I was looking on the internet today and I just realized something, which is about the Teddy Bear. Which my question that had just come into mind is this, does this iconic toy from OTL still exist ITTL?
Yes, because at the same time as the American teddy bear was being created, it was also being created in Germany
At the same time in Germany, the Steiff firm, unaware of Michtom's bear, produced a stuffed bear from Richard Steiff's designs. Steiff exhibited the toy at the Leipzig Toy Fair in March 1903, where it was seen by Hermann Berg, a buyer for George Borgfeldt & Company in New York (and the brother of composer Alban Berg). He ordered 3,000 to be sent to the United States. Although Steiff's records show that the bears were produced, they are not recorded as arriving in the U.S., and no example of the type, "55 PB", has ever been seen, leading to the story that the bears were shipwrecked. However, the story is disputed – author Günther Pfeiffer notes that it was only recorded in 1953 and says it is more likely that the 55 PB was not sufficiently durable to survive until the present day. Although Steiff and Michtom were both making teddy bears at around the same time, neither would have known of the other's creation due to poor transatlantic communication
So, the concept of the teddy bear would still exist. It would just be a solely German creation. The question is, what do you call this bear? In OTL, despite hating his nickname Roosevelt gave permission for his name to be used for the bear, but this version of the bear would be German in origin, so maybe it's named Wilhelm after Kaiser Wilhelm?
