Paddington Bear (Life Size) EAN 690365
by Steiff

'I'm a very rare sort of bear,' said Paddington 'There aren't many of us left where I come from.'
'And where is that?' asked Mrs Brown.
'Darkest Peru.'

Michael Bond based Paddington Bear on a lonely Teddy bear he noticed on a shelf in a London store on Christmas Eve 1956, which he bought as a present for his wife. The bear inspired Bond to write a story; A BEAR CALLED PADDINGTON - first published on October 13, 1958. Little could he have known then how many people from around the world would come to know, love and adore his charming bear from darkest Peru.

Today, the adventures of Paddington Bear continue to captivate both young and old. His huge popularity has recently propelled him on to the big screen making Paddington a famous film star now! Not only that. He has BAFTA nominations! Following the hugely popular paw prints of his predecessors, this winning Paddington is now thrilled not only to be life size but larger than life in every way.

Over the years, Steiff has created several versions of Paddington, but never one at this scale. We are excited to about Steiff's new 42 inch Paddington Bear! He encompasses all the traditional Steiff characteristics: the finest materials, flawless design and bursting at the seams with personality. Paddington is three-way jointed and made of the finest chestnut mohair. His curious expression comes together with friendly pupil eyes, a hand-stitched nose and blond mohair muzzle. Steiff artisans have enhanced his wonderful expression with subtle airbrushing. Paddington wears his iconic blue rain coat with toggles, red hat and tag that hangs from his neck which reads 'Please look after this bear. Thank you.' He comes complete with a suitcase, jar of faux marmalade and faux sandwich. He 'bears' the iconic gold-plated button-in-ear. Paddington Bear (Life Size) EAN 690365 is a Steiff licensed edition limited to only 350 pieces. Although this is a collectors item, Paddington is suitable for ages 14 years and up. © Copyright P&Co.

“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.
