Margarete Steiff GmbH takes enormous pride in knowing it has always remained at the forefront of the toy industry.
The company says: ‘Not only did we gift children the very first soft toy in 1880, but we took the toy Industry – and indeed the world – by storm with our inspirational invention, the Teddy bear, in 1902.’
Steiff has pursued excellence with determination, fuelled by founder Margarete Steiff’s guiding principle that “only the best is good enough for our children”. The company is lavish with history, romance and nostalgia, which makes giving the gift of Steiff very special indeed.
The catalogue range is extensive and it’s here you will find the ‘My First Steiff range’, which consists of washable Teddy bears, rabbits and elephants. These soft, cuddly companions make an adorable keepsake gift to celebrate the birth of a newborn, a christening or a first birthday.
Each version displays My First Steiff on the footpad, and has baby soft plush, stitched eyes and of course, the famous ‘Button in ear’, ensuring a genuine Steiff – a friend forever.
