years Teddy bear became children's most favorite plaything.
Let us look at the history of Teddy bear.
Former US President Theodore Teddy Roosevelt
loved animals though he was an avid hunter.
In 1902 almost a century ago, he went to solve the border dispute between
the states of Louisiana and Mississippi.
During a break his friends invited him to go for bear hunting. After a while when they could not hunt any bear his friends
brought one baby bear to him and asked him to shoot that baby bear.
refused to shoot that helpless captive baby bear, believing such an act to
be beneath his dignity as a hunter and as a man: "If
I shot that little fellow I couldn't be able to look my boys in the face
the news spread about this incident and cartoonist Clifford Berryman in
the Washington Post drawn this picture on Nov. 16, 1902.
Russian immigrant, Morris Michtom, saw this cartoon. He and his
wife, Rose, ran a small candy and stationery store in Brooklyn, New York. They created a bear, named it "Teddy's Bear" and
placed it in the window of their store.
The bear was sold quickly.
At that time they were creating stuffed toys and in 1903 they started making stuffed Teddy bear.
