The iconic childhood toy known as the Teddy Bear dates back to 1902 and a moment of Presidential pity from Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt, when he refused to kill a trapped bear during a hunting trip. Popular newspaper cartoons of the day made the adult bear into a cute cub. An American candy shop owner linked the incident to his store with the use of two handmade toy bears he called 'Teddy's bears'. A German toymaker made the bears an international phenomenon a year later. With their round bodies, soft fur, and happy faces, teddy bears have become an almost universal symbol of childhood, safety, and security.
