Remember those halcyon days spent peering through the window of your local toy store with your parents in tow? An assortment of Steiff plush animals were having a tea party, and you wanted nothing more than to curl up in the arms of the large Steiff bear. Founded in 1880 at Giengen an der Brenz, Germany, Margarete Steiff GmbH is one of the oldest and longest running toy companies in the world. It has gathered a huge following of collectors who are always on the lookout for vintage Steiff. Hand sewn and made from the finest materials, these animals have gained a reputation for quality, often being made from luxury fabrics like alpaca, cotton velvet, mohair, and woven fur. Steiff has also always been known for its diverse catalogue of stuffed animals, which includes bears, monkeys, donkeys, camels, horses, pigs, mice, dogs, cats, rabbits, and giraffes. It?s hard to imagine that the creation that started it all was a simple felt elephant that started out as a pincushion.
