Kids bring teddy bears to the doctor

A trip to the doctor can be tough for anyone, but it can be especially frightening for kids. So these kids brought their teddy bears along for comfort. The Kelsey Seybold Clinic on West Holcombe in southwest Houston held a free teddy bear clinic on Saturday. Doctors performed checkups on both the kids and their stuffed animals.

Doctors hope the teddy bears, along with balloons and face painting, will help children overcome their fear of the doctor's office.
