It was 135 years ago that Fritz Steiff paved the way for his sister Margarete to become one of the finest toy makers in the world. The master builder gave her motivation, later selling Margarete´s “little elephant” at the Christmas market in Heidenheim. Without his initiative, his skill, things might have been very different… Fritzle Teddy bear pays homage to Fritz Steiff. Made of light beige mohair, he wears a very special satin ribbon printed with a very famous Steiff advertising design used in the early 1900s which received enormous applause from the Toy Industry. Skillful hand airbrushing enhances the “aged” look of this important little bear.
