Hardly any other bear has ever brought so much spontaneious enthusiasm to little as well as big animal lovers as the panda. His typically patterned, black and white fur is always a feast for the eyes.The love story between man a panda began in 1938 when the first bears fascniated visitors in English and American zoos. The cute and furry fellow has also made a lasting impression at Steiff as well. He was already produced as a sample animal in 1938 and then as a registered design. And now the Steiff panda is celebrating his big comeback in every aspect as an imnpressive, beautifully crafted, classic pull-toy replica on cast iron wheels. The hearty panda with the cuddly soft fur made of finest mohair, firm stuffing made of wood shavings, glass eyes and his impressive pull-string voice is another wonderful piece in the Steiff pull-toy animal series that found its way to the court of King Wilhelm II in 1911. The panda on wheels proudly "bears" the underscored "Button in Ear" made of patinated steel.
