The Roosevelt Bears - Their Travels And Adventures

The "Teddy" part is a name they found
On hat and tree and leggings round,
On belt and boot, and plates of tin,
And scraps of paper and biscuits thin,
And other things that hunters drop
When they chase a bear to a mountain top.

We all know about Teddy B and Teddy G - The Roosevelt Bears who became immensely popular in 1905 when Seymour Campbell Eaton (using the pen-name Paul Piper in the newspaper) began writing (in verse) about two bears from Colorado, The Roosevelt Bears. They got their names, Teddy--B and Teddy--G for their colour fur. In January 1906, the New York Times began publishing their first adventure, the voyage from Colorado to New York, in the sunday supplement, with nice illustrations by V. Floyd Campbell. The lovely Roosevelt Bear books were too follow by Seymour Eaton.

I was fortunate enough to recently acquire these lovely little bears, Teddy B and Teddy G, complete with their own travel trunk made by Schmidt. Here they are:

Aren't they just so cute!
