Teddy Bear Picnic Day
Date When Celebrated : July 10 th
It's Teddy Bear Picnic Day. Spend the lunch hour on a blanket under a shade tree with your Teddy Bear.
Stuffed Teddy Bears are a kids favorite. Children receive Teddy Bears early in their childhood. Children cling to them throughout their teenage years. Many bears are kept, even as you become an adult. As you read this article, many of you adults know exactly where your Teddy Bear is.
The Origin of the Teddy Bear:
During the early 1900s, President Theodore Roosevelt was in office as President of the United States. He was a hunter. While hunting in Mississippi in 1902, he refused to shoot a small bear. The Washington Post picked up on this story, and made a cartoon of the event. Toy store owners, Morris and Rose Michtom, wrote to President Roosevelt for permission to call their stuffed animals "Teddy Bears". Teddy bears became wildly popular. Their company went on to become the Ideal Toy Company, one of the largest toy companies in the world.
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
One reader suggests that this day may have had something to do with a 1950's television show called Teddy Bears' Picnic. It was sponsored my Pet Ice Cream - Brown Bear and Brown Mule - chocolate pop-icicles.
