Playtime for pandas: Cute bears take it in turns to have go on newly built slide

By Daily Mail Reporter

These cute and cuddly Chinese panda cubs are giving their carers the real run around.

Endearing footage shows the four friendly black and white beauties slipping and sliding down a custom-made wooden slide.

Living at the Chengdu Panda Base, dedicated to saving and breeding giant pandas and other rare animals, at times they act like little kittens.

Cute: The fabulous footage shows the four pandas slipping and sliding down the slide

Squealing: Emitting cute noises, the pandas role on their backs as they tackle the obstacle

All fours: This panda looks like he's having a whale of a time as he plops off the end of the slide

Emitting tiny squeals of delight as gravity pulls them down to the ground, they follow in the footsteps of their human keepers by playing on the equipment.

And they seem infinitely more active than their former zoo-mates Yang Guang and Tian Tian, who arrived at Scotland's Edinburgh Zoo for a 10-year conservation project on December 4 last year.

Pile-up: The pandas charge onto the slide and fool about at the bottom, pushing some of them over the edge

Hugs: It's a real scrum to try and get onto the slide, shown by these hilarious pictures

Chilling out: It's no surprise this panda has to have a rest after his exertions with his friends

The aim was for the pair to mate and breed, thus saving a species that is in rapid danger of soon becoming extinct.

But so far natural sparks have failed to fly between the couple and they remain panda cub-less.

VIDEO: Panda playtime! See the cute cuddly bears take their turns on the slide!...
