Teddy Companion With Personalized Medallion
by Steiff

Teddy Companion Proudly Joins Our Family Of Steiff Exclusives With His Personalized Medallion

In 1902, Steiff created the 55PB, a mohair plush bear that is the basis for the modern Teddy Bear we know today. Over the ensuing years, Steiff refined their designs and in 1920 they created The Classic 1920 Teddy Bear, a Teddy that many regard as the pinnacle of Steiff's design and charm, which has been a favorite ever since. Teddy Companion is a wonderful replica of this delightful bear. His inviting face is traditional, yet incredibly friendly and appealing. He combines all the qualities Steiff is known for in one spectacular bear. Now, we are pleased to offer this classic 1920s Teddy with his own personalized medallion.

Teddy Companion is made in true Steiff tradition with Schulte mohair, all-wool felt pad pads and an unforgettable expression. Such a sweet face that will draw you in with soulful eyes and a hand-stitched nose. Measuring 13.8 inches, he is five-way jointed and complements our yellow Commemorative Chest Tag Bear, Teddy, perfectly. Give him a tip back and forth and his growler will sound out. He has many stories from days long ago to share with you.

Our new Teddy Companion is an extraordinary addition to an already exceptional family. With the warmth of his brassy Schulte mohair, he hearkens back to traditional bears of yesteryear. He is the perfect size to hold and hug and has a long, rich voice. He's wonderful!

Celebrating Steiff's Iconic
Paper Chest Tag

The bear head chest tag was used by Steiff from the 1920s to the 1970s, a truly amazing period in the history of Steiff. This paper tag with its bright, cheerful design is etched in the minds of those of us who grew up with Steiff.

The bright colors in the design evoked fun and playfulness. In the center, the paper tag provided our friends' name. The arrow around the outside of the red circle reminded our parents to always look for the Steiff 'MARKE', meaning of course, the world famous 'Button-In-Ear' tag. This became a reassuring symbol of a quality-made toy for their child.

Spanning almost half a century, the bear head became an immediately recognized symbol of friendship and fun to children everywhere. The original design featured a more realistic bear head. This was modified in 1950 with a more stylized bear head.

In 1972, Steiff retired the bear head chest tag, but they continue to use the bear head art on their packaging materials. Every time we see that friendly face, it stirs fond memories, truly a testament to how timeless good design can be. It's easy to see the inspiration behind our adorable Teddy!

A Teddy Bear Inspired By Classic Steiff Design

For over a century, the purity and charm of Steiff's Classic bear remain strong and cherished by generations. Our Teddy Companion is based on the beloved 1920s Steiff Bear design - from the decade when the first bear head chest tag was used! What better Steiff bear to wear your personalized medallion?

“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!
