Jimmy is the rather saggy teddy bear we all know and love. Made from a soft plush, he has a bean bag sewn into his bottom and arms, so that he sits neatly on a shelf when not being hugged. If he gets rather grubby with too many cuddles, he can be popped into the washing machine, and with the Steiff label, you know he will last for years to come.  

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.
