The story behind the Teddy Bear is that Theodore Roosevelt (26th President of the United States), nicknamed "Teddy", enjoyed big game-hunting. According to one legend, the teddy bear received its birth at Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. To cheer Theodore Roosevelt after an unsuccessful day of hunting, Hotel Colorado maids presented him with a stuffed bear pieced together with scraps of fine material. Later, when he did bag a bear, his daughter Alice admired it saying, "I will call it Teddy." The term caught on.
There are now teddy bears for all age ranges and price ranges. There is a teddy bear for everyone!
