Don’t forget about the babies this Christmas! Steiff is a German company that specializes in beautiful baby toys and plush animals. From gorgeous teddy bears to baby clothing and alot in between. The story behind the Steiff company is a sweet one. It all began with Margarete Steiff, a young woman whose dreams started with a pin cushion in the shape of an elephant and a lot of determination. Her company started in 1880 and has been going strong ever since. Now Steiff products are available in other countries, including the USA!
Steiff creates their beautiful baby toys and plush animals with the highest grade of materials and they follow strict guidelines and inspection. They have several different lines, some even including Mohair. They even have some cute character items like Wizard of Oz and Charlie Brown.
They sent me a couple of their Little Circus items and they are super duper cute!! I got a Little Circus Turtle and a Little Circus Elephant! I’m really excited about the elephant because that was the animal that Margarete Steiff loved and held dear to her heart! These make perfect gifts for baby this Christmas or any time of year. Consider adding them to a baby shower basket, even! Momma will fall in love with them and so will baby. They’re so soft, plush and cuddly!
I know that the prices are a little higher for the Steiff baby toys and plush animals, compared to what you’d normally pay for a stuffed animal but you have to consider the craftmanship behind it. Some things, especially items that baby will be loving on, kissing and sleeping with, are priceless. These are the great ones that will become an heirloom. They last a lifetime and your kids can pass them on to their kids. Don’t worry…some of their products are machine washable, which is perfect for babies! Each item description on their site will tell you if they’re machine washable or not.
I am officially in love with Steiff and their products. I love their love of toys and plush animals!! I’m also very excited to announce that Steiff is participating in our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide and we’ll be giving away one Little Circus Turtle and Elephant!! Please stay tuned, we’ll be sharing more about that very soon!
