Richard Steiff devoted his life to creativity and innovative design after he designed the world's very first teddy bear with jointed movement in 1902. He took constant inspiration from the animal kingdom, which he studied in great depth. Over 115 years later, Margarete Steiff GmbH continues to strive for the same style and imagination in their teddy bears.
As a celebration of these values 'Grizzly Ted Cub' is the second in a series of bear cubs that embody both traditional and modern design, following on from the Spectacled Bear Cub from 2018.
Made from the finest long-pile, caramel-tipped mohair and delicately airbrushed, the Grizzly Ted Cub is a tribute to one of the world's most beautiful and impressive bear species. Showcasing not only the beauty of this majestic bear but also the distinctive hallmarks of a Steiff teddy bear, the Grizzly Ted Cub continues to pave the way for the future inspiration of designs that began with Richard Steiff's original vision over a century before.
He is limited to just 1,000 pieces and is exclusive to the UK. He comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
