Richard Steiff devoted his life to creativity and innovative design after he designed the world's very first teddy bear with jointed movement in 1902. He took constant inspiration from the animal kingdom, which he studied in great depth. 118 years later, Margarete Steiff GmbH continues to strive for the same style and imagination in their teddy bears.
As a celebration of these values, 'Panda Ted Cub' is the third bear in a series of bear cubs that embody both traditional and modern design, following on from the Spectacled Bear Cub from 2018 and the Grizzly Ted Cub from 2019.
Made from the finest long-pile, black and white mohair and delicately airbrushed, the Panda Ted Cub is a tribute to one of the world's most beautiful and fascinating bear species. Combining the distinctive hallmarks of a Steiff teddy bear with the beauty of this placid and striking bear, Panda Ted Cub continues to pave the way for the future inspiration of designs that began with Richard Steiff's original vision over a century before.
Panda Cub measures 28cm high and is five way jointed meaning both his arms and legs can be moved as well as his head.
Limited to only 1,000 pieces and exclusive to the UK only. He comes complete with his own Steiff gift box and numbered certificate of authenticity.
