Product Description

In the late 1960s, Steiff registered a design for a young baby bear with a distinguished face which was so popular it became a mainstay of their range for almost 30 years.

This striking facial feature was an area of mohair around the bear’s eyes and muzzle which was much shorter than the rest of his head and body. It was shaped like a heart and it earned him the nickname “The Love Heart Bear”.

Now, Steiff have created a special tribute to this 50 year old classic exclusively for Danbury Mint. Steiff’s designers carefully examined the prized bear, tracing each individual piece. They used these tracings to make a brand new pattern with the same endearing features as its predecessor.

His warm almond-coloured fur is made from genuine mohair and he has dazzling brown pupil eyes, delicate hand-stitched features and a charming apricot-coloured bow.

“The Love Heart Bear” will be issued in a strict limited edition. Only 1,969 pieces can ever be made for worldwide demand.

Actual size is 11" (28cm) standing.
