Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
When I was younger, I always slept together with plushies! Just having them by my side always made me feel so much safer!
Today I’m going to be taking a look at…
Steiff x Hatsune Miku!
|The electronic diva Hatsune Miku is joining up with the German-based teddy bear brand known for their high quality, ‘Steiff’ for a rather unique Miku teddy bear collaboration!
The teddy bear features lots of special touches in the image of Miku, such as a frilly collar and necktie, a ’01’ mark sewn onto the shoulder and even a silhouette of Miku embroidered onto the sole of the foot! The overall color of the teddy has also been matched up with Miku, while the soft and fluffy feeling of the mohair is a delight to touch! Each and every bear is made by hand to create a Hatsune Miku teddy of the utmost quality for fans to keep by their side!
Our Miku-san has teamed up with the world famous teddy maker, Steiff!!! ♪
I can’t thank them enough for working together with us!!
Just look at this soft and fluffy hair!!
△ It feels so nice to touch!! I wish I could hold onto this mohair all day long!
As the teddy is a collaboration item with Miku, you’ll notice things that link to her! The color is of course the first thing, but also note the necktie and collar that have obviously been made with so much love!! If you take a closer look at the tie, you’ll also notice that it is even has the back fold!! ☆
Also take note of his furry feet! <○><○>
The right foot has ‘Miku’ sewn onto the design! ♪
The pink coloring comes from the pink found on her hair accessories!
Plus the arm faithfully keeps the ‘01′ mark! (●´ω｀●)
As if a Steiff teddy bear wasn’t already one of the most lovable things in the world… now it comes filled with Miku-themed goodness!!! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
But… what exactly is Steiff …?
Steiff (Margarete Steiff GmbH) is a German plush toy company started in 1880 and known for its high quality! In 1902 they were the first company to create the teddy bear that the whole world has come to love, and even now they are the top brand of teddies around the globe! φ(．． )
Each of their products are carefully handmade in Germany!
All Steiff bears are works of art made the classic, traditional way!!
Each of the bears also features the Steiff Ear Tag and Steiff “Button in Ear” – a worldwide trademark of unmistakable quality! (●´ω｀●)
The tags on normal Steiff bears are yellow with red text, but limited edition ‘Collector’ products such as the Miku bear instead have a white tag with red text!
△ The yellow tag has an item number and material used printed on it.
The white tag shows the item number, year of manufacture and serial number!
Here we have a size comparison with a Nendoroid!
Another thing that I’m sure vigilant readers have already noticed, is that her left foot contains an embroidered silhouette of Miku!!
Also, all the photos I’ve shown so far have been of sitting poses…
But the arms and legs are articulated!! ヽ(ﾟ◇ﾟ )ﾉ
The teddy doesn’t quite stand on it’s own, but you can help it along by offering your hand for some adorable photos like this one! ♥︎
△ I want to take him out for walkies!!
It probably no longer even needs to be said, but another trait well known about Steiff bears is their durability!! It’ll stay by your side for years to come!
This really is a collaboration of dreams between the best of the best in teddy bears and out angel Miku-san!! Not only does it look absolutely adorable, but is made with top materials and carefully manufactured to create a top quality item for fans to enjoy!
Grab one and add some love to your home!
