Max has been described as a ‘Teddy for Tomorrow’ as he is made from a soft PET fabric made from recycled bottles, with a snout and paws in certified organic cotton, and filled with PET. This makes him sound rather clinical, but he is 5 jointed for easy movement, with a wonderfully soft, slightly curly coat for snuggles and twinkly eyes that charm. 

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.
