Steiff Kinder have arrived, and they are......

absolutely Fabulous.

Sophie and Lukas
Limited Edition 500
Height 17 inches tall.

Collectors of STEIFF and R. JOHN WRIGHT have been given a special treat this year with the production of an important series of dolls designed in conjunction with both companies:


As many collectors know, the products of the legendary Steiff company provided the earliest inspiration for R. John Wright creations. Now, 25 years after the first R. John Wright children dolls appeared, the story has come full circle with an exciting new collection of Steiff children dolls combining the best of the old and the new!

The Premiere Series will consist of the four children dolls shown above.
Measuring approximately 17" tall, fully jointed and made entirely of felt, the dolls feature molded faces sculpted by R. John Wright to evoke the early child dolls produced by the Margarete Steiff Toy Factory in the early 1900's. With hand painted features, inset glass eyes, and mohair wigs, the dolls are dressed in detailed clothing and accessories made of the finest materials in designs reflective of their German heritage .

The Steiff Kinder will be produced by R. John Wright Dolls in a numbered limited edition of 500 pieces each.
The first two dolls in the series, "Lukas" and "Sophie", will be released this summer.
The second two dolls, "Mathias" and "Katharina", are scheduled for release later in the year.

As a guarantee of authenticity, each will feature the trademark Steiff button in ear as well as the customary brass 'RJW' button.

The Steiff Kinder will come beautifully boxed with accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.

Matched number sets will be offered subject to availability.
