CAUTION! This product is not a toy and is intended for adult collectors only.
On the roads of France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, this courageous cyclist bear follows the road shown by its predecessors: from Fausto Coppi to Jacques Anquetil, from Eddy Mercks to Lance Armstrong, he keeps up to those famous champions and probably intends to rise to fame as they did! He proudly wears the yellow shirt of the winner, and of course took all its precautions: a well filled water bottle, a tire inner tube "just in case". With his new bicycle, he is ready to climb the famous Tourmalet pass...or perhaps, more simply to ride across pretty country roads, pedalling with his nose in the wind? This jointed bear has been lovingly produced by hand from the finest light blond mohair. The "Tour de Steiff" bear was a limited edition of 1,500 pieces exclusively produced for the Netherlands, Belgium and France.
