According to company records, about 30,000 "Teddy Clown"
bears were produced overall. As such, examples in very good to
excellent condition are slightly more common on the secondary
market yet still generate tremendous interest and results at
auction. In March 2017, Bertoia Auctions sold a large "Teddy
Clown" with full provenance for almost $40,000.
Steiff debuted its next character cub, "Petsy, the Baby Bear,"
in 1928. This teddy bear appeared in the line through 1930.
"Petsy" has a distinctive, remarkably childlike appearance
and is universally adored by collectors. He was produced in
10 sizes from 15 to 50 cm. in brown-tipped mohair, and in 22
cm. in white or brass mohair. The white and brass versions
are extraordinarily rare; this author has seen only two or three
examples in 40 years. Most "Petsy" bears have a rose-colored,
hand-embroidered nose, mouth, and claws as well as blue and
black glass pupil eyes, although some examples with black and
blue cartoon style eyes have also been noted. "Petsy" is also
known for his wide, center-seamed face and large, posable, wirelined ears. This teddy bear pattern is also the basis for a number
of theme and variation products, including a puppet, purse,
musical bear, and a pull toy.
According to company records, Steiff produced 10,668
"Petsy" bears though 1930. They are considered somewhat rare,
although they do come up for auction with

June, 2014 this author had the pleasure of
handling a 28 cm. brown-tipped "Petsy"
with two IDs for James D. Julia Auctioneers,
which realized almost $18,000 at auction.
"Petsy" has a number of design features
that have always made collectors swoon.
Peer-reviewed scientific research
confirms that humans have a
natural instinct called "Baby
Schema," in which adults find
certain configurations of
body proportions on animals,
children, and some inanimate
objects irresistible. From an
evolutionary perspective,
this may reflect the need to
care for youngsters. These
"cute" features include a
wide, prominent forehead, a
proportionally large, round,
symmetrical head, big eyes
placed low on the face, soft
textures and a rounded body and
Prewar "Teddy Babies" are
