    What is the origin of the teddy bear

    I'm not positive, but I think the name 'teddy' bear came from Theodore Roosevelt. According to the story, he was on a hunting trip with friends and they came across a baby bear. When the president refused to shoot the baby bear, his compassion for the animal stuck and the name was born. Of course, that could just be an urban legend, and stuffed bears existed long before then. But that's what I always heard.
