The Beloved Jellycat Bartholomew Teddybear
Did you know that teddybears were named after U.S President Theodore Roosevelt?
After he refused to hunt a bear during a trip to Mississippi, "Teddy" is a nickname for "Theodore". When people knew about this from a cartoon in the newspaper, it became a popular story. Business oriented as the US citizens are, a store owner in Brooklyn made a stuffed toy bear and called it "Teddy's bear" since then, it has been shortened to teddybear and they have been an all-time favourite among children and adults.
If you love teddybears, you're officially an arctophile - a Greek word to describe bear lovers, arctos (meaning bear) and Philos (loving).
