We we fortunate enough to see these three cubs playing together at our visit to the Chengdu Panda Research and Breeding Centre.
The centre is, pretty much, Chengdus answer to the Eiffel Tower as its biggest tourist draw. But its definately worth the visit.
Visiting before 10:00 am (shortly after feeding time) and, preferably, before the temprature reaches 24 degrees centigrade when Pandas prefer to sleep indoors. The centre is home to both adult and cub pandas as well as the "Red Panda" which is a much smaller bear.
