Steiff stands for the highest safety & quality

Description

Margarete Steiff sits in her wheelchair, contemplating the full, rich life that she has led. In 1908 or thereabouts, this was a typical setting for the company founder. One of the last photos ever taken shows her holding the brand-new Teddy bear Baho, a trusty Dalmatian lying at her feet. In the picture, the angle of Margarete’s hand and the cap the bear is wearing combine to make his ears look pointed – almost like those of a cat. Local artist Otto Neubrand captured the scene in 1947 in an oil painting that can still be seen in the Steiff Museum to this day. In 2019, to mark the 110th anniversary of Margarete Steiff’s death, her companion in this photo is to appear as the Margarete Memorial Teddy bear. An homage to the unconventional, courageous innovator who founded our company, he is made of the finest light mohair and is utterly unique – thanks to his pointed, cat-like ears.

The Steiff purity standard

For children only the best will do!

When we say “For children only the best will do”, they are not just empty words but rather a guiding principle that has been followed for generations: Children are our present and our future. All cuddly toys that we produce and sell must therefore do more than justice to the absolute highest of standards in terms of quality, safety, processing and material attributes. We place this benchmark above all of the prescribed international checks and tests. The Steiff purity standard is a permanent fixture of Steiff's corporate philosophy and a foundation of the trust that customers place in us, and one that grows year upon year: This is marked by the Steiff seal.
