Steiff introduces Toto for fall 2012. He is a companion piece to last year's Dorothy teddy bear. Like Dorothy, Toto is limited to 1,939 pieces. He is 4.3 inches and adheres to the Steiff standards of quality.
Lovers of the classic Hollywood film "The Wizard of Oz" will want to own Toto, Dorothy's beloved pet from the movie. Toto is hand crafted from finest Steiff-Schulte mohair and has been delicately airbrushed to add to his charm. Toto comes with a handmade wooden basket and blanket made of the same material as Dorothy's dress. His facial features are all hand stitched. Toto is officially licensed by Warner Brothers and is a genuine Oz collectible that should be part of every Steiff or Wizard of Oz collection.
In addition Hollywood collectors and cairn terrier enthusiasts should love him too!!
Dorothy was introduced last year but is still available. She is 11.4 inches.
First released in 1939, it is one of the most beloved films of all time. And now it's coming to life as a special Steiff bear, exclusively for North American and the United Kingdom. We proudly present to you "Dorothy, The Wizard of Oz Bear". A Teddy whose design is as classic as the film itself. You'll love the traditional Steiff profile, the beautiful cream mohair, and all the special features. Just like in the movie, Dorothy wears a charming blue-checked dress. On her paw pad, the title of the film is spelled out in Swarovski crystal elements - reminiscent of the famous ruby slippers! And naturally, Dorothy's music box plays "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
