Zotty refers to a style of teddy
bear with an open mouth and possibly turned down paws as if the bear is
begging. The first Zotty was made by Steiff in 1951.
The word Zotty
is derived from a German term for shaggy, believe it or not.
Chasey has mastered the art of repair on Zotty bears with damaged
muzzles. You know the scenario...Fido decides to be playful and bites
the nose off poor teddy!
This poor fellow is a Gerbruder Hermann Teddy bear of the Zotty
persuasion. - S. C. Beam
