The BearBrick (BE@RBRICK) Teddy bears are 28 cm / 11.2 inches in size, 6-way jointed (!), made from black and cream white colored mohair and are limited to 1,500 pieces. BE@RBRICKs are a form of collectible toy that resemble a cross between LEGO and well, a bear. These block-style figurines boast teddy bear-style heads that have become an integral pillar of the collectible toy scene. In fact, it wouldn’t be so far-fetched to say that it almost single-handedly carved out the fad of toy collecting in modern times, treading the very fine line between toy and art. Since its inception, BE@RBRICKs have become one of the most recognizable characters in the world, and some of the most sought after. While regular toy figurines are normally reserved for kids, these bear-like objects have spoken to a more sophisticated crowd. Having been known to sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars on resell markets (the most expensive one sold for close to $200,000 USD), BE@RBRICKs are anything but juvenile. BE@RBRICKS are designed and produced by Japan’s MediCom Toy, a company that is best known for its plastic figurines. The company was founded in 1996 to make limited edition figures and licensed products. It has long created plastic figurines of popular culture. The Steiff BE@RBRICK has a stitched nose made with yarn, no eyes, a ribbon that has BE@RBRICK and Steiff printed on it, a chest tag in the form a Teddy bear head that has Steiff BE@RBRICK © 2016 Medicom Toy printed on it and the paws are embroidered with MEDICOM TOY on one and @ on the other.
