Why Bear Toys Are Called Teddy ?

History of the Teddy Bear

Teddy Roosevelt and the Teddy Bear

Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States, is the person responsible for giving the teddy bear his name. On November 14, 1902, Roosevelt was helping settle a border dispute between Mississippi and Louisiana. During his spare time he attended a bear hunt in Mississippi. During the hunt, Roosevelt came upon a wounded young bear and ordered the mercy killing of the animal. The Washington Post ran a editorial cartoon created by the political cartoonist Clifford K. Berryman that illustrated the event. The cartoon was called "Drawing the Line in Mississippi" and depicted both state line dispute and the bear hunt. At first Berryman drew the bear as a fierce animal, the bear had just killed a hunting dog. Later, Berryman redrew the bear to make it a cuddly cub. The cartoon and the story it told became popular and within a year, the cartoon bear became a toy for children called the teddy bear.

Who made the first toy bear called teddy bear?
Well there are several stories, below is the most popular one:
Morris Michtom made the first official toy bear called the teddy bear.
Michtom owned a small novelty and candy store in Brooklyn, New York. His wife Rose was making toy bears for sale in their store. Michtom sent Roosevelt a bear and asked permission to use the teddy bear name. Roosevelt said yes. Michtom and a company called Butler Brothers, began to mass-produce the teddy bear. Within a year Michtom started his own company called the Ideal Novelty and Toy Company.

However, the truth is that no one is sure who made the first teddy bear, please read the resources to the right and below for more information on other origins.

Family Portraits

I remember going through family portraits of many people years ago and it was a great pleasure to see families get together and took pictures.

But I hadn't seen a lot recently, the current society has changed throughout the years. People live in different places in the world for various reasons. Although unity still lives on earth but its at the brink of losing out to materialism. Even during Chinese New Year, people don't pay any effort to come back for reunion dinners...

It is sad to say that I rarely see any family portraits when I visit to different houses. It struck my mind to post this picture on my blog when the owner set it as her display pic in msn and I thought it was kind of cool expecially the 'expression' part.

To all the people in the world, Hold Your Values !
