The history of the teddy bear
With more than 2500 venerable teddy bears, our collection is the most extensive in the world. In addition, nowhere else can you see as many old bears from Margarete Steiff’s workshop as you can here. A significant part of the collection is devoted to the arguably most famous teddy bear manufacturer in the world and her bears with the legendary “Button in Ear”.
Outstanding rarities are the over 100-year-old PB models, that are regarded as the progenitor of the teddy bear. The sensation of the bear collection is the PGB 35. This splendid bear made in 1904 marks an important milestone in the history of the teddy bear.
