The memorable lyrics accompany perhaps the most famous Teddy bear tune in the world. A musical marvel that captured the world 100 years ago when written in 1907.
What better way to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of this great composition than to embrace it with the world's most famous Teddy bear ... the fifth in a Series of exquisite Musical bears.
The Nation's favourite Teddy bear tune is preserved within this beautiful Classic Mohair Teddy bear whose heartbeat plays "Teddy Bear's Picnic". Written by American composer and theatrical producer John Walter Bratton who is best remembered for this 1907 composition.
"Teddy Bear's Picnic" became an instant and lasting hit as an instrumental only. The song regained prominence in 1932 when the Irish-British lyricist Jimmy kennedy added words. The instrumental now with lyrics was broadcast in the kiddies' section of BBc Radio Show and the publisher's office was deluged with rquests for sheet music ...the rest, they say, is history!
