The founder of the company Steiff, Margarete Steiff, is considered as the inventor of the teddy bear and made already in 1874 children happy with their cuddly toys. Meanwhile, the small manufactory has become a large company and makes the known stuffed animals with the button in the ear. The selection is huge and includes almost the entire animal kingdom in small and life-size. The Steiff quality promise is an integral part of Steiff's corporate culture and guarantees the best materials, production and use. Today, the company also offers children's clothing and toys in addition to its stuffed animals.
