Richard Steiff designed the very first jointed Teddy bear in 1902, a child’s toy bear gifted with movement, a bear that would take the world by storm. Henceforth Richard devoted his entire life to creativity and innovative design and found constant inspiration within the animal kingdom, which he studied in great depth. Nearly 120 years on Margarete Steiff GmbH continues to strive for excellence in style and imagination within the design of their Teddy bears of today. In 2018 Steiff proudly presented the first in a series of bear cubs that pay tribute to the providers of their inspiration, yet unfold a brand new fresh design. The wondrous dweller of the lush high altitude forests clothing the slopes of the Andes Mountains, the only living bear species native to South America, the Spectacled Bear is the closest living kin of the short-faced bears of the Middle Pleistocene to Late Pleistocene age. They are one of the most endangered bear species in the world; the most endangered being the Giant Panda Bear which is their closest living relative today. In 2019 Steiff are proud to offer the second cub in this exciting series. The Grizzly bear is one of the world’s most beautiful and impressive creatures. Formidable in size, these giants are gentle and peaceful. Grizzly bears earned their name, not by their nature, but due to their incredible dense fur that has white-tipped hair giving a grizzled appearance. This little dearie cub totally embodies the striking markings of his incentive yet embraces individuality. The finest mohair has been used to capture the bear’s thick grizzled coat and the attention to detail is that synonymous with Steiff. A heavenly delectable cub he is indeed.
