Early material, from 1904-1930s is in great demand, particularly from Steiff, but also from other German manufacturers including Cramer, Strunz and Schuco.

So the news last week that grizzly bears in Yellowstone Park are to become fair game for gun-toting Americans for the first time in 30 years has me twitching my whiskers in sympathy.After purchasing a vintage teddy bear, you are advised to wrap him in a watertight bag and freeze him for 24 hours to kill any possible bugs that might eat into the fabric.

I won't hesitate to buy from you again if needing bears etc;your customer service was brilliant! The bear - called Bevo - is in superb condition and comes as part of a collection including a tiger and an elephant.
