A delightful tale of the first-ever teddy bear. The story goes that on a hunting trip in 1902, President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear. A political cartoonist shared the story in the newspaper and then, impressed by the president’s big, warm heart, shopkeepers Rosie and Morris Michtom decided to create a “Teddy” bear in his honor to sell in their store. The bear was so popular, they made another. And another. And before they knew it, they needed to build a factory: it seemed every child wanted a teddy bear of their own! History with a twist of fun! Now there’s even more to love about the ever-popular toy!
