We’re delighted to introduce Steiff’s latest collection for babies! Steiff’s Little Circus range includes cute characters, made from unusual and pretty fabrics, that both babies and parents will really fall in love with.
The materials used to make Steiff Little Circus Baby toys are not confined to the usual Steiff plush. Many of the animals are made solely from 100% cotton, which is certified by the Oeko-Tex 100 standard as safe for babies from newborn. This safety certification guarantees that the materials do not contain chemicals that may be harmful to babies. As we all know, babies’ toys spend lots of time in their mouths so it’s reassuring to know there are no nasties for them to chew on. Steiff’s famous button in ear and yellow label are also safe for babies.
A brand new material that features in this collection is viscose made from bamboo, which can be found in the bath gift set and changing mat set in a 60/40 combination with cotton. This fabric is relatively new and very environmentally friendly. Bamboo grows quickly and in dense plantations; it requires less water than trees and produces 30% more oxygen. Also, growing bamboo does not require chemical fertilisers or pesticides, so the resulting fabric is not only better for the environment, but also safer for adults and children alike. Bamboo fabric is also silky soft and very absorbent - a super-fabric we hope to see more of!
In our Steiff Little Circus range you will meet an elephant, a turtle and teddy bears in both blue and pink. The patterned fabrics are a great look that will complement any nursery. All of the toys and gifts are machine washable, so the toys can be well-loved and washed over and over again.
Our particular favourites include Steiff’s Little Circus Blue Teddy Bear - a lovely bear with a plush tummy and patterned cotton limbs and SUCH a sweet face! We also particularly like the Little Circus Elephant Gift Set which includes a squishy elephant rattle and a soft bib made from bamboo and cotton - the set arrives packed into a smart Steiff suitcase and will make a very special gift for a new baby or parents-to-be.
