In 1902 Teddy Roosevelt, the much-loved US president of the time, ordered the mercy killing of a young wounded bear. Ther story got into the papers and soon spread like wild fire, becoming particularly popular with children. As a result Teddy Bears were born. The toys were an instant hit and teddies have been cherished by kids all over the planet ever since.
So it’s no surprise that almost everyone has a teddy bear story. What’s yours? I left my teddy at the top of York Minster’s bell tower when I was about four, not realising until we were almost home in Middlesbrough. I screamed the place down ’til dad drove back, woke up the Minster man, fetched her down and brought her home.
