Steiff bulldog

Our first Steiff bulldog

So Steiff is a German toy company. The lady whom invented this toy was called Margarete Steiff and she began by starting off making her wares as elephants that could be found in a magazine and this were sold as pin cushions

It was around the time that Margarete noticed Children started playing with them that her brother fritz joined the company and with a new idea in mind Margarete Steiff decided to turn them into stuffed toys,mainly animals for children to play with

Attention to detail is so true for Steiff products

It was not till A nephew joined the company a few years later in 1897 and put forward the idea for the steiff teddy bear, this was agreed and the first proper Steiff bears were made and came along in 1902.
Amazingly 974,000 bears were made by 1907 alone and sold to German families with a devision set up for export making Steiff making them world known right up till today, Collectibulldogs is humbled to have an original and very glad too

As quoted by Margrete Steiff

Wiggles with churchie


Now when I first started I never thought I’d be making friends with churchie the bulldog from the insurance company and due to this bulldog bond they are sending a surprise which I’m guessing will be their latest churchie plush toy but who knows

I’m going to try my dang hardest to see if they would be interested in any kind of indorsement or swap I doubt they would want us showing up on their front page but for a hidden link exchange to improve our DA I sure would put them on my front page. Happy collecting folks and more blog articles coming soon.
