Teddy Bear



“Ali bear is really special because when my mum's mum was one she got this bear from my great grandad and she passed it on to my mum who passed it on to me.”


The Teddy Bear got its name from President Theodore ‘Teddy’ Roosevelt who in 1902 refused to shoot a bear that was tied up as he considered it unsporting. Morris Michtom created a toy bear in honour of the President and called it Teddy’s Bear.
