Candy Bomber Pilot 19102-3
by Hermann-Spielwaren GmbH

2018/2019 marks the 70th anniversary of Operation Berlin Airlift. It began on June 26, 1948 and is still today a symbol of people's desire for freedom. During the time of the Berlin Airlift, more than 2.2 million people in West Berlin were supplied by the Western Allies by air with all the necessary food, medicines, and fuels such as coal and gasoline. This after Soviet occupation forces had blocked the land and water routes to West -Berlin. The airplanes were lovingly named Rosinenbomber - Candy Bombers - by the Berlin population. The name originated after an American pilot began tying small chocolate bars to home-made handkerchief parachutes, and then dropped them off before landing for the waving children. This action soon drew so much attention that many of his colleagues followed him. As a result, civilian Americans collected candy to support this action. The Soviets lifted the Berlin blockade after 11 months on 12 May 1949. Then, on September 30, 1949, the Berlin Airlift operation officially ended.

This dapper Teddy is five-way jointed and measures 14.5 inches tall. He is handmade from mohair with felt paw pads and traditionally stuffed with excelsior filling. He has his pilot's cap and scarf as well as his hankerchief parachuting candy bar. His expression comes together with friendly eyes, a hand-stitched nose and sculpted muzzle. Give this bear a shake and his growler will sound out, telling you stories of days gone by. Candy Bomber Pilot 19102-3 is a 2018 edition by Hermann-Spielwaren GmbH limited to only 250 pieces.

Traditional German Teddy Bears Crafted From The Hands Of Three Generations Of Teddy Bear Makers

Hermann Spielwaren - German Teddy Bear companyHermann bears are true classics, both in their design and in the way they touch your heart! The history of Johann Hermann's Teddy Bear company began over 100 years ago in 1913 on the outskirts of Sonneberg, Germany. At that time, Sonneberg was the world's center of toy manufacturing. After Johann's death in 1919, his children divided Hermann Coburg into two identities: Hermann-Spielwaren and Hermann Teddy. Known for their green tag, Hermann-Spielwaren is still owned and run by members of the family, and employ people who still work in the traditional way using the finest mohair and other materials.

Hermann - A Tradition Of Fine Quality Teddy Bears
The old Max Hermann Teddy Bears - the today's HERMANN Coburg Bears - belong to those Teddy Bears, with which thousands of little boys and girls have grown up. Today HERMANN Coburg is one of the oldest, still existing Teddy Bear factories of the world.

In Neufang, a small mountain village in Thuringia, close to Sonneberg at that time Toy Capital of the world Arthur, Adelheid and Max Hermann start under the name of their father, Johann Hermann - Johann Hermann Spielwarenfabrik, Spezialitat Bessere Genre TeddyBaren - the production of their first HERMANN Teddy Bear


In order to mark and identify his Teddy Bears Max Hermann develops the famous logo The Green Triangle and the The Bear with the Running Dog. From that day forward all Max Hermann Teddy Bearsare identified with this logo.


Since 1993, all HERMANN Coburg Teddy Bears are marked with a special neck mark, which is sealed tight on the bear's neck. In this way, HERMANN Bears are easily identified. Important characteristic of the neck mark is the Triangle shape with the imprint of the Bear with the Running Dog. These features have been used since the beginning of the 1930s. This neck mark guarantees the identification of Teddy Bears manufactured by HERMANN Coburg for today and the future.


Currently, in Coburg, the old Max Hermann Teddy Bears are produced in the third generation under the management of the founder's grandchildren, Dr. Ursula and Martin Hermann. The collection contains more than 400 different Teddy Bears - all made in Germany and most in limited editions. Several have won internationally recognized awards. Replicas of old Max Hermann Teddy Bears, which are produced in the time honored tradition, belong to the HERMANN Coburg collection along with Teddy Bears from the new generation. Through the experience, knowledge and talent of craftsmen and women from the toy region of Coburg Neustadt Sonneberg, the tradition of quality made Teddy Bears will be preserved in the house of HERMANN Coburg today and for all times.
