Created in 1909, the original Teddy bear on which our replica is based would have had the chance to “bear” witness to visits to the factory by Margarete Steiff herself. Perhaps it was even her suggestion to change his size to 46 centimeters (18 inches) back then. Stuffed with wood shavings and wearing a coat of genuine Steiff-Schulte mohair, this replica, like the original 1909 version, 'bears' the 'underscored button' made of patinated steel and an ear tag from the era. So if you become the proud owner of one of the 909 replicas, listen to his growl and follow his gaze — he may be fondly recalling the many happy hours spent with Margarete — exactly 110 years ago.
