You hear the word ‘Steiff’ and you think expensive and collectible bears. That’s not quite the case here, but the 60th anniversary Miffy by Steiff ticks two of the boxes.
Amazingly, Dick Bruna’s Miffy character is 60 years old this year and to celebrate, Miffy has been recreated in a premium mohair by the high-end German toy company and teddy bear specialist.
Of course, Miffy is still very much a rabbit, but a rabbit with that short-pile mohair finish. The Steiff Miffy is also fully jointed and has an embroidered mouth and eyes, an orange dress (with anniversary logo) and of course, the famous Steiff gold plated button in the ear.
Now the bit that’s a little harder to swallow. If you like the idea of your little one playing with this, you might want to reconsider when you hear that the price is £169. But as we said, it is a limited edition (with certificate to prove it), so it might be a decent investment if you do look after it.
Oh yes, if you want something a little cheaper, there is also a Steiff Miffy Keyring too.
