Karl Lagerfeld Choupette The Cat 356001
by Steiff

'Only I, Choupette, am Lagerfeld's true muse.
Everything from my whiskers to my meows inspire.'

- Choupette Lagerfeld, First Tweet on Twitter, @ChoupettesDiary

IN STOCK! She has more than 42,000 Facebook fans and 100,000 followers on Instagram. More than 50,000 look forward to her tweets on Twitter. She models for fashion's most exclusive brands and has been featured in the world's top lifestyle and fashion magazines. But she's not just another actress, musician or athlete. In fact, she's not even a human being... she's a cat!

We're talking about Mademoiselle Choupette, of course – the beautiful fluffy feline that stole the heart of fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld. She is the artist's beloved muse and constant companion. Choupette prefers the royal treatment. She refuses to eat on the floor and dines at the table with Karl. She is even attended to by two maids and knows how to use an iPad! She is a very special cat, indeed, so it was an exciting opportunity for Steiff to create this little darling not only for Steiff fans, but lovers of Choupette and Karl Lagerfeld, as well.

Choupette is life-size, measuring 15.5 inches long. Her high-quality plush coat is soft to the touch, just like a real cat. Steiff artisans have carefully airbrushed Choupette, capturing the distinguished elegance that enchanted Karl at first sight. She has sparkling blue eyes and hand-applied whiskers. For an added touch of detail Choupette's ears are lined with ultrasuede and each paw pad is embroidered for an added touch of fine detail. No detail has been overlooked!

Cats love mice and Miss Choupette is no exception! The designers at Steiff decided to give this fashionista kitty her very own toy: a handmade leather mouse complete with the iconic Steiff button-in-ear so you don't mistake it for a real mouse! Like most fashionistas, Choupette likes to have one-of-a-kind couture. So since she is rather particular, Choupette is getting the special treatment from Steiff. She arrives packaged in a special box that also serves as a carrying case, rather than a traditional Steiff box. Karl Lagerfeld Choupette the Cat 356001 is a Steiff limited edition of only 2000 pieces. Suitable for ages 14 and up.

“Only the best
is good enough for our children.”

With this statement, company founder Margarete Steiff established Steiff's commitment to quality.

For over a century, this has remained the Steiff motto.

The Tradition Of Steiff
Creator Of The First Teddy Bear

Steiff Button in EarAs the second oldest German toy company still in existence, Steiff has had a very influential role in how the world plays.

Margarete Steiff designed her first soft-filled fabric toy animal, an elephant made of felt, and began the family business. Margarete's nephew Richard Steiff studied art in Stuttgart and brought a heightened sense of realism to Steiff designs. In 1902, Steiff created the 55PB, a mohair plush bear that is the basis for the modern Teddy Bear we know today.

In 1902, Clifford Berryman, a well-know cartoonist for the Washington Post, made popular a caricature little bear with American president Theodore Roosevelt: thus, the "Teddy" bear was born. Children and adults have made the Teddy bear an iconic toy, universally loved and adored. Over the years, Steiff's focus on delighting children with realistic soft animals brought them fame around the world. Their innovations in airbrushing, choice materials and manufacturing have created toys that are prized everywhere.

Steiff continues to create Teddy bears and other animal friends at their factory in the small town of Giengen, Germany. After 125 years, Steiff continues to lead the world in the finest Teddy bear designs and manufacturing. Their commitment to quality and excellence has brought joy to generations around the world.

The very first box of merchandise that we opened for our shoppe in 1975 was filled with Steiff Teddy bears and it was exhilarating! We established The Toy Shoppe way back then to bring fine dolls and Teddy bears to our collectors. With their long tradition and commitment to excellence, Steiff bears are a natural fit for our shoppe.

In the early 1900s, Richard Steiff created the modern Teddy bear as we know and love him today. Steiff's continued innovation and commitment to quality has touched generations of children around the world.

Over the years, Steiff collectors in the USA and around the world have turned to The Toy Shoppe for their Steiff bears and animals. Our selection is unmatched. We have worked closely with Steiff both in North America and in Germany to design exclusive editions for our collectors that are compelling to Steiff collectors and Teddy bear lovers alike. We travelled to Giengen, Germany to search for inspiration deep within Steiff's archives, their treasure trove of past editions that reaches into their rich history. Maximilian began our Steiff Teddy bear family over a decade ago and since then we've created a wide array of Steiff editions exclusively for our collectors. From Traveller to Little Bear to GrandPapa to Chub-ling to Polar Cub to little Jocko, each one has brought a unique character of Steiff design often introducing innovative techniques or materials in their production. Collectors have adored our Toy Shoppe exclusives by Steiff!

We at The Toy Shoppe are honored to be the premier Steiff shoppe in North America. Our staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and eager to assist you. Just call us toll free 1 800 447-7995 and we will be glad to help you discover that perfect addition to your Teddy bear collection or that perfect Steiff gift for a child, a baby or even yourself!
