Did You Know?
The Teddy Bear was named after Theodore Roosevelt following a bear hunting expedition on November 14, 1902. T.R. refused to shoot a bear that had been tied to a tree by his guides, and a subsequent cartoon of the event inspired a Brooklyn toy maker to dedicate a stuffed toy bear in T.R.'s honor.
