Fun Facts about Teddy Bears:

1. Origin of the Teddy Bear: The teddy bear gets its name from a historical incident involving former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1902, during a hunting trip, President Roosevelt refused to shoot a captured bear as an act of sportsmanship. This incident was later depicted in a cartoon, and a toymaker named Morris Michtom created a stuffed bear in honor of the president. This event led to the birth of the beloved toy known as the teddy bear.

2. A World Record Teddy Bear: The world's largest teddy bear was created in 2008, measuring a whopping 55 feet and 4 inches tall! The record-breaking bear, named "C.L.I.F.F" (short for "Children Love It For Fun"), was displayed in a shopping center in Thailand. It took a team of craftsmen over two months to complete this colossal cuddly creature.

3.Teddy Bears Have Their Own Holiday: Teddy bears are so cherished that they have their own holiday! September 9th is recognized as Teddy Bear Day, a day dedicated to celebrating these adorable stuffed animals. It's a perfect opportunity to show appreciation for your favorite teddy bear or even gift a new one to someone special.
