Over 130 years ago Margarete Steiff combined her zest for life and talent as a seamstress to create a collection of little
pin-cushion felt animals. Inspired by an incident in which President Theodore Roosevelt spared the life of a baby grizzly,
Margarete produced the first Steiff Teddy Bear, since when the company has grown to become the world's best known producer
of hand-stitched Teddy Bears and Animals. A few Steiff Bears have been known to fetch over £100,000 at auction! Available
as rare Limited Editions or 'Cosy' Plush animals, Steiff Teddy Bears and Animals are loved by children, adults and collectors
the world over. As a Steiff Specialist, we take particular pride in our Royal Commemorative Steiff Exclusives.
