Blink and you will miss it. Yesterday, was National Teddy Bear Day. Have you ever owned a Teddy bear? Cuddled one? Still cuddle one? Well the day to celebrate was yesterday on the 9th of September 2019.
Origins of the Teddy Bear
According to historians the Teddy Bear came into being, after the president of the United States, refused to hunt and kill a baby bear in 1902. Back in those days, this was big news! So big that a cartoon illustration of the president not shooting a bear became famous. This picture soon inspired a toy store in New York to create what we now know as a Teddy Bear.
According to history the store owner Morris Michtom had to write to President Roosevelt to seek approval to call this new toy the "teddy bear,"
The Start of Named Plushies
The Teddy Bear is the original creation that started it all. Since the Teddy Bear, there is now Pookie Bear, Winnie-the-Pooh bear. All the characters from Sesame Street, the Muppets and countless other children's shows, all owe their named origins to the Teddy Bear.
