Richard Steiff designed the very first jointed Teddy bear in 1902, a child’s toy bear gifted with movement, a bear that would take the world by storm. Henceforth Richard devoted his entire life to creativity and innovative design and found constant inspiration within the animal kingdom, which he studied in great depth. Over 115 years on Margarete Steiff GmbH continues to strive for excellence in style and imagination within the design of their Teddy bears of today. Steiff proudly presents the first in a series of bear cubs that pay tribute to the providers of their inspiration, yet unfold a brand new fresh design. The wondrous dweller of the lush high altitude forests clothing the slopes of the Andes Mountains, the only living bear species native to South America, the Spectacled Bear is the closest living kin of the short-faced bears of the Middle Pleistocene to Late Pleistocene age. They are one of the most endangered bear species in the world; the most endangered being the Giant Panda Bear which is their closest living relative today. This little darling totally embodies the striking markings of his incentive yet embraces individuality, a scrumptious cub he is indeed.
Those wanting to create something special and unique of lasting value will need nothing less than the perfect "ingredients". This not only applies to many other areas but especially to our Steiff manufacture, where we only use "ingredients" of the highest quality: for every Steiff animal, from head to paw. Starting with the thread, the filling material, buttons, eyes and accessories and right up to what is so characteristic for every Steiff animal: it's "coat" or "fur", which gives character and form to its appearance. So since 2009 we have been particularly happy to be able to call ourselves the world's only manufacturer of stuffed toys with its own fabric factory.
Although the number of alpaca animals in the Steiff range has increased in recent years, the company discovered the material many years ago. Its resurgence in popularity is due to its wonderful feel and tremendous versatility. Alpaca can be used to create both soft Teddy bears and ultra-realistic animals.
All animals and Teddy bears at Steiff are very pleased to receive the extraordinary distinction of the white ear tag with red writing because these are produced in a limited edition. This means that only a limited number is available and some are available only in certain countries.
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.
