There's more to the Steiff Red Kimono Teddy Bear than meets the eye, and this is saying something because the red kimono made by doll-maker Jukei is remarkably beautiful. The particular design, though, has a unique meaning: it's decorated with a ball pattern called mari (from a very old game called kemari) and symbolizes things going smoothly and harmonically. In other words, you can think of this 24 cm (9.4") mohair teddy as a good luck charm.
But you would still be missing something: the Steiff Red Kimono Teddy Bear comes from the OG of teddy-bear makers, Steiff, which has been making them since 1880. Yes, there's almost 1.5 centuries of plush toy know-how behind this adorable little teddy bear that lets you enjoy the pinnacle of both Japanese and German quality!
