Social Musings 101

People Who Have Contributed to Society

Today we learn about 2 individuals who contributed to society (apparently from records at the same time) in regards to the wonderful and childlike Teddy Bear. So  Morris Michtom after seeing a cartoon where  former President Theodore Roosevelt had some bad dealings with a bear got the idea to create a toy bear. He named the toy bear a Teddy Bear. It just so happens that he owned a novelty shop and then put  in the window and they started to sell. As a result of the successful sales of the teddy bear he founded the company Ideal Novelty and Toy Company. Before sailing the toy bears he got permission from Teddy to produce the toy bears using his name.

The second person who according to records came up with the idea at the exact same time as Michtom was Richard Steiff. So Richard came up with the same idea and with a toy bear and took it to a toy fair and caught the guy of a manufacturer who ordered a whole lot of teddy bears. Then as any successful item does it started showing up every where with women and people holding the bears. But today I say thank you to Michtom and Steiff because of all the affection and displays of LOVE that are non- material but the bear allows to give the material expression of LOVE. That’s all enjoy your day, evening, and night. Click the link to read more about the history of teddy bears.
