“Teddies go everywhere and do everything. There is not a corner of the globe that they have not penetrated, if not with children then with adults. Their appeal is universal and to all ages. They have gone into battle on guns, tanks, and in haversacks; saved lives by incepting bullets…are used extensively in advertising campaigns; collected by film stars, ballerinas and actresses; used as mascots and talismans; had endless books, songs, and verses written about them; are taken to hospitals; are indeed a part of our everyday life…”
