The second bear in Steiff’s music series is a tribute to the ultimate performer Elton John!
Born Reginald Dwight in 1947, the Elton John Teddy bear pays homage to the legendary British musician, Elton John, and celebrates his iconic album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Steiff artisans have included parts of the beautiful 1973 album cover artwork as details on his footpads.
They also mirrored the popular musician’s jacket from the cover; the jacket is made of mohair as part of his body.
Just like on the cover illustration, his name “Elton John” is embroidered on the back of his jacket.
Wearing exclusive sunglasses from the Elton John Eyewear collection, including logo and branding, this Teddy is the perfect accolade to the celebrated performer.
Steiff’s Elton John Teddy bear is a real star in any collection!
As a special feature of the Steiff ROCKS! collection, the artisans at Steiff have designed a custom box for the Elton John Teddy bear incorporating distinctive graphics from the album.
Elton John is crafted from the finest Schulte mohair.
He bears the iconic Steiff gold-plated button-in-ear.
