So, how do you clean your big old teddy friend without damaging his soft fur? You have several options available to you and we will look at each one in detail.

  • Why Do People Just Love Giant Teddy Bears?

    Anyone who has ever had a teddy bear already knows the answer to this questions, and many people can confirm that they are truly good listeners, honest companions and, not to mention, perfect play buddies. And then we grow up, but not everyone forgets about their childhood toy, and this is why we are still surprised by teddies.
    What do we find so appealing in this simple, yet stunning toy? When we look at bears in real life, they are not so cuddly, quite the opposite, they are truly fierce animals that bring fear into hearts of many, and are alone responsible for many human deaths every year. But despite this, we are still astonished by this play toy, and it even has an interesting back story about how Teddy got its name.
    While hunting, President Theodore Roosevelt and his friends encountered some wild animals, and afterwards, they found a helpless bear. The hunting party suggested that the President kills the bear, but he refused.

  • Who are cosplayers and where do they come from?

    Subcultures can meet a lot of strange reactions from bystanders who are not familiar with them.

Sure, outwardly, it may seem silly and redundant but once you get to know the people and the story behind it, you might start to change your mind!
    While the culture of dressing up in costumes has been around for centuries, the cosplay culture (yes, it is a culture) is a more recent phenomenon. This is why cosplaying can come off as a bit strange to people not familiar with it and may put them in a situation where they ask questions like: “What is the point of the whole thing?”. Well, let’s clear this mystery up, shall we?

    History
    While cosplaying, as social activity, has been popularized in recent years, it really isn't something that is actually new. Actually, the term cosplaying is a portmanteau that was created all the way back in 1984 by Nobuyuki Takahashi of Studio Hard, and this is actually a term of Japanese origin. This is only natural since it is mostly connected to anime culture, and the Japanese really have a fanatical fan base for the manga and anime.
