Custom Printed Teddy Bears
One of the key reasons that businesses invest in custom Printed Teddy bears as promotional gifts is cuddly branded teddy Bears with a full colour t-shirt create visibility of their company contact details when their service is needed. Furthermore, the strength of existing relationships with clients is increased by providing a soft toy to be appreciated by the younger members of the family. This then allows for the business name to remain in the household.
Promotional teddy bears offer a great deal of utility, especially for parents who might need something to entertain their children. Kids can carry teddy bears around with them and get years of use out of them as soft toys.
Recent research found a third of British adults still sleep with a soft toy at night- so whilst a personalised teddy might seem like the product for a younger audience they can actually appeal to older customers as well.
They’re also great for corporate presentation. Teddies with full colour personalised t shirts alongside balloons are the perfect complement to parties, trade shows, events, and charity fundraisers and evocative of fun, excitement and high-spirits, helping to influence the mood at any gathering and get your target audience more engaged in what you’re doing.
Remember when you give your customers promotional products there’s a good chance that they will take them around with them if they have children. As they carry the teddy bear around, other people will see your logo and marketing message, helping to create familiarity and increase the likelihood that people will decide to buy from you.
Remember, people tend to trust what they know and shun what they don’t. So, if you can associate your brand with the friendly image of a teddy bear, you stand a much better chance of reaching people you wouldn’t ordinarily come into contact with
How did the first Promotional Teddy Bear get Its name?
The first teddy bear got its name when in 1902, Theodore Roosevelt, who at the time was the President of the United States, refused to shoot a bear when invited on a hunting trip. The story goes that Roosevelt was invited by the Mississippi Governor named Andrew H. Longino. Three days into their hunting trip, Roosevelt still had not spotted a bear. Subsequently, some of the hunt guides had found a mature black bear that had been injured by the dogs.
The bear was then tied to a tree and Theodore Roosevelt was called to the scene. The guides had told The President that it should be he who shoots the
bear. After taking one look at the animal, the President decided that it would be unjust to kill the bear and refused to do so. The news of this story quickly spread and was soon in newspapers across the states. A political cartoonist named Clifford Berryman got wind of the tale and drew a picture revealing Theodore Roosevelt with his back turned to the guide who had tied up the bear for him.
In the original cartoon created by Clifford Berryman, the guide and bear are both of similar size. However, as more and more cartoons were recreated of the scenario the bears became smaller and looked afraid, bringing about the character of the first teddy bear. The origin of the Teddy Bear connection was made in Brooklyn, New York when a sweets shop owner who went by the name of Morris Mitchom had noticed the original drawing of Roosevelt and the bear by Clifford Berryman and had a lightbulb moment. Mitchoms bright spark led to two stuffed Custom Toy Teddy Bears being placed in his shop window.
He had asked for permission from the President to name these toys “Teddy Bears”. The first ever Personalised Teddy Bear and stuffed animals became so popular that Mitchom started to manufacture them on a very large commercial scale and the world still continues to this day, the trend of Teddy bears has still not died out, only increased in popularity.
