All of us have grown up with toys and each phase of our childhood is associated with a particular toy. While infants have teethers to bite into and rattle to distract, toddlers have stacking toys. As the babies grow up and their cognitive abilities develop further, we need to give them a variety of toys to feed their curiosity, imagination, improve hand eye coordination, or simply to keep them busy.
It could be board games, Pictionary, clay art, toy guns or dolls. But one toy, which remains right through infancy to teenage, (sometimes adulthood too), is the stuffed teddy bear; especially for kids and girls. You can send teddy bears online either to a child, an adolescent or an adult, and there is no doubt each of them will love it.
Teddy Bears Make Adorable Gifts
Soft toys, also called as Plush toys, have been around since the 1830s. The more sophisticated ones were being sold commercially since 1880s in Germany.
The Teddy Bear has an interesting history, and its invention is credited to President Theodore Roosevelt. The soft toy is named Teddy after the President. The story goes that in 1902, the President took part in a hunting expedition in Mississippi, and he refused to kill a bear. The media published many cartoons of the President and a bear highlighting this incident.
On seeing the printed cartoons, a shop owner made stuffed bears and sold it in his shop. The bears sold like crazy. Later, with permission from the President, the shop owner named the stuffed bear as Teddy and sold them commercially.
So, the Teddy Bear is not just any toy. Its creation is inspired by none other than the President himself.
