Bruin Manufacturing Company Teddy Bears

Blissful - Bruin Manufacturing Co. "Blissful" - Bruin Manufacturing Co.

The United States imported thousands of bear dolls and Teddy Bears from Germany in addition to establishing numerous manufacturing firms to keep up with the demand for the Roosevelt inspired Teddy Bear. The Bruin Manufacturing Co. was one of these early firms located at 497 Broome Street New York City.

The Strobel & Wilken Company of 591 Broadway and Frank W. Owens 714 Broadway were the selling agents for the Bruin Manufacturing Co. Their rivials included Ideal, Aetna, Harman Manufacturing and the American Doll and Toy Mfg. Co.

The Bruin Manufacturing Co. produced a line of stuffed toy animals including Teddy Bears with imported voices. They also produced bear outfits and accessories. The Bruin Manufacturing Co. was in business for only a few years. In 1907 they labor trouble when the "stuffers" walked out and demanded a share of the profits. Their jobs were easy to fill but labor troubles continued and may have been the reason for the short time in business.
