The year was 1902. U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt accepted an invitation to go on a bear hunt. After three days, they had found no bears to hunt. A well-meaning guide tracked down an injured black bear and tied it to a tree for the president to “hunt.”

What would the president do? He refused to shoot the bear. Newspapers across the country picked up the story and an illustration of the event was repeatedly published. Later, a New York City candy shop owner began selling toy bears, which he called “Teddy’s bears.” Thus, the idea of the Teddy Bear was born.

Teddy bears and bear cubs have since played an increasing role in popular culture. In 1926, the first of many Winnie-the-Pooh story books was published. Other popular bear cub characters include Brother Bear and Sister Bear of The Berenstain Bears, Nick Jr.’s Little Bear, and Koda from the animated film Brother Bear.
