Teddy bears are a tangible symbol of love, security and friendship. As children, teddy bears kept us warm at night and comforted us while protecting us from the monster under the bed. As we grew, they came to symbolize romance and love. At all stages of life, teddy bears represent happiness and safety and cheer us up when we are feeling lonely or sad. They are our constant friends, and the bond we develop with them is special.
