How does Follow the Bear ® Work?
How does Follow the Bear ® work?
When a child gets lost they simply 'Follow the Bear ® - Lost Child Trail' signs which has our Freddie Bear design on, he has directional arrows on his tummy which enables the child to find their way to a ‘Safety Station’.
Once they get there, the member of staff can look at the Follow the Bear ® - Lost Child Wristband and call the Parent/Guardian mobile number that is written on the wristband and inform them that their child has been found and is being kept safe at the ‘Safety Station’ and where it is.
Each participating facility can offer Follow the Bear ® - Lost Child Wristbands to their Customers/Visitors free of charge and these can be issued by either your Ticket Office/Receptionist, Security Staff or Cleaners; or obtained from wristband dispensers that can be installed at the entrances and an A2 or A1 info graphic board with animated characters demonstrating how the scheme works can be provided along with a disclaimer notice. (details can be provided upon request)
Positive feedback has been received from participating facilities about Parents and Children identifying with Freddie Bear and the Follow the Bear - Lost Child Trails; and the children that have been lost are following the trail to a ‘Safety Station.’
