Cuddly teddy bear "Flocke"

Product 8 of 8

This cuddly teddy bear "Flocke" belongs to the SILKE-Collection of the Kösen toy manufacturer.
These teddy bears are hand made from woven plush. The filling is made of polyester fibers. Flocke is very cuddly, soft and great for snuggling, hugging, and receiving solace. "Flocke" is the German term for a flake - and hence the name implies altready the softness.

Where does the name "Teddy" come from? There are two versions available, both take place in the beginning of 20th century. From what we know the second version is right - Richard Steiff founded the first teddy bear with moveable joints.

First story: In 1902 the teddy bear was named after the American president Theodore Roosevelt, nicknamed "Teddy". It is said that a bear hunt was unsuccessful. Nevertheless, in order to offer something to the President, a young bear was tied down and thus could be shot. Roosevelt , however, proved to be a fair sportsman and refused to do so. The cartoon then pictured in the newspaper inspired Mrs. and Mr. Mitchom to create a fabric bear. They asked the President to agree on the name "Teddy 's Bear". The teddy bear became a great success, and in 1903 first ones with movable joints had been produced.

Second story: Margarete Steiff (Germany) produced stuffed animals of all kinds in Giengen (Germany). Beginning of the 20th century the doll industry expanded to a great success and Magarete Steiff looked for new products. Finally, in 1903, she presented her first teddy bear with movable joints at the toy fair in Leipzig. This one was designed by her nephew Richard. Although the appeal of the show was initially low, at the end she received of a major contract for 3,000 copies by an U.S. dealer.

Finally, no matter who is responsible for the creation of the teddy bear: It is an essential part in our children's rooms. The teddy bear gives children comfort and shares joy and daily life. It's a real friend - and with many even for a lifetime.

Diese süße Flocke ist ganz weich. Außen das Fell und innen schön weich gestopft, dass man sie dauernd kuscheln möchte. In den Füßen ist Granulat. Ich finde sie zuckersüß, auch für kuschelbedürftige Erwachsene :D .
Sie hat super Qualität. Die Felle von Kösen finde ich so oder so unübertrefflich, das hat sonst keine Marke meiner Meinung nach.
