News: Spot the Teddies Challenge winners 2019

Teddy Bears Day Out 'Spot the Teddies Challenge'. 

Twenty Teddies of varying shapes, sizes and colours were 'hidden' in different locations around the Museum (some harder to find than others!). The first five best entries received (as judged by the Museum's publicity department) were from:

  1. Mace family, Woodford
  2. Christie family, Winmalee
  3. Oliveros family, Blacktown
  4. Sukkar family, Penrith
  5. Mestre family, Lugarno

The five clever winners have been notified by phone and email and a family pass to the Museum (currently valued at $45) is on the way to each of them.

Photos of the Bears in their locations are revealed below:
