Christmas Bear Santa

There's nothing like seeing children's faces when they first glimpse at their toys under the Christmas tree. Imagine the surprise when they find a big cuddly teddy bear dressed like a Santa. Did Santa leave it there by mistake? Is that his toy? No, it's for the children! The teddy bear holds a star that the children can use to make a very special wish. Meanwhile, Santa is very pleased with himself for leaving such an unexpected gift under the tree.

Besides Santa, Steiff Teddy Bears, made in Germany, have the longest tradition of teddy bear making since the early 1900s.  Margarete Steiff was confined to a wheelchair due to polio, but it did not stop her from being creative and innovative and starting a company that would become one of the largest teddy bear companies in the world.
