February 10th is universally celebrated as Teddy Bear Day, a sort-of-a prelude to Valentine's Day.
This week of love sees couples buying and gifting Teddy bears to their partners.
The stuffed toy bear has long evolved from being a child's toy to gifts to give to women expressing one's love.
In recent times, some Teddy bears have even become collector's items.
The name 'Teddy Bear' though has its roots to something very unromantic.
