The Great Valencian Teddy Bear Escape

That favourite among children’s toys, the teddy bear, was named after President Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, who apparently spared the life of a baby bear while out hunting one day, after having exterminated its mother.

Why children should be encouraged to devote their affection to a savage animal, which would rather claw than cuddle, is a great mystery; but an even greater mystery is why the teddy bears of Carrer del Cobertís de Sant Tomàs, in the centre of the Tapineria pop up market, are all trying to escape at the same time…….or at least this is what we deduce from these photos; another Valencia International exclusive!
