Can I exchange/complain about the articles that I have ordered online in a Steiff store?

The return of the goods should be carried out directly via the shipping department. Unfortunately, our branches cannot handle returns.

My delivered article is defective outside the return period. What can I do?

In any case, before returning the article, please contact us on + 49 (0) 71172523 4241.
Send us a few photos of the defective item so that we can process your request more quickly.
We will then discuss the further processing of your complaint with you. For articles which you have bought in one of our stores, we always need the sales receipt for the processing of complaints.

Is it possible to replace the "button in the ear" on old Steiff articles?

The fastening principle has been changed over the years due to increased safety requirements (tensile forces). As the button causes a punched hole during assembly, it is no longer possible to place a replacement button, as the newly assembled button no longer has the required assembly strength.

Is my article a Steiff product, when was it created and how much is it worth?

Please contact the following address with your inquiry:

Ladenburger Spielzeugauktion
Lustgarten 6
68526 Ladenburg

I have purchased a limited edition item where the certificate is missing.

If the certificate is missing for limited articles, we will issue a free replacement certificate, provided the article is not older than 2 years.
