Teddy Bear With Little Felt Elephant, 140 Anniversary EAN 006166
by Steiff

A special creation for Steiff's 140th Anniversary!

It all began with the little elephant... In 1880, Margarete Steiff ran a dress-making business in Giengen. Originally intended as a pin cushion, the little elephant formed the foundation of the company, upon which she built in the ensuing years. Elephants with colorful saddles formed a major part of the range. What else should Steiff's 140 Anniversary Teddy bear present? He is proud of his little felt elephant with a blue and yellow saddle. At 11.75 inches and made the finest beige Schulte mohair, this five-way jointed Teddy features embroidery on his left paw pad that reads 140 years. He has an unforgettable face with a brown hand-stitched nose. The blue colored satin bow around his neck is a lovely classic color and complements the saddle of his little elephant friend. He wears a special 140 anniversary chest tag that features the iconic elephant logo and 'bears' the iconic gold Steiff 'button-in-ear' with the elephant motif. He is indeed a historically important addition to anyone's collection. Teddy Bear With Little Felt Elephant EAN 006166 is a 2020 Steiff Steiff Worldwide white tag edition limited to 1880 pieces. Although this is a collectors item, it is suitable for ages 14 years and up.

“Only the best

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!
