This contest is fueled by the following news: Teddy bear - One of the most famous type of toys in XX century and in
the beginning of XXI century: toy bear is made of soft stuffed
material. In western Europe and America, it is popular mainly in the
name of "Teddy bear" or in German "Teddybär", traditionally associated
with the name of US President Theodore Roosevelt. In Russia, the name
"Plush Bear" consolidated although not all the toy bears of this type
are made of plush these days.
In the beginning of 20th Century, bears of various European and
American firms (production before Second World War) were considered
popular collector items.
Recently (End of 20th - beginning of 21st Centuries), teddy bears of
the "MeToYou" company gained significant popularity. They are
conventionalized under toys "Found on garret". Distinguishing features
of these toys are artificial patches and also stitched gaps.
