The stuff that Teddy dreams are made of will be offered by several accessory companies and mohair merchants. Just the thing for those who have what it takes to sew and want to stock up for the winter with new cotter pins, fabrics, yarns & Co.. Of course, the Teddy doctor has again his firm place at the fair: A first address to patch up small wounds and do repairs on the spot. As part of a unique and special Teddy exhibition precious rarities from between 1929 and 1957 will be shown and will melt the hearts of the Bear fans. Among them are, for example, the Steiff Teddy Baby Record or rare bears made from rayon fabric, which were produced during the war years. Also very rare specimens from plush wool can be admired at the Congress Center South. At the Teddy estimation table of Daniel Hentschel visitors can get an appraisal of their rarities. In addition, these can also be sold and bought. „Make your own Teddy“ and interesting felting techniques can be learned in two workshops for our visitors!
