Details

There weren't always Teddy Bears. While stuffed animals have a long history, it wasn't until 1902 that the Teddy Bear we know today was perfected. Named after Theodore Roosevelt, the bear was toymaker Morris Michtom's homage to a bear Teddy encountered during a hunting expedition. He refused to kill the bear, as it had been trapped and restrained for him, which to Roosevelt felt unsportsmanlike. The bear became known as Teddy's Bear, and the toy captured the pathos of the moment in its soft, cuddly, utterly un-scary form. This sunflower, in turn, is an homage to the toy--and the bear. Its blooms are like plush golden pillows; its stature is diminutive; its appeal to children is universal; and it is kept alive only by the mercy of benevolent humans.
