Teddy Bears are a common type of stuffed toys.

DescriptionEdit

Resembling cuddly-looking, vaguely anthropomorphic brown bears, teddy-bears are the world's most common stuffed animal.

First Teddy BearEdit

The first was created by a couple of candy store owners, and named the "Teddy Bear" after then-President Theodore Roosevelt. In thanks for the right to use the name, they sent their prototype to Mrs Roosevelt, and the Roosevelts kept it for several years before it was given to Scrooge McDuck in exchange for Gold Hill at the request of Scrooge's sister Hortense. Dismissive of the "children's toy", Scrooge only realized its great value as first-ever teddy bear 47 years later, at which point he began parading it as one of his greatest treasures.

Other Teddy BearsEdit
