You probably did not think about it at all, but yesterday it was Teddy Bear Day. How cute! Who did not have a Teddy bear as a small child? They come in all shapes and sizes. My own did not look like that after years of intensive cuddling. He had no ears, his fur was bald and here and there were some sewing stitches from my mother. I was jealous of my sister's Teddy Bear. It looked so beautiful and cool ... And yet I did not want to lose my Teddy. I even think that I still have him somewhere in the attic. Well stored in a box.
Not only for children
The Teddy Bear is of course not just for children. You can also regularly meet a Teddy in many living rooms. He gives the living room a sweet, warm atmosphere. The well-known residential label Riverdale, for example, responds to this. In their collection you can, among other things, find the Teddy Bear and really not meant for the baby room.
History of the Teddy Bear
For the enormous success of the bears in the United States President Theodore Roosevelt was responsible. All his friends called him "Teddy". In 1902, during a four-day bear hunt, he had refused to kill a young, defenseless bear that the hunters had caught before him. The famous cartoonist of The Washington Post Clifford Berryman captured this incident in his cartoon "Drawing the line in Mississippi" as an ironic commentary on a border dispute that was of great interest.
From then on, the bear became known as "Teddy's Bear" and Berryman did not miss a chance to process the bear in all of his following cartoons about the president.
These cartoons were the best advertising for Steiff and soon the Steiff "Teddy Bear" had stolen the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Americans. Partly fed by the stream Steiffberen from Germany, the "Teddy Bear Madness" took more and more America in its grip and from there also other parts of the world.
