‘Embracing the Furry Love: Celebrating Teddy Bear Day’

Teddy Bear Day, the day when we all get to bask in the warm embrace of our lovable furry pals who have stood by us through good times and bad. Let’s explore the endearing history, the importance of teddy bears in our lives, and how we may commemorate this particular day as we pay tribute to these adorable animals.

How Teddy Bear Day Started:

Teddy Bear Day has its roots in an interesting historical event that involves none other than Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States. President Roosevelt was given the opportunity to kill down a bear that his fellow hunters had captured and strapped to a tree in 1902 while on a hunting expedition in Mississippi.

Clifford Berryman, a political cartoonist, was inspired by this admirable deed to illustrate the story in a cartoon that appeared in The Washington Post. A Brooklyn candy shop owner named Morris Michtom was inspired to make a plush bear, which he named “Teddy’s Bear,” in honor of the President after seeing a cartoon in which Roosevelt was shown saving the bear.

The classic teddy bear was born when the toy became an instant hit. Teddy Bear Day honors this endearing story of friendship and kindness.

The Value of Plush Animals
