Before Teddy Roosevelt, there was no such thing as a "Teddy" bear. But all that changed, more than a century ago, when Roosevelt went to Mississippi for a bear hunt. Naturally, his hosts wanted Mr. President to find a bear to collect. However, none was to be found, except for a lone baby bear cub. When his hosts presented the cub to him as a trophy to be taken, Roosevelt, in a true show of sportsmanship, declined. And in saving the life of the baby bear, he found himself in the political comic strips of the day, as a savior of the cub. Thus, "Teddy"s bear, (or the "Teddy bear") was born. This year, Steiff North America is pleased to bring you a set which honors both Teddy Roosevelt and the cub whose life he chose to spare. As part of our ongoing series of "Great American Teddy Bears", this two-piece set includes both a fully jointed Teddy bear, and a Teddy bear cub based on the political cartoons of the day. It's a must-have set that no Steiff collector — or Teddy bear fan  can be without!
