The first teddy bear got its name when in 1902, Theodore Roosevelt, who at the time was the President of the United States, refused to shoot a bear when invited on a hunting trip. The story goes that Roosevelt was invited by the Mississippi Governor named Andrew H. Longino. Three days into their hunting trip, Roosevelt still had not spotted a bear. Subsequently, some of the hunt guides had found a mature black bear that had been injured by the dogs.
The bear was then tied to a tree and Theodore Roosevelt was called to the scene. The guides had told The President that it should be he who shoots the bear. After taking one look at the animal, the President decided that it would be unjust to kill the bear and refused to do so. The news of this story quickly spread and was soon in newspapers across the states.
A political cartoonist named Clifford Berryman got wind of the tale and drew a picture revealing Theodore Roosevelt with his back turned to the guide who had tied up the bear for him. In the original cartoon created by Clifford Berryman, the guide and bear are both of similar size. However, as more and more cartoons were recreated of the scenario the bears became smaller and looked afraid, bringing about the character of the first teddy bear.
The origin of the Teddy Bear connection was made in Brooklyn, New York when a sweets shop owner who went by the name of Morris Mitchom had noticed the original drawing of Roosevelt and the bear by Clifford Berryman and had a lightbulb moment. Mitchoms bright spark led to two stuffed Custom Toy Teddy Bears being placed in his shop window.
He had asked for permission from the President to name these toys “Teddy Bears”. The first ever Personalised Teddy Bear and stuffed animals became so popular that Mitchom started to manufacture them on a very large commercial scale and the world still continues to this day, the trend of Teddy bears has still not died out, only increased in popularity.

For Businesses working with a Mortgage or Family insurance product Sales promotions can be created around the Business development objective by inviting potential clients to discuss a service and giving a bear to the children after the meeting, to be taken home.
The logic behind charities using Custom Teddy Bears is that it allows them to raise additional funds for the charities and their cause. This entices people to donate as they not only get the ‘feel good factor’ for donating but they are receiving a gift for doing so. Additionally, this then raises the profile and causes of the charity.
Retail Resellers can often do well for themselves by selling customized merchandise to very engaged audiences. For example, anything music related usually draws engaged audiences, whether it be a music festival or a concert. Especially if the genre of music is child-friendly then Printed Teddy Bears can go a long way.
Sports clubs look to expand their popularity by using mascots. They can then sell merchandise in their stores to raise funds for the club and also try to bolster their fan base. Nine times out of 10 these mascots are animals, therefore making Personalised Teddy Bears and stuffed animals their best way to go. Sports clubs are normally very family friendly and when parents take their children to matches it is inevitable that the child is going to want a toy of some sort, and to the child, there is nothing better than seeing their favourite mascot in the form of a Personalised or Custom Team Teddy Bear.
A huge part of leisure venues such as theme parks, aquariums, museums, art galleries and even holiday parks are the gift shops. For the majority of these places, the only way to exit once you’ve finished your day is via the gift shop. This allows for these leisure venues to stock up on Promotional Bears and stuffed animals amongst other promotional products to sell to their customers. Printed Teddy Bears are always a great memento, especially for children to remember their fun experience. An additional benefit that helps the retailer is having promotional teddy bears in the gift shops of their venues is that it also allows for their venue to be advertised with the new owner of the personalised Teddy bear when taken home.
Hotels and holiday parks often sell a selection of promotional products behind the desk at reception or even have their own gift shop in the lobby area. Seeing as these are very family orientated venues it is quite often the case that the parents buy their children a gift at the end of their stay, and a Promotional Teddy bear in a Printed T-shirt is always a popular choice.
A convenient way for schools to raise funds is to sell Personalised Teddy Bears and stuffed animals to their students and younger children at a school fete or fair. This could include games that involve winning the Customised Teddys Bears as a raffle prize. Moreover, some schools and nurseries may want to use the Promotional Teddy Bears as incentives for students to show good behaviour or reward those that perform well in class and exams by giving them as tokens if these standards are met.
The way in which Personalised Teddy Bears could aid youth clubs is that of which is similar to schools as they could help to entice kids to work harder and achieve their goals by using them as rewards and prizes. Again like schools, they could also be used to raise funds for the club if they were sold at events or on match days. If the youth club is involved in sport and has an animal-themed mascot, this would most certainly appeal to the children involved.
