Published in 1880 - the year Steiff was founded - the novel "Heidi" is one of the most popular books of all time. With more than 50 million copies sold, it is the touching story of an orphan girl raised by her grandfather in the Swiss Alps. Created "for children, and those who love children" (as quoted in its subtitle), the beloved character is now available as a collectible Steiff Teddy bear. Heidi's coat is sewn from brown tipped mohair and she wears a red linen dress embroidered with an Edelweiss blossom. The Edelweiss motif is repeated as a wool felt blossom adorning her hair. At just 15 cm / 6 inches tall, she's a darling miniature that can come along wherever you go, serving as a wonderful reminder of the heart-warming story you read so long ago.
Heidi and Peter go hand in hand - it is difficult to imagine them apart. In the classic series of children's novels, Peter and Heidi remain the best of friends, even when distance and circumstances seem to pull them apart. No matter what happens, they always have each other. Steiff is pleased to bring Heidi's companion to life in the form of Peter Teddy bear. Peter's shiny mohair coat is sewn from a tipped mohair, but in a slightly darker shade. His muzzle is shaved and his nose and mouth are hand stitched. Peter's lederhosen and vest are sewn from pure wool felt. To match Heidi, Peter's vest is embroidered with the same Edelweiss motif. Also like Heidi, he is just 15 cm / 6 inches tall - an adorable size.
