Each year Steiff releases their new holiday selections to the delight of collectors all over the world and this year is no different. From a musical Father Christmas edition to a happy and fun snowman, this year’s holiday selection will fill everyone’s heart with cheer.
Would you like to build a snowman? Steiff would, and they did! Meet Monty. This delightful guy is made of mohair, but is so fluffy you would swear he was made of snowflakes. He certainly is a dapper fellow though, when you look at his wool felt hat and elegant striped scarf.And of course, what snowman wouldn’t be complete without a carrot for his nose.
The bear makers at Steiff even planned a special treat for Monty and the Musical Christmas Teddy by making the edition size 1225 – what a neat nod to Christmas Day!
And for anyone who is looking for a gift for the Steiff collector on their list, you won’t need to check it twice, because this Merry edition makes the perfect gift for any Steiff collector. He even plays Santa Claus Is Coming To Town with his music box.
This handsome Teddy is created to look like an traditional Father Christmas with his long grey robe. The embroidery on the robe also adds to his old world appeal. His long white beard gives you the feeling of an old, wise man that has come to visit you for the holidays. And being a musical Teddy, who wouldn’t welcome him into their home.
The Teddy itself is made of mohair and he is bringing you a holly leaf that has been crafted in felt and airbrushed with little details. The Steiff artists have given a very old world European feel to him and captured a very gentle expression.
And for this Christmas, Steiff has gone back to where it started, The Nativity. This edition captures the scene of the manger and Mary and Joseph with the baby Jesus all represented in sweet little Teddy bears. Inside the handmade barn made of spruce are the 3 Teddys as well as an ox and a donkey. Little baby Jesus is wrapped in swaddling clothes made of wool felt. The scene is a beautifully created and is sure to be an inspiring Christmas addition to a Steiff collection.
