The 4th Week of 2017 in Photos. “Everybody Has to Have a Teddy Bear”.

                       
 “Everyone has nostalgic memories about their bears.”                                                        Daniel Agnew

A soft toy in the form of a bear was first created in 1902 and was named after the then president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt (read more here).



A teddy bear is not an ordinary toy; he’s a true friend for every boy or girl.

“There's just something about a Teddy Bear that's impossible to explain. When you hold one in your arms, you get a feeling of love, comfort and security. It's almost supernatural.”                                                       James Ownby 

Teddy bears of all colors and materials are absolutely adorable.
“Anyone who has looked a teddy bear in the face will recognize the friendly twinkle in his knowing look.”                                    Harold Nadolny 

Teddy bears are appealing even if they are old.
“A bear teaches us that if the heart is true, it doesn't matter much if an ear drops off.”                                 Helen Exley 

There are 3 teddy bears days:
 Teddy Bear Day, International (1903), February 15
Teddy Bear Day, September 9
Teddy Bear Picnic Day (1932), July 10



“You really don't have to be young to find a friend in a teddy bear.”Rachel Newman
