Limpy Bear by Steiff 036217

40cm Chesnut mohair jointed bear.

“What if,” a Steiff designer wondered, “it was possible to tie-dye mohair, the way you tie-dye a t-shirt? What effect would you achieve?” For the answer, look no further than Limpy, another of our designer Teddy bears in the 2010 collection. The result is another first for Steiff. The tone on tone effect is an ever-changing, swirling mix of brown and blond tones. It makes no two Teddy bears exactly alike! But the mohair isn’t the only unique aspect of this unusual Teddy bear. He’s a completely new face in the Steiff assortment. He has a cream-colored mohair complexion accented by apricot and black airbrushing. His nose is lightly waxed. The insides of his ears are sewn with a longer pile cream mohair to accent his face. The edges of his paw pads are very lightly airbrushed to add extra dimension. With his broad smile and sparkling eyes, he’s a very contented Teddy bear – just waiting to bring some happiness to your collection – and your home.

Limited Edition: 2010
All steiff limited editions come with the famous Gold plated 'button-in-ear' with white tag and are supplied in a cream Steiff presentation box.

Steiff have been manufacturing bears and other collectable characters in their German Factories for over 125 years. As with all those characters made in the early days, it is still the manual skills and attention to detail that make each Steiff product wonderfully unique. Each Steiff bear is signified by a "Tag" in its left ear.
