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.

Steiff Teddy Elmar, 40cm 4.9 5 8 8
Perfect present Looking for a teddy for our first granddaughter, must be soft and cuddly, this one certainly fits the bill, washable as well PERFECT!!! 19 August 2014
Well made product I brought this for our new granddaughter, I was really pleased about the size the movement of arms and legs and the overall look, plus its washable. My daughter was also delighted with it. I ordered it on line to collect at my local store fabulous service. 29 July 2014
A real treasure I purchased this delightful Steiff bear for my latest little Granddaughter. He has the most adorable expression and all his joints move including his head making him very interactive for a small child. One of the reasons that I selected this particular teddy bear is that he is totally machine washable which means he can grow old gracefully and not lose his self respect! He is a nice size to cuddle and is soft to the touch. In fact he is so perfect that he is in real danger of being very spoiled and becoming a real treasure for many many years. 14 August 2012
Excellent Gift For New Baby This Steiff Teddy was a perfect gift for a new baby. Good size, not too big or too small and good quality as you would expect from Steiff. Would recommend. 02 May 2012

A classic A classic. It is well made and of good quality. Although it feels like the price tag is raised by the brand it's a collectable item to keep for years. 27 January 2012
Proper Old Teddy! Great quality - as you would expect from the Steiff brand, and surprisingly good value. This is a proper, last-a-lifetime traditional teddy with poseable arms and legs, soft fur and Steiff button in the ear - a real investment! 19 January 2012
