Does your stuffed pal need a check-up or repairs? Whether you have a teddy bear, a monkey or an animal never before seen, we’ll make him or her fit as a fiddle! With Zookeeper talks, puppet shows, activities and more, the Teddy Bear Care Fair is one event that’s stuffed with fun.

Stuffed butterflies?

Absolutely! As part of your visit to Teddy Bear Care Fair, you can stop by the North Star Trading Post gift shop to stuff your very own butterfly for just $1.99.  This offer only lasts from March 21 - 24 so don’t let it fly away....
