Steiff Pincushion

You have probably heard of Steiff teddy bears, but you might not know that Margarete Steiff started by making a small elephant as a pincushion. The elephant soon caught on as a toy and it wasn’t long before she was making a range of toy animals. You can read more about her and her elephant pincushion here, there is also lots of information on the Steiff website.
