Steiff is the world's oldest and most renowned maker of classically featured teddy bears. When Margarete Steiff started her manufacturing back in the late 19th century, she used felt cloth to make soft toys. Margarete's nephew, Robert, asked his aunt to make a bear with moving arms and legs, sort of a boy's version of a girl's doll. Said and done, in 1902 Margarete made a bear that would be the predecessor to today's teddy bear. The early teddies had a somewhat longer nose, longer limbs and a neck hump. They were compactly stuffed with wood wool. Some of the Steiff teddies still have the classical look with longer noses, long paws and the typical hump at the back of the neck. These teddies have movable arms and legs and turnable heads. Steiff has also created a teddy with a more modern look. These teddies have shorter noses and rounder forms. In most cases their limbs are not movable. Instead, their whole bodies are fully flexible.
