No matter if you are European, American, or Japanese: if you want a teddy bear, you go to the experts and few can match the know-how of Steiff, the company from Giengen, Germany, that created the bear doll with movable limbs that has become one of the longest toy staples in almost all cultures. And apparently, that's what Japan's National Soccer Team thought when it wanted its own mascot toy. And thus the Steiff Japan National Soccer Team Official Teddy Bear was born!
The Steiff Japan National Soccer Team Official Teddy Bear being, well, official, the bear is wearing a replica of the uniform of the team also known as Samurai Blue (this name is also printed on the back of the shirt). From the Japanese flag to Yatagarasu (the mythological three-legged crow that is the team's logo) and the digital camouflage pattern of the shirt, everything is made with Steiff's customary attention to detail. As for the button on the teddy's left ear, that's the mark of an authentic Steiff doll!
