Did You Know…


Did you know teddy bears got their name from President Theodore Roosevelt?

Yes, in November, 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt went on a hunting trip in Mississippi. The other members of the hunting party tied a bear to a tree for President Roosevelt to shoot, but Roosevelt refused to shoot the helpless bear. The next day, political cartoonist Clifford Berryman, drew a cartoon showing President Roosevelt refusing to hurt the bear. From this event, stuffed teddy bears were made and called "Teddy's Bears." Read about the History of the Teddy Bear.
