The first-of-its-kind Steiff Teddy bear that can crack nuts! Everyone is familiar with the unmistakeable Steiff Teddy bears and all the fans of wooden, Christmas handicrafts from Germany are equally familiar with the classic nutcrackers from the Erz Mountains that are just as nice to look at as they are practical.Now these two hallmarks have been combined into an unmistakeable one-of-a-kind: The Steiff Teddy bear Nutcracker. This charmingly-bearish fellow is made of curly, white mohair and makes a very stately impression in his elegant uniform. He is wearing a smart, black hat with gold decoration as well as an elaborately-made wool felt jacket that is adorned with shiny gold buttons, cufflinks and epaulette. His jacket is fastened with a genuine leather belt with a gold buckle and the jacket can be opened at the button fastening thanks to a Velcro closure. Then you can place a nut in the screw-action nutcracker inside the bears chest.
This screw-action mechanism, specially made for Steiff, was made in the Erz Mountains as part of the traditional handicrafts made of local beech wood. When the nut is placed in the nutcracker, simply turn the head to the right and the nut is cracked.His very dapper appearance and his extraordinarily practical abilities make this Steiff Nutcracker Teddy bear in a limited edition of 3,000 pieces world wide a wonderful companion that you will not want to miss as part of your Christmas-time decoration.
