Brace yourself for cuteness overload.

Fifteen baby pandas are the newest members of panda "kindergarten" at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China. At the weekend, the center held an opening ceremony for the 2016 class of cubs, which includes six sets of twins.

The pandas were bred earlier this year via artificial insemination and are "graduating" from the breeding center now that they're bigger.

The Chengdu center breeds and rears giant pandas to increase population quantity and quality, and has successfully bred 172 newborn giant pandas over the last 20 years. 

Giant pandas are an endangered species, and less than 1,900 currently live in the wild, according to the World Wildlife Fund.
