Did you know that the teddy bear was named after a President of the United States? The origin of the teddy bear back to a traditional story, which took place in 1902, which involved President Theodore Roosevelt. The President was in Mississippi, trying to resolve a border dispute between Mississippi and Louisiana. Your hosts knew that the President was a dedicated hunter, so you take him hunting. The only bear I could find was a small bear that was tied to a tree. The President declined shooting, as he saw no sport in killing a helpless animal.

The story came out, and an editorial cartoonist for The Washington Post Clifford called Berrymandrew a cartoon showing a bear cub tied to a tree, and Teddy Roosevelt refusing to shoot it. The cartoon had the caption "draw the line in Mississippi. "The cartoon provoked an immediate sensation and was reprinted several times. The owners of a candy and stationary store in Brooklyn, New York, named Morris and Rose Michtom were inspired by the Law of the President and made a teddy bear after him. They formed the teddy bear look like a bear in the cartoon, and put in the window of his shop. Along the bear was a copy of Berryman cartoon and a sign saying teddy. The public created a demand for the bear that joined Michtoms with higher firm named Butler Brothers and started the Ideal Novelty & Toy Company, the first teddy bear factory in the United States.

Made of materials low cost to more exotic leather, and the size of a thimble to very large, has been a perennial favorite of children and adults ever since.
