"Teddy for President!" When the historic original of our 1906 replica first saw the light of day, fever for Steiff bears had long since broken out in the USA. Up and down the country, people were demonstrating their love of these cuddly playmates - as well as deep affection for their beloved President "Teddy" Roosevelt. The original Mr Vanilla was also auctioned as part of a famous American collection of bears. However, this bear was a little blonder. If anything, maybe it is the patina of 108 years that gives our Mr Vanilla his gentle vanilla colour? Whatever the case may be, this 35 cm tall bear in the finest mohair with shoe button eyes, patinated steel "underscored button" and wood wool stuffing is a credit to the President. Mr Vanilla is running: for President of your collection!
