The idea of making stuffed toys was first thought of in 1880 by Steiff, a German company. It came into mind with the help of the technology used in making upholstery. However, it was only in 1903 that the concept became a reality, and this took place in the USA using Morris Michtom. The first-ever teddy bear’s making took its inspiration from a drawing of Theodore, nicknamed Teddy, together with a bear cub. The first stuffed toy to be patented in 1903 was Peter Rabbit, a character from Beatrix Potter fame.
