Limpy Teddy Bear
Steiff Teddy Bear, Limpy. What if, a Steiff designer wondered, it was possible to tie-dye mohair, the way you tie-dye a t-shirt? Look no further than Limpy. The result is another first for Steiff and Schulte mohair. The tone on tone effect is an ever-changing, swirling mix of brown, chestnut and blond tones. But that’s not all. Designer Teddy bear Limpy has a completely new, fresh, inviting face that is unlike any that Steiff has featured in the past. He has a cream coloured mohair complexion, accentuated by apricot and black airbrushing. His nose is lightly waxed. The insides of his ears are sewn with a larger pile, cream mohair to accent his face. The edges of his paw pads are lightly airbrushed to add extra dimension. He is 40cm and a limited edition of 2,010 pieces worldwide and will sell for just $395. With his broad smile and sparkling eyes, he’s an especially charming character Teddy bear, just waiting to bring joy to your home.
