The World's Most Famous Teddy Bears

The teddy bear, that adorable 20th century icon and everyone's favourite childhood soft toy, has an enviable pedigree. Inspired into existence more than a hundred decades back by no less than a former President of the USA at America, and almost simultaneously in Germany, teddy bears proceeded to catch the public imagination as no other stuffed toy has done thus far. It had been cuddly, endearing and comforting. Small wonder than almost everyone, from distinguished statesmen to the child in the area clamoured for one.

Teddy bears are, undoubtedly, everybody's favorite stuffed animal.

Here are a Few of the all-time favourites:

1. Winnie the Pooh / Pooh Bear

Winnie the Pooh is arguably one of the most well-known bears . His birth has an interesting story...

During a routine stop of a train carrying soldiers from Winnipeg (Manitoba, Canada) to eastern Canada during the WWI, at White River, Ontario, a young lieutenant Harry Colebourn bought a small female black bear cub from the guy who'd just shot its mother. The orphan was named'Winnipeg', after his hometown of Winnipeg, and shortened to'Winnie'.

In funny teddy bear names , Colebourn presented the London Zoo with Winnie in which it quickly turned into a massive attraction. The London Zoo became Winnie's home till she died in 1934.

Christopher Robin, son of writer A.A. Milne, used to love this little, black bear and'd nicknamed his own stuffed bear'Winnie'. It had been his son's fascination for this bear that prompted Milne to compose a complete set of books about Winnie the Pooh. Incidentally, the name of Pooh originally belonged into a swan.

Today, children's toy stores are dominated by Pooh paraphernalia. You will find Winnie-the-Pooh bears, clothing, bedding, animated cartoons, and even web sites.

2. Paddington Bear

A classic among children's literature, Paddington Bear was charming children of all ages because it was first created with a British author, Michael Bond, in 1958.

Bond chanced upon a teddy bear sitting slightly forlornly onto a shelf at a shop near Paddington Station in London in 1956. Something about this solitary monster caught Bond's creativity and he shortly penned the first book known as'A Bear Called Paddington'. This cute little bear is really an immigrant who hailed from Darkest Peru. He hid himself on the lifeboat of a ship and arrived in England, according to his Aunt Lucy who had reared him so far.
