Fully-licensed by Disney! It's been exciting to partner with Steiff again and bring to life one of Wonderland's most memorable characters, Cheshire Cat, exclusively for The Toy Shoppe.

Oh, and that mischievous 'Cheshire grin!' We are delighted to partner with Steiff in bringing to life one of Wonderland's most memorable characters, Cheshire Cat, exclusively for The Toy Shoppe.

'Of all the characters from Lewis Carroll's ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, the mischievous Cheshire Cat was the one who captured my curiosity. His exaggerated grin, fun-tastic expressions and mannerisms always made me laugh!'   - Barrie Shapiro

Since its publication in 1865, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, the tale of a curious girl who falls down a rabbit hole into a wacky world continues to fascinate and enchant people of all ages. Lewis Carroll's writing and Sir John Tenniel's illustrations have inspired countless artists. From books and cartoons, to dolls and Teddy bears, Wonderland continues to stir the creative genius and imagination in us all.

Steiff designers have perfectly portrayed the whimsy of that iconic, toothy smile; a mischievous smile that has become one of the most widely recognized images associated with ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Our Cheshire Cat is made of the finest Schulte mohair with an embroidered expression that will make you grin from ear-to-ear, too! Extensive airbrushing from his little black finger nails to his wacky stripes, Steiff artisans have aced this licensed edition. He is five-way jointed and measures 8 inches tall, 13.5 inches long and 9 inches wide. Not a single detail has been overlooked.

Down The Rabbit Hole Into A Peculiar Fantasy World

What started out as just a story for three little girls became a curiouser and curiouser tale that eventually evolved into the beloved books, delighting generations of readers.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, also known as Lewis Carroll, was an English writer, mathematician, photographer and even a deacon. He is best known for his books of Alice and her adventures in Wonderland. Since 1865, the tale of a curious girl who falls down a rabbit hole into a wacky world continues to capture our hearts. Lewis Carroll's writing and Sir John Tenniel's illustrations have inspired countless artists. From books and cartoons, to dolls and Teddy bears, Wonderland continues to stir the creative genius and imagination in us all.

 

The Cheshire Cat As We Know Today

A cult classic in the film world, Disney's past and present adaptations of Alice In Wonderland are by far the most renowned film depictions of Lewis Carroll's complex and very peculiar characters.

Walt Disney took interest in Carroll's cherished Alice books long before Disney's first successful animated feature in 1951. In fact, he began working on Alice animations as far back as the 1930s. Originally planned as a live-action animated film, Walt decided on an all-animated film that by the 1970s had become a huge success and delighted viewers of all ages. In the 1980s, it was even among the first Disney films to be available on VHS. Disney's more recent films, directed by Tim Burton revived the classic fable, stirring an excitement among Alice fans. The creative minds at Disney have a special touch when it comes to the whimsical world of Wonderland. Their depictions of the imagery and characters, including the Cheshire Cat, are known for their authenticity. Always puzzling and quite comical, Disney has made this classic character the star that he is today. When you think of the Cheshire, the classic Disney animations instantly come to mind. From his colorful stripes to that ear-to-ear grin, Cheshire Cat has long been a fan favorite. We are proud and overjoyed to present this charming character as our latest Steiff Exclusive!

“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!
