In 1912, Theodore Roosevelt ran for president under the Progressive Party. The mascot for the Progressive Party was the bull moose, because when asked by a reporter how he felt, Theodore Roosevelt responded that he "felt fit as a bull moose." This bull moose pull toy is one of many political novelties produced during the election.
