No childhood is complete without a genuine Steiff Teddy bear. That’s why the designers at the company that invented this iconic plaything have created this special, traditionally styled version of the world’s favorite toy — especially for babies. This classically designed Teddy is skillfully handmade by Steiff’s talented artisans from ultra-soft fabrics in three soothing pastel colors, this one featuring a silky beige coat. To proclaim its status as a genuine Steiff product, the bear has the phrase "My First Steiff" embroidered on its paw pad and features our trademark stainless steel "Button in Ear." Like all our items for babies and children, this bear for babies is rigorously tested for safety and is certified free of harmful substances by an independent testing organization. Eyes and facial features are embroidered for added security. Machine washable. As our company founder declared more than a century ago: "Only the best is good enough for children". And there’s no better brand of toys for baby than Steiff.
