We were absolutely delighted that after years of waiting we had Limited Editions of Rupert Bear and friends by Steiff of Germany — The world famous and most prestigious bear manufacturer. The edition sizes did vary. From 3000 for the white Rupert, to 1500 for Edward Trunk and Algy pug and 1973 for the brown Rupert that was launched in July 2008 and 1500 for Podgy Pig launched April 2009. These editions were and still are superb in every respect and are fantastic for Rupert or Steiff collectors alike. The attention to detail is second to none with these editions and they have already increased in value. The last issue, in this collection, was Bill Badger as detailed below. White Rupert, Bill Badger and Podgy Pig have all sold out here. Those that are now offered for sale are editions we have bought back in from Collectors wishing to sell them on. We took extra stock to extend the availability of the lines, when they were in production, of Brown Rupert, Algy Pug and Edward Trunk. A small handful of these are to be found in the Special Offer section, for a limited time only. So grab a bargain whilst you still can!
We saw the first four plush Rupert and other character bears released only just in time for Christmas 2008. Now no longer being produced by Steiff, stock is very low on all counts.
Finally, we had a Rupert Christmas Ornament, that was released in November 2008 and another Christmas ornament for 2010. Again stock is limited on these lines.
Sadly Margarete Steiff have come to the end of producing Rupert. Hopefully in the future they will return and make another special Rupert bear for us. Fingers crossed!
