Steiff’s 1907 “A Million Hugs” Bears Arrive at Beacon’s Glow Collectibles

Steiff’s 1907 “A Million Hugs” Bears Arrive at Beacon’s Glow Collectibles

PRLEAP-January 8, 2007 - Did you know that in the year 1907 Margarete Steiff GmbH (better known as Steiff) of Giengen, Germany, produced an astounding number of almost a million teddy bears (973,999 to be exact)? This record has yet to be surpassed.

Beacon's Glow Collectibles, an online gift and collectibles retail store specializing in dolls, bears, & candles (http://www.beaconsglow.com), has Steiff’s 1907 “A Million Hugs” Bears in stock and ready for ordering.

Just five years after Richard Steiff invented the Teddy Bear, expectations were exceeded with the production of 973,999 hand-made teddy bears. To achieve this feat, 1,800 outworkers assisted Steiff’s 400 employees in the factory.Rumor has it that even the local priest helped to stuff teddy bears!

Incidentally, there are at least 30 operations on average involved in the production process of each and every Steiff plush animal. The Steiff "Button in Ear" trademark truly distinguishes each and every teddy bear and plush animal as a symbol of ultimate quality for toys. The "Button In Ear" trademark was invented in 1904 by Franz Steiff, one of Margarete's nephews, to distinguish Steiff bears from all others. Since 1904, each and every piece that Steiff has produced has the Steiff trademark button attached to its left ear. What further distinguishes Steiff's "Classic" teddy bears is that they are made of the finest mohair. Mohair is produced from the fur of the Angora goat, which has an incredibly soft texture and beautiful velvety finish.

These incredible “A Million Hugs” Steiff replica anniversary bears come in 3 classic mohair colors:bright brass, red-brown, and wool-white.Each limited edition bear is a special tribute to Steiff’s 100th Anniversary celebrating 1907 as a record year for Steiff teddy bear production. Additionally, each mohair bear wears an elegant blue bow with "1907" and "2007" embroidered in gold thread. The gold-plated "Button in Ear" features the Steiff lettering from the time with the final “F” tailing back to the “R”. A Million Hugs Teddy Bear by Steiff comes from a worldwide limited edition of only 3,000 bears each.

After almost 125 years in business, this company continues to thrive and its products are in as much demand by collectors as they have ever been. Through research Beacon’s Glow Collectibles has found that the latest teddy bear collector trend is to buy reproductions of plush animals that are anywhere from 90 to 100 years old. Collectors yearn for the antique look, but don’t desire the actual antiques themselves. These special 1907 anniversary Steiff teddy bears fit these requirements perfectly, and are sure to delight collectors of all ages by providing a lifetime of pleasure and enjoyment.

Especially for Steiff collectors, the Beacon’s Glow Collectibles site is broken down into 2 organized categories:Steiff North American Exclusives (http://www.beaconsglow.com/Steiff-Bears-North-American-Exclusives-s/590.htm) and Steiff Worldwide Classic Collection (http://www.beaconsglow.com/Steiff-Worldwide-Limited-Editions-s/611.htm).This allows a potential customer to quickly locate a particular Steiff item of interest.
