Teddy Bears began with the American President ‘Teddy’ Roosevelt, who was fond of hunting. One day he found a bear cub which had lost his mother and his kindness to the cub was noticed by a newspaper cartoonist. Afterwards Teddy Roosevelt went to a wedding and, at the reception, was given some toy bears. He was delighted and someone suggested they be called ‘Teddy Bears’, after Teddy Roosevelt. Soon toymakers were making a great many toy bears for children all over the world.
