About Teddy Bears

A teddy bear is often a child's first companion, a soft toy in the form of a bear. Originally designed early in the 20th century, by toymakers Morris Michtom in the United States and Richard Steiff in Germany, the creation was named after President Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt.

Throughout the years, the teddy has transformed immensely and come in many shapes, styles, colors, sizes and is made from wide variety of materials from, synthetic fur, denim and velour fabric.

The bears are often inspired by real animals from polar bears to grizzly bears and pandas. Early teddies looked a lot like real bears with big beady eyes and long noses, while modern teddies have large eyes and smaller noses.

The fluff, fur and cute face is more than just a teddy bear to babies and young children. Research has shown that during the unavoidable separation of mother and baby, the teddy bear becomes a transitional object that reminds the child of their mother and offers support and comfort when needed. The humble bear helps to build the self confidence of the the child, and ease stress and overcome fear and anxiety.

Teddies that have frequently appeared in popular culture, with Christopher Robin's teddy bear, Winnie the Pooh by author A. A. Milne, Paddington Bear, Teddy Ruxpin, the Care Bears and the Forever Friends bears, just to name a few. Today the most popular brands that manufacture modern bears are GUND and Ty Inc.
