Festival City continues to welcome children at the Teddy Bear Mini Hospital to help them learn about healthcare in a fun and innovative way. Parents can bring their children along with their teddy bears until March 30, between 10am-8pm, to visit the hospital set up at Doha Festival City Mall Centre Court on the ground floor. Sponsored by Baladna, Toys R Us, Ikea, Mustela, Kulud Pharmacy, Carter's and The Hamilton International School, the Mini Teddy Bear Hospital at Festival City has witnessed a huge turnout and success during the first week, creating a fun and educational experience for children to help them overcome their fear of doctors and health checkups, by simulating the process of visiting a hospital or a medical centre. The hospital is run with the help of members of Qatar Volunteers. Children can take their toy companions through a medical screening, followed by a visit to nine different stations that include a waiting room, a nutrition consultant station, a surgery room, a dentist and ophthalmologist clinics, as well as a pharmacy. At the end, children can enjoy various giveaways from Mustela and Baladna, while Doha Festival City's Kids Club members get to enjoy fast track access. Doha Festival City is home to more than 50 brands for children, including popular names such as Mamas & Papas, Mothercare, Riva Kids, Sacoor Kids and The Children's Place, as well as debuting ones such as Mayoral, Kidliz, Cool Club, Idexe, Ziddy Kids, Petit Beteau and Little Milano. May Marzooq, senior marketing manager, says: "The Teddy Bear Mini Hospital is an amazing success and we look forward to welcoming more children during the weekend and the upcoming week. We strive to create memorable moments for all of our visitors and that includes our little ones. We would like to sincerely thank all of our sponsors and partners for supporting this special event."
