I pass that model childrens' playground oppositethe Old Vic every morning on the bus every morning(or all day if I travel Abellio), and the delightful 3 Bears sculpture always brightens my day.

Well,first Mummy Bear dissapeared,now Daddys gone.

Are they being refurbed?
Working for the Olympics?
Or does the Old Vic need more wooden actors?

For the sake of Baby Bear,we need answers....

I thought Mummy Bear had run off, wasn't aware Daddy is gone, too.

Someone (also a bus passenger whose journeys were enlivened by the sculptures) contacted me about this a couple of months ago, so I asked Blackfriars Settlement.

The answer: "Sadly mummy bear fell over as it was rotten and was considered a health & safety risk and removed from the playground. No immediate funds available to replace."

I thought it was a comment on the London housing market.
