PB55 World's First Teddy Bear

PB55 World's First Teddy Bear

“PB 55” was the first Steiff teddy bear ever made — and definitely the most mysterious. More than a century ago, 3,000 pieces were manufactured and sent to the U.S. via cargo ship, but they never arrived. No one knows what happened to these revolutionary Teddies, and none have ever been found. Now Steiff is pleased to present a new collectible version of this iconic and historic Teddy. This one is updated with the latest eco-friendly materials, including a silky-smooth bamboo coat, plant-based paw pads, and a stuffing material made from corn fibers. Handcrafted with the finest materials and loving attention to detail, Steiff toys have been treasured by kids and collectors alike since 1880.

  • Handmade of Eco-friendly bamboo viscose plush, plant-based paw pads, corn fiber stuffing.
  • Five-way jointed.
  • Safety eyes.
  • Made in Germany.
  • 14" high.
  • This product is not a toy; intended for adult collectors only.
