Rupert is the lovable bear from Nutwood. He is eight years older than Mickey Mouse, six years older than Winnie the Pooh and thirty eight years older than Paddington! He was in fact the very first really famous bear. He first appeared in the Daily Express on November 8th 1920 and has been anthologised in Annuals since 1936.

Steiff have created this adorable Rupert Bear to celebrate his 100th birthday in 2020. He is made from the finest winter white alpaca and he wears his traditional red jumper, yellow checked trousers and matching scarf. His cute lace-up shoes finish his outfit perfectly! He has a music box which plays the merry tune 'Rupert' - the famous theme tune to his TV series, originally sung by Jackie Lee in 1971 when it reached number 14 in the UK charts!

This special 100th Anniversary Rupert Bear is limited to 1,000 pieces and is an exclusive piece for the UK and Ireland. He comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original cardboard outer sleeve.
