There's always something happening in Margarete's garden. But sometimes Kitty Cat doesn't seem to notice. She's preoccupied with her ball of wool, gingerly batting it back and forth from paw to paw. * Kitty is the 4th whimsical creature in the "Margarete's Garden" series. * Kitty features both movement and music * Wind her key and a music box plays the beloved German melody: "Alle Voglein sind schon da" * Made from a gorgeous combination of grey and white Alpaca * Hand air-brushed details give her an enchanting expression * Size: 12"
Who knows children’s toys better than the inventors of the teddy bear? Steiff, the world’s oldest plush manufacturer (and the company best known for creating the teddy bear) was founded in 1880 by Margarete Steiff, a seamstress who, due to polio, was limited to sewing with one hand. The famous “Button in Ear” trademark was introduced in 1904 by Franz Steiff, Margarete’s nephew, distinguishing every Steiff toy. While nearly all of the world’s stuffed animals is made with inexpensive knitted plush, Steiff’s creations are made from cuddly soft materials like woven fur, so you can be sure your tot is getting the very best.
