Tag spots an enormous teddy bear who turns out to be a real bear. They follow her to her cave and find out her name is Beryl. Beryl is shy and reluctant to join the Squirrels’ picnic as she does not have her own teddy. The Squirrels feel sad for her and decide to make her a teddy. Norrie finds a log for the body. Tag finds leaves for fur. Betty finds acorns for ears. Happy finds stones for eyes. Roly finds a slug for the mouth. The slug isn’t very impressed and slimes away.
