This fabulous picnic will be held at the Jupiter Community Center from 10:00am to 11:30am and it is billed to be an event not to miss. There will be lots of great family fun including singing, story time with Brenda Nickolaus, and even a wonderful teddy bear parade.
Almost everyone knows that the iconic name for this children’s toy comes from the former United States President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, but do you know the entire story. The name actually originated on a bear hunt where the president refused to shoot a bear that was tied to a tree. He believed it to be an unsportsmanlike action and ordered his people to put the bear out of its misery. After that a political cartoon decided to make light of the situation and chose to make the bear a great deal smaller and cuter with the title of “Teddy”. A toy builder then saw this cartoon and became motivated to create a little stuffed bear. He then got permission to use the name and put this plush toy in his window with the name “Teddy’s Bear” which later shortened to just “Teddy Bear”. The craze for stuffed bears started a long time ago and has stayed strong with it becoming the favorite toy for children all over the world. The retail sales for stuffed plush toys are now in excess of $1.6 billion dollars a year.
This event is designed for kids five years of age and under and there is limited space so please pre-registration your little Teddy Bear fans as soon as you can. For further info on the Teddy Bear Picnic please call Summer Magun at (561) 741-2400.
