Steiff is a German-based plush toy company. It was founded in 1880 by Margarete Steiff,
The Steiff company motto, as styled by Margarete Steiff, is “Only the best is good enough for children“.
Steiff products are subject to meticulous testing and inspection. They are required to be highly flame resistant and, among other things, smaller pieces such as eyes must be able to resist considerable tension, wear and tear, etc.
The most common materials used in Steiff toys are alpaca, felt, mohair, and woven plush.
The famed “button in ear” was devised by Margarete’s nephew Franz in 1904, to keep counterfeits from being passed off as authentic Steiff toys. It is metal and originally had the symbol of an elephant, later replaced by the name “Steiff”. The button is still used to distinguish Steiff toys from fakes. Some special toys have both the elephant and the name.
