Albany - As a child, you probably envisioned spending Christmas day at home with your family opening presents,  not stuck in a hospital room. But many kids will have to do just that this year. So, the presents are coming to them. Today, Chuckles the bear, and Lala's bear factory gave out teddy bears to kids in the pediatric unit at Phoebe hospital. Bear Factory owner Laurie Classon says she hopes the stuffed animals will bring a smile to their faces.

She says, "It's Christmas and they're in a hospital and it's the least we can do."

Terisha Smith, mother of two premature twins says, "It's good that they do this for the kids because some kids are going to be in here until Christmas and they may not be able to go home for Christmas so it's great that they do that."

This isn't the first time Lala's has donated stuffed animals.  They gave them out a couple of weeks ago, and the kids enjoyed them so much, they came back.
