You probably have more than a few Teddy Bears laying around your house. But where did they get their name?
It’s actually really interesting. Teddy bears were named after former president of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt. They were such a huge success that another toy company tried to recreate the magic and buzz with the next president, William Howard Taft. This time selling possums named “Billy Possums”. Shocker, not as big a hit. ha ha.
