The iconic German toy manufacturer Steiff created the world’s first teddy bear in 1902. It’s now a heritage brand collected by toy and bear enthusiasts worldwide. Steiff’s original antique bears sell for thousands at auction, and brand-new pieces continue to be popular gifts for special occasions.
The company was founded in 1880 by Margarete Steiff, children and adults have been delighted by the incredible details found in each Steiff product for 140 years. From early pieces to the introduction of the first Teddy Bear in 1902, followed by nearly life-sized animals and stuffed versions of well-loved characters, Steiff products are as well known for being delicately handcrafted, as they are for the famous “button” placed in the ear of every Steiff creation, a feature added in 1904 to prevent counterfeits.
Limited Editions have a white label, standard pieces have a yellow label. All authentic Steiff pieces still have the famous button in the ear.
Collectors’ items tend not to be suitable for children to play with.
