Most of us have adored Winnie the Pooh at some point in our childhood. The plump bear is cuddlable at best and presenting us with a chance to snuggle with it is Steiff! Being a global authority on plush animals since 1880, the renowned marquee has recently created a life-size version of the stuffed bear and we can’t wait to get our hands on it already!
Inspired by the classic 1960s Disney version of A.A. Milne’s “silly old bear”, the limited-edition stuffed toy measures almost 3′-tall. It sits upright and has three-way disc joints in his head and arms that allow him to hold out his arms for a hug. Talk about bear hugs!
Steiff’s version is made of blond mohair and wears the trademark red shirt as seen in the Disney films and television programs. It boasts the standard Steiff gold-plated “Button in Ear” that marks the stuffed animal’s superior quality and German make. If further features a washable surface and safety eyes and is best suited for adult collectors instead of kids.
Only 500 pieces of the life-sized Pooh are currently available for purchase (on Steiff’s official website and select online retailers), with each costing a grand $1,295.00. Care to have a cuddly Pooh of your own?
