|Did you know that the koala is the inspiration, if not the model, for the teddy bear. It all started when President Theodore Roosevelt visited Australia and met a koala. They had a blinking contest, having met for the first time, and the bear won. |
Someone in the crowd remarked the animal looked like the president (or vice-versa?), probably because of the nose, and the name stuck.
| Some later toy-makers sewed a stuff toy resembling a koala and called it a ‘teddy bear’ in remembrance of the event. |
