Teddy bears are one of the most adorable things to exist in this world. After the Titanic sank in 1912, German toy company Steiff created 500 teddy bears to honor the victims. The smallest commercially available stitched teddy bear is a mere 0.29 inches tall.
Teddy Bear got its name from the Late President Theodore Roosevelt after an incident where he refused to shoot a defenseless bear during a hunting trip.
Teddy Bear Picnic Day was created based on the popular song of the same name, “The Teddy Bears' Picnic”. The song is a classic one, written to the tune of a song composed in 1907 by American John W. Bratton. The lyrics were added later, in 1930, by Jimmy Kennedy, a British songwriter.
