A Family Bought This Teddy Bear At A Thrift Shop. What They Found Inside Is Truly Shocking
Shortly after President Theodore Roosevelt took office in 1901, a political cartoon in the Washington Post depicted the president standing in front of a bear. Two toy makers, Morris Michtom in the US and Richard Steiff in Germany, were inspired by the image. They created different versions of the iconic toy and named it after the nickname of President Roosevelt, Teddy. Due to poor transatlantic communication, neither toy maker knew about the other toy. They were instantly huge hits on both continents. As of 2006, Teddy Bears had become a $1.3 billion business. Many versions of the toy have been manufactured since they were first created, but none quite as spooky as the one in this next video - check it out.
