Graduation Teddy Bears

Graduation Teddy Bears

28.05.2019

There are over 100 universities in the UK and over 300,000 students graduate from these every year! That’s a lot of clever people!

It is coming to that time of year where all those clever people who have studied so hard for 3 or even 4 years have taken their final exams and graduated from university.   You want to acknowledge their achievements but are wondering how to do it … well what could be better than a graduation teddy bear to  help celebrate the occasion!

Most of our graduation teddy bears can be personalised with the graduates name and qualification embroidered on the gown or jumper that the teddy bear is wearing. We also have lots of traditional bears that you can have any message you want on the jumper if you want something a bit less fancy.

If you have ever wondered why graduates throw their mortar boards up in the air after the ceremony well it stems back to the US navy. In 1912 the Navy gave their newly commisioned graduates their officers hats dueing the ceremony so they no longer required the midship hats they had been wearing for the past 4 years. To show how pleased they were they threw their old hats up in to the air. The practice stuck and soon spread to unniversities accross the country.
