Why a giant bear popped up out of nowhere
A VERY special visitor dropped into Warwick last weekend, but for those who spotted him it might have come as a bit of a surprise.
The big fluffy bear, nicknamed Big Ted, popped up at a few events around town and even popped in to visit students at Warwick East State School for their last day of the year.
Principal Marina Clarke said the bear was part of a promotion for Toowoomba Real Estate Agent Blackbird and Finch, where a daughter of one of the teachers works.
"It was purely just for fun so the kids could have some fun on the last day,” she said.
Ms Clarke said the bear was so big he couldn't be carried and needed to be moved around on a trolley.
"All the kids and staff got a cuddle with him,” she said.
"They loved him, they thought he was beautiful and he was so soft.”
The teddy made the most of his time in Warwick, also popping into the Uber Markets on Sunday and did a bit of shopping.
