Teddy Day date

Teddy day is the fourth day of valentine’s week. Teddy day date falls on February 10, every year. Learn more about it in detail as mentioned below.

Life is not a bed of roses; the reality check starts in our 20’s and hits us by the ’30s. In the process of growing up, we often lose the qualities that make us who we are. And the most valuable characteristic we lose is ‘innocence’. Everything is simple till we think with the clarity of a child’s mind, but going gets tough when we push away that virtue and start being inconsiderate instead of practical.

When the insensitivity becomes part of a relationship, the spark starts fading away. Honesty moves out of the window and the invisible wall between the lovers keeps mounting up. But fortunately, every year you have one definite chance to resolve all the issues. Valentine’s week brings the opportunity to start afresh and rekindle the lost romance in your relationship. And to bring the childlike candid back, we have the Teddy day.

Teddy Day is the third day of Valentine’s week falling on February 10. It is the day of bringing back that lost smile on your loved one’s face. The day of calling back to your childhood. And the day to get goofy and fall for him/her again.

Any person is a reflection of their childhood. Their personality, likes, fears, and merits are formed on the base of their upbringing. To form a new relationship or better understand an existing one, a throwback to the past is a rudimentary effort. On Teddy day you do not simply have to gift a teddy bear to the loved one, but make an attempt to get to know them on at their heart.

But the question is, why is Teddy bear so important? What is the actual thought behind using this plush toy as a declaration of your love? The answer lies in the attributes of this magnificent animal and the story of this soft toy’s origin.

According to Ellie Lamb (a bear viewing guide), bears are beautiful, strong, and empathetic creatures. They have a strong sense of commune and compassion for their kind. This sense of protection from bears and their loving appearance makes them extra cute when embodied in the form of a soft toy.

Now, the story of the origin of Teddy bears is connected with the 26th President of the U.S. Theodore Roosevelt. He was a seasoned hunter and often took hunting trips with his buddies. On such an occasion on November 14, 1902, Theodore’s assistants along with former Confederate cavalryman Holt Collier trapped a black bear and tied it to a tree. As Roosevelt had not caught a single bear during the trip, they asked him to take the bear. The president refused to kill the bear, stating that it was unfair and not in the spirit of hunting.

This news spread like wildfire in the U.S. On November 16, 1902, a satirical cartoonist Clifford Berryman did a piece on the encounter. This struck an idea in a Brooklyn shop owner Morris Michtom’s mind, and he and the missus created a stuffed toy bear and dedicated it to the president naming it ‘Teddy Bear’. Roosevelt sporting approved, and the toy was mass-produced. It received phenomenal response owing to which Michtom launched the Ideal Toy Company. Since then, ‘Teddy Bears’ have always ruled the world of toys.

This plush toy is not only delightful but comes in several different varieties. The elementary division of types can be done based on colors, styles, and sizes.

Teddy Bear Sizes

They say size does not matter. But believe me, it does! The size of the teddy bear you choose should depend on the level of commitment you have.

A relationship where you are exclusive and want to convey you are always there for your beloved, a pillow sized teddy will suffice. They can carry it to bed and snuggle in thinking about you.
