Teddy bear

A teddy bear is a soft toy in the form of a bear. Developed apparently simultaneously by toy makers  Morris Mich tom in the U.S. and Richard Stiff in Germany in the early years of the 20th century, and  named after President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, the teddy bear became an iconic children's toy,  celebrated in story, song, and film. Since the creation of the first teddy bears which sought to  imitate the form of real bear cubs, "teddies" have greatly diverse in form, style and material. They have become collector's items, with older and rarer "teddies" appearing at public auctions. Teddy bears are among the most popular gifts for children and are often given to adults to signify love, congratulations, or  sympathy.........

The name teddy bear comes from former United States President Theodore Roosevelt, who was commonly known as "Teddy" (though he loathed being referred to as such).The name originated from an incident on a bear hunting trip in Mississippi in November 1902, to which Roosevelt was invited by Mississippi Governor  http://dai.ly/x312wfgAndrew H. Longing. There were several other hunters competing, and most of them had already killed an animal. A suite of Roosevelt's attendants, led by Holt Collier cornered, clubbed, and tied an American black bear to a willow tree after a long exhausting chase with hounds. They called Roosevelt to the site and suggested that he should shoot it.
