Based on a design from 1920, this is a large, classic teddy with jointed limbs and a stitched mouth for the traditional look. But this teddy has been given a modern makeover; made from soft plush it is incredibly cuddly and machine washable, combining form and function into the perfect gift for a christening or new arrival to cherish for a lifetime. 

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.
