Today's BIG item is:
Steiff Giraffe on Wheels!
The story: (courtesy of Steiff) In 1892, a very special success story rolled in - the Steiff animals on wheels. Thanks to the creative genius of Richard Steiff, the Steiff animals of stately size have been able to move on sturdy cast iron wheels - to bring pleasure to both young and young-at-heart Steiff fans as "active" pull along animals. The giraffe made of finest mohair on cast iron wheels also has great plans and standing a grand 55 centimetres (22 inches) tall, it wants to go above and beyond - day after day. Always ready for new adventures, it gazes out at the world with a curious and freindly expression in its large pupil-eyes and encourages its proud new owner to stroke its silky fur that is dyed in an intricate, lifelike giraffe pattern. The giraffe's incomparably realistic-looking overall impression is created thanks to a special airbrush technique with which the entire visual appearance and facial expression of this beautiful animal was handcrafted by an experienced artist. This animal is limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide, has the classic, geuine wood wool stuffing and proudly bears the gold-plated "Button in Ear". 22 inches. EAN:036026
Regularly priced at $795; Our special for OctoBEARfest, $695.
