Editor's Notes

Renowned for their luxurious and high quality producst, German based Steiff have a long tradition of making beautiful plush toys.

Established in 1880 by Margarete Steiff, the initial toys were elephants, which Margarete found the design for in a magazine and sold as a pincushion to her friends. Seeing that the little elephants appealed to children, Margarete designed and created other lovable animal characters for children to enjoy.

Using high quality materials such as alpaca, felt and mohair and with the motto ‘Only the best is good enough for children’ has made Steiff toys ideal presents and gifts.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by A little bit too small to justify the price I ordered this teddy after reading the positive reviews on John Lewis. The teddy I received measured roughly what was on the web, but was smaller than I had imagined given this information. The quality of the bear seemed very good, and it did have a lovely texture and feel. I ended up returning mine, as it just wasn't right to be that special bear. 17 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely Teddy I was absolutely delighted with the quality of this teddy bear. It is beautifully soft and just the right size for my nearly one-year old grandson. He loves it. After gazing at its face for a few seconds he likes to bury his face in the soft fur and he keeps going back for more! I think this is going to be a real bedtime favourite. I have also been very impressed with the click and collect service. It is so easy to view all similar items and then make a decision. 26 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantasic bear, love it !! Reall good service, my first experience of JL on line and local pick up, it wont be my last. 09 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Steiff Teddy Elmar, 32cm Bought for our granddaughter for her 7th birthday, very happy with purchase, something for a keepsake. 24 September 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Purchased as a Christening Present Bought this as Christening Present for my Godson. Great little teddy bear, my Godson may only be 6 months old but the bear is suitable as it's well made and should easily last him until he's 16! Also used the click & collect service as I don't live near a John Lewis dept. store but do have a local Waitrose, so picked it up from there on my way to the Church. Nice one! 30 August 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice present shame about the packaging The bear is really nice present/keep sake – I bought it for a christening present but was a little disappointed with the packaging. It came in a clear plastic bag and not in a protective/storage Steiff box as I thought it would have. 29 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by a friendly bear! My recent purchase of the Steiff Teddy Elmar was a success! The bear is s gift for a new addition to my best friend's family. for a new grand daughter. The bear is sitting up at the dining table already a part of the new family! The purchase on line was carried out smoothly - delivery was exactly as promised and the follow up to check all was well is another feature of the good service offered by John Lewis. Thank you - we are all happy with the bear and John Lewis. 05 August 2012
