A simple model of a toy teddy bear. This model requires "shag fur", and is not rigged for animation. Only one resolution of the model is included in the product.
The teddy bear has not always been with us. In fact, the teddy bear did not make its entrance until late in 1902. Then, in one of life`s unexplainable synchronicities, the teddy bear appeared in the same year in two different parts of the world: Germany and the United States.
In America, the teddy bear, according to tradition, got its start with a cartoon. The cartoon showed President Theodore Roosevelt refusing to shoot a baby bear. Roosevelt had traveled to Mississippi to help settle a border dispute between that state and Louisiana, and his hosts, wanting to please this avid hunter, took him bear hunting. The hunting was so poor that someone finally captured a bear and invited Roosevelt to shoot. Roosevelt`s refusal to fire at such a helpless target inspired Berryman to draw his cartoon.
The cartoon appeared in a panel of cartoons drawn by Cliffored Berryman in The Washington Post on November 16, 1902. It caused an immediate sensation and was reprinted widely. This cartoon inspired Morris and Rose Michtom of Brooklyn, New York, to make a bear in honor of the president`s actions. The Michtoms named their bear "Teddy`s Bear" and placed it in the window of their candy and stationery store. Instead of looking fierce and standing on all four paws like previous toy bears, the Michtoms` bear looked sweet, innocent, and upright, like the bear in Berryman`s cartoon. Perhaps that`s why "Teddy`s Bear" made a hit with the buying public. In fact, the demand was so strong that the Michtoms, with the help of a wholesale firm called Butler Brothers, founded the first teddy bear manufacturer in the United States, the Ideal Novelty and Toy Company.
Meanwhile, across the ocean in Germany, Richard Steiff was working for his aunt, Margarete Steiff, in her stuffed toy business. Richard, a former art student, often visited the Stuttgart Zoo to sketch animals, particularly the bear cubs. In 1902, the same year the Michtoms made "Teddy`s Bear," the Steiff firm made a prototype of a toy bear based on Richard`s designs.
Though both the Michtoms and Steiff were working on bears at the same time, certainly neither knew, at a time of poor transatlantic communication, about the other`s creation. Besides, the Michtoms` bear resembled the wide-eyed cub in the Berryman cartoon, while the Steiff bear, with its humped back and long snout, looked more like a real bear cub.
A few months later, in March 1903, at the Leipzig Toy Fair, Steiff introduced its first bearóBaer 55PB. The European buyers showed little interest, but an American toy buyer, who was aware of the growing interest in "Teddy`s bears" in the States, ordered 3000. In America, people were beginning to get teddy bear fever, and Steiff was in the right place at the right time.
By 1906, the teddy bear craze was in full swing in the United States. The excitement probably compared to the frenzy for Cabbage Patch dolls in the 1980s and Beanie Babies in the 1990s. Society ladies carried their teddies everywhere, and children had their pictures taken with their teddy bears. The Teddy Bear was here to stay.
This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 7 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax or Gmax to open the model. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is mapped and textured.
