    About

    The Teddy Bear was named for American’s 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, whose nickname was Teddy. The story goes that President Roosevelt had been bear hunting. At the end of his trip, he had not shot a single bear. One of staff members caught a bear cub and lashed it to a tree for President Roosevelt to shoot. He refused. President Roosevelt felt it was inappropriate behavior for a sportsman such as himself. This story spread rapidly, people soon started to make their own Teddy Bears. Morris Michtom, an American and Margarete Steiff, a German, were the first manufactures to produce teddy bears commercially. The Steiff Co. was the most successful of the two toy companies. You can see many of Steiff’s traditional bears in the Jeju Teddy Bear Museum.

Animatronics

Impact of new technology always surprises us. However, we try to keep our Teddy Bear’s technology in a nostalgic and analog way; just like in 100 years ago. Teddy Bear Museum’s animatronics are worked by motor and we hand craft each machine. You will experience smooth and delicate movement by watching them and only motor-driven animatronic teddy bears could make this movement.
