Teddy Bears are available in all shapes and sizes. They provide comfort in times of turmoil and protect us from the monsters lurking in the dark. Whether they are fury or woolly, old or new, big or small, Teddy bears are the childhood friend that never lets us down. Bring your Teddy Bear to work day celebrates the origins of the Teddy and all that you love about your bears.
The History of the Teddy bear.
A teddy bear is a soft toy in the form of a bear. Developed in the 20th century by toymakers Morris Michtom and Richard Steiff, named after US President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, and is now an iconic children’s toy.
The name teddy bear, according to popular legend is based on an incident between President Roosevelt and a bear hunting trip in 1902. Roosevelt was the last hunter from the exhibition, who had yet to shoot a bear. His attendants hunted down a bear, cornered it and clubbed it into submission. The bear was then tied to a tree for the President to shoot. Roosevelt refused to shoot the bear, on the grounds that it was entirely unsportsmanlike, and it took no time at all for cartoons and stuffed bears to emerge called “Teddy Bears”.
Bring your bear to work day is your reminder that your childhood companion never abandoned you, and they deserve t not be abandoned by you.
