New or over ninety?
You are not so sure when take your first glimpse of our Replica Little Happy Teddy bear from 1926. Because our Steiff designers have excelled in capturing every magical characteristic of the original. Even his stuffing is excelsior, like the original. His authentic look continues with his glass eyes and loosely jointed head. He even wears a period correct ear tag with "underscored button" made of patinated steel.
But be assured Little Happy is new, despite the worn out pads and bald spots. Just take a look at the impeccable yarn of recently embroidered nose and the white Replica tag attached to his side. But we all grow old, and Little Happy will gladly grow old with you by your side.
In 1927 Richard Steiff was inspired by the American zeitgeist of the Twenties to produce a bear with a new expression and striking blue eyes. A short time later, on January 7, 1928 Steiff presents the Bear Baby "Buschy".
Steiff fans liked everything about him, just not his name. As “Petsy” he was a great sales success. Up until 1930 a total of 10,688 were sold. The look of Teddy bear Petsy replica 1928 with a 35 cm standing height, harks back to this famous bear cub.
The replica is stuffed with excelsior, has blue glass eyes and "underscored button" made of patinated steel. As a tribute to the year of his release we present Teddy bear Petsy 1928 replica in a limited edition of 928 pieces.
