What comes to mind when see or read the words 'Teddy Bear'?
Does it make you think about a special memory, a person, a toy, a real bear?
Yes it brings back fond memories to me. Back in the day when my husband was alive. I used to call him mikey bear, then it kinda grew from there, the grandkids. Boo bear, shelly bear, and of course me "nanny bear". And we had all kinds of family bear knick knacks, but he died 11 years ago. I still use the bear names for the kids. I used to call it our little bear family. They will always be my bear grandbabies lol.

I also wrote a book of children's poems Called Bearfiz, but time has misplaced them...
The only words that come to mind when I think of teddy bear is the origin of the name. Theodore Roosevelt. After Mr. President Roosevelt and some of his staff and friends went hunting for bear and spent many days with no luck, (The story goes a few different ways) but they came across a wounded bear, Mr. President ordered that the poor wounded bear be put down. A cartoonist named Clifford Berryman heard of their story and drew a funny gag of it in the paper. From that point on the little stuffed bear was known as the teddy bear.
the first thought that comes to mind is Teddy Roosevelt...a tale is told about how the Teddy Bear came to have its name. it seems Theodore was out hunting and a bear was cornered so he could shoot it. but he refused. he did not think that was fair. news of this incident spead and afterwards, he was called Teddy Roosevelt.
the second is of a young man i went to college with in Pikeville Kentucky in the late sixties and early seventies.
He was tall and fluffy and had a head of dark brown hair...we all called him Teddy Bear...our gentle giant.
A song by Elvis Presley comes to my mind when I hear the words Teddy Bear. It is his song, Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear.
Childhood fun, warm fuzzies! A friend to hug when during the pain of the healing of a scraped knee. . .
It makes me think of a friend and former football player who gives me big hugs like hugging a Teddy bear. I love hugs because they make you feel good all over. I don't remember too much about liking Teddy bears from childhood. I love giving Teddy bears to new babies.
It's a prejudice that hearing or reading a certain word brings one specific idea to mind. It's hypocrisy that assumes that what has come will match the outcome next time we hear the exact same word.
