National Teddy Bear Day

September 9th is observed annually as National Teddy Bear Day. Whatever your age I’m sure we can all remember our favourite childhood companion, mine was a White Rabbit Teddy called Betsy, she’s still going strong today! Whether or not you still have your childhood teddy, today is the perfect day to celebrate your childhood friend.

In 1902 American President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub while hunting in Mississippi, it made National News! There was also a cartoon published in the Washington Post on November 16th, 1902 and is an instant Classic.

The Berryman cartoon of Teddy Roosevelt and the cub inspired New York store owner Morris Michtom to create a new toy. Michtom wrote President Roosevelt to ask permission to name the new toy a “Teddy Bear”.
