A traditional jointed teddy bear, with classic Steiff bear features including felt paws, beady glass eyes, jointed limbs, movable head, and beautifully stitched mouth. Crafted in brass blonde mohair, he is small enough to sit comfortably on a shelf but finished with a ribbon bow, he is smart enough to accompany you on any adventure.  

Margarete Steiff founded the company in 1880 producing stuffed animals in Germany. She was joined by her nephew Richard Steiff, who, in 1902, designed a toy bear made of mohair, and called him Teddy in reference to American President Theodore Roosevelt, who had refused to shoot a tethered bear during a hunting trip. Steiff teddies and soft toys today bear (sorry!) the same high standards of quality, with each toy handmade and finished with a yellow ear tag for authenticity. They are designed as heirloom toys and are much favoured by collectors as their value often increases with age.
