HISTORY OF STEIFF

German toymaker Margarete Steiff (July 24, 1847 - May 9, 1909), born in Giengen, started creating toy stuffed animals in 1880 in the town of Giengen an der Brenz, Germany. From November 1904 onwards, every Steiff animal leaving the factory had a "Button in Ear". The original button was made of metal, embossed with an elephant. Franz Steiff, another of Margarete's nephews, came up with this idea to distinguish Steiff articles from imitation products. The elephant was later replaced by the name "Steiff". This ingenious idea marked the launch of a world-famous trademark: Steiff "Button in Ear".

As the years pass, the company Margarete Steiff GmbH made its way into the annals of toy history. Steiff products set new accents in the toy market over and over again.
