A true heirloom gift, Steiff have become synonymous with collectors toys and teddy bears since 1880. However, as we all know, the best heirlooms are the ones that aren't kept in a cupboard, but are played with over and over and over through the generations.
Steiff's Leo is incredibly sturdy, with a real weight to him, which means that even children who aren't quite walking can pull themselves up to standing beside him. The handles and rockers are made from solid wood, and the fur and mane is an acrylic/cotton mix which can be surface washed.
Leo has the kindest, gentlest face. Think Aslan. In fact, our favourite story is of a Grandfather who gave bought Leo for his new Granddaughter, complete with his very own 1st Edition copy of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe.... it quite brought a lump to our throats.
Leo is hand finished by Steiff's artisan toymakers in Germany - the very last thing they do is to fix the signature brass plated Steiff button and yellow tag through his ear, so you know this is a true Steiff creation.
