"Teddies for Tomorrow" 1912 Collectible Teddy Bear
When the Titanic sank in 1912, the world mourned. And to commemorate this tragic event, Steiff produced a black Teddy bear with eyes set against a red felt backing, to simulate the redness of crying. Very few of these bears were made, and fewer still have survived. Today, these rare bears are among the "holy grails" for any serious Steiff collector. For 2023, Steiff will reintroduce this most sough-after of bears as part of our "Teddies for tomorrow" collection of environmentally-conscious bears. He’s sewn from linen plush, has herbal-based felt paws, and is stuffed with corn fiber. He’s a brand new version of a true Steiff classic, reborn for a new generation of collectors.
