No contest. These folks are the consumate kids entertainers. MINNESOTA PARENT ---
The Teddy Bear Band inspires movement, imagination and fun for children, families, and your bear. The band acknowledges to the audience, You're in the Show! Soon the audience finds itself in the midst of a musical journey, going on imaginary rides, playing games, performing Bear-Robics & more. This upbeat musical show is targeted to a young audience, with opportunities for adults to join in the fun, and delight in the response of their children and grandchildren. (BYOTB - Bring Your Own Teddy Bear!) Participation is the driving force that connects children with the desired educational message.
