Faith loves to stop at the bears – can you find where they are in town?

If you go down to the woods today … go in disguise, you’ll be surprised!
It all started with one lost teddy bear strapped to a tree in the hope the owner would find it; but this is not how the story ends. Along came another bear, then another bear, until the secret location turned into a Teddy Bear’s Picnic.
The mystery remains. Who initiated the picnic? Nonetheless, our local community enjoy watching children discover the bears. And the lost teddy, well… he likes his new home.
Ashley Harris, full-time single dad said, he gets into trouble if he drives past the bears without stopping. His five-year-old daughter Faith, insists on playing with the bears after school.
What do teddy bears eat? “Chocolate, mango, strawberries, apples, and jelly!” says Faith, eyes sparkling. “I always make my bed and put my teddies where they are supposed to be, neat near my pillow.”
