Toy Shoppe Steiff exclusives

Teddy Joins Our Family Of Steiff Exclusives

We love Steiff and hold dear the many treasures they have created over their 138 year history. So one of the nice aspects of being at The Toy Shoppe has been to combine our insight into Steiff with our own imaginations to create special exclusive editions just for our Toy Shoppe customers (who we know share our particular affection for these marvelous friends). After we present our ideas to the Steiff designers, they add a bit of Steiff magic and bring them to life. It has been our true joy to work with Steiff to create pieces that are both appealing in their own right as well as having historical significance for the collector. Our exclusives are firmly grounded in the Steiff philosophy that has delighted generations around the world. We focus on the importance of Steiff and what we feel makes a particular Steiff piece special.

Our new Teddy is an extraordinary addition to an already exceptional family. With the warmth of his custom Schulte mohair, he brightens up the entire room. He is the perfect size to hold and hug and has a long, rich voice. Delightful!

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 has come to symbolize quality collectibles and wonderful, lifelong friends for children.

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 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 commemorative medallion?

We worked very closely with Steiff to design our happy Teddy. His classic design features a hand-stitched nose and mouth in the famous red color that has been historically associated with Steiff since the beginning. We added extra embroidery on the paw pad... in the shape of the classic Steiff bear head that adorned the original chest tag we are commemorating with this Teddy. His soft brown pupil eyes will surely steal your heart away!

This rich, custom-made Schulte mohair has been designed exclusively for our commemorative Teddy. Inspired by the vibrant golden-yellow of his bear head tag...Teddy's lush, softly curled mohair coat glows happy, happy, happy!

“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!
