It is stated that the name 'Teddy Bear' dates back to 1902, when a political cartoon was released featuring an incident that happened while the late US President, Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, was on a bear-hunting trip.
The cartoon caught the eye of one Morris Michtom, who was inspired to create a new toy - a little stuffed bear. He wanted to name the cute soft toys 'Teddy's bear' and sent one off to Roosevelt to get permission to use his name - and so the name 'Teddy Bear' was borne.
These days Teddy Bears are mass produced, coming in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes they are often the first thing we buy for a newborn child.
