Steiff Teddy Baby Replica 1929 was released in 1929 and was a new design for Steiff and was granted a patent in 1930. This bear is a replica of the one submitted for patent in 1929 and so has a black and white label in his ear. Limited edition of just 929 pieces.
He is full jointed and made from high quality pale corn coloured alpaca and is stuffed with wood shavings (just as the 1929 teddy was made). The bear comes with felt paw pads which have stitched claws and touch his stomach and he will 'squeak' for you! His face has black eyes and hand embroidered mouth and nose.
All the Steiff Limited Edition Bears can be recognised by the white label with the famous gold plated Steiff button in the left ear.
The Limited Edition Steiff bears are made from the traditional mohair and are fully jointed.They are also surface washable, with some only at 30 degrees. Steiff have been manufacturing bears and other collectable characters in their German factories for over 125 years.
As with all those characters made in the early days, it is still the manual skills and attention to detail that make each Steiff product wonderfully unique. As Margaret Steiff once said, 'Only the best is good enough for our children.' This value still holds true within all of Steiff's products today, and they are without doubt the most collectable bears available today. With Steiff continuing to produce exquisite limited editions along with a brilliant array of quality classic and cosy bears, their range will never stop growing. Each Steiff bear is signified by a tag in its left ear. View our range today and find something special for your friends, family or a loved one.
