Steiff Classic Teddy Bear

The first stuffed toy bear with movable limbs was designed by the German toy company Steiff in 1902, reaching American shores by 1906. These bears quickly became a universally recognized icon of childhood.

Steiff is now one of world’s most famous collectibles companies, and its toys are highly prized and passed down through generations as family heirlooms.

Our bear, a classic 1905 design, was the first to feature the now-famous “Knopf im Ohr” ear-button that is the instantly recognizable trademark of the company.

Covered in a soft, honey-brown mohair/cotton blend, this Steiff collectable is expertly handmade in Germany, as was the original bear.

The Berlin Bear, a proud symbol of Germany’s capital city since 1280, is not the only German bear with a claim to international fame. What we know today as the Teddy Bear is also a German native.

Height 12 inches.
