Even though there are no remains of the stuffed toys invented in Egypt, paintings on the monuments suggest they did own animal toys. Modern stuffed animals were first released in the year 1830, but they were handmade with cloth and straw. In 1880, Germany started manufacturing stuffed animals that closely resembled the cute toys that we still purchase today. Stuffed animals were not popular in the US until 1906, when President Theodore Roosevelt inspired the production of the first “Teddy Bear.”
