Come and meet Big Ted and join Polly and Peter as they listen to the stories of his amazing adventures!




Elderly teddies may not be all they seem. Take Big Ted, for instance! Who would have thought this venerable old gentleman was once the hero of so many exciting adventures? Who could guess, as he sits quietly reading his London newspaper, how he once courageously chased off the Sun Prince and saved the realm of Snowtonia for the Snow Queen, or outwitted the fierce pirates to find King Neptune’s seashell, or carried out a dangerous mission fearlessly braving the witches to seek the princess’s lost pet? And have you ever wondered who delivered all the Christmas presents when Father Christmas was too poorly to drive the sleigh? Or who lights up the moon at night? Big Ted, now contentedly spending his days rocking gently in his rocking chair, tells his tales to Polly and Peter - and even takes them on an adventure of their own!
