Teddy bear’s name
American President Theodore Roosevelt named because Roosevelt’s nickname is Teddy and he likes hunting. The name of the teddy bear is said to have originated from a rookie in Missouri in 1902. The assistant found and caught a Louisiana black bear, the assistant wanted to kill it, and Roosevelt refused to kill the trapped bear and criticized the assistant as “unsportsmanlike”. Then a political cartoonist quickly published the comic “Teddy's Bear.” The first comic appeared on the second day, November 6. Clifford K. Berryman, a comic editor for the Washington Post, recorded the incident in the form of a front-page comic. Berryman painted the bear sitting on the ground, Roosevelt with a gun, his back to the bear, and a gesture of refusing to kill the prey. At the bottom of the picture is the drawing “Drawing the Line in Mississippi”, which links hunting anecdotes to political controversy.

The bear fabric is high-grade Angora wool and South American alpaca, and the bear’s eyes are hand-made glass eyes from the city of Lauschaer, Germany. There is now a trend to use plastic eyes, which are also called safe eyes because they are not easily broken. Whether it is glass or plastic, the bear’s eyes are covered with hazelnuts.
