Introduction

Get ready to cuddle up with your favorite teddy bear on February 10, also known as Teddy Day! This special holiday is a part of Valentine's week celebrations and is the perfect excuse to show some extra love and appreciation to your significant other. The first teddy bear was created in 1902 by Morris Michtom, inspired by a political cartoon of President Theodore Roosevelt refusing to shoot a bear cub during a hunting trip. From then on, teddy bears have become a beloved symbol of comfort and affection. So grab your own fuzzy companion or gift one to someone you care about – because there's no better way to spread joy than with a soft and snuggly teddy bear!
