How Teddy Got His Name!

In 1902, American President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub while hunting in Mississippi.

This incident made national news. Clifford Berryman published a cartoon of the event in the Washington Post on November 16th, 1902.  The caricature became an instant classic. It inspired a New York store owner Morris Michtom to create a new toy.  Morris Michtom wrote President Roosevelt to ask permission to name the new toy a “Teddy Bear”.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is giving away a free stuffed toy with any $15 purchase to celebrate National Teddy Bear Day in stores on September 8-9, 2018. I hope it won’t flop like the last time they did a promotion. I am sure this is based on certain conditions too. See each store for details.
