Disney Goofy

Good-natured but scatterbrained, Disney's cartoon character Goofy is well loved the world over! Goofy first appeared, somewhat disguised, as a member of the audience in Mickey’s Revue (1932). Goofy was distinguished from those around him not so much by his languid appearance but his raucous laugh. That laugh created such an impression on Walt Disney that the character was soon featured in other cartoons. Before long, Goofy was part of the gang that included Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Clarabelle Cow, and Horace Horsecollar. There were 49 Goofy cartoons, but he also appeared in many cartoons with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, as well as more recent television series and videos. He is best known for his series of “How to" cartoons, where the audience laughed at his bumbled explanations and antics. Well, who wouldn’t laugh, "Gawrsh" everyone knows and loves Goofy!

Disney Minnie Mouse 1932

Minnie Mouse has long been Mickey Mouse’s sweetheart. They were introduced to audiences in their debut on November 18, 1928 in the short film Steamboat Willie. And for just as long, Mickey’s rival Pete has been trying to win the hand of the self-confident Minnie. But no luck there... The two are just as inseparable today as they were in 1928, when Mickey won Minnie over.

Wile E. Coyote

Behind every good Road Runner is…well, a coyote…Wile E. Coyote, to be specific. The creators originally intended the cartoons to be spoofs of other cartoons; instead they became successes in their own right. Jones considered many alternatives before deciding on the coyote and roadrunner characters. Jones as a child had read Mark Twain’s book, “Roughing It,” which contained an entire chapter on jackrabbits and coyotes (ergo, Wile E. Coyote). In “Operation:Rabbit,” the coyote is featured with a new adversary - Bugs Bunny. This was one of the few appearances in which Wile E. speaks, alas, to no avail. Bugs still manages to elude the persistent coyote. Legend has it that Jones was motivated to continue the series after receiving a letter from a Naval Air Force captain stating that his flight training pilots were calling “Beep! Beep!” to each other during maneuvers. Road Runner continued to be Wile E. Coyote’s target in the majority of his remaining cartoons. Wile E. persists in pursuing Road Runner even after his efforts have been thwarted time and time again.

Road Runner

Animation director Chuck Jones and writer Michael Maltese sifted through many alternatives before arriving at the Road Runner character, who would be chased by coyote. The prevalence of roadrunners in southern California provided impetus to the creation of a cartoon about the funny little birds called road runners. Road runners can run about 21 or 22 miles an hour. “They spread their little stubby wings and shoot up to the top of a big swirl of cactus and vibrate to a stop,” Chuck Jones recounted. “I always thought they were funny- funny by the way they move, not by what they look like.” Enter the Coyote, who is always hungry, and the chase is on. Wile E. Coyote tries every means he has to trap the Road Runner. Despite Wile E’s determined tinkerings, Road Runner always manages to outmaneuver him Whenever the chase gets close, Road Runner delivers a well-timed “Beep! Beep!” unfurls his little tongue, steps up the power and shoots away.

Lily Springtime Bunny

Well hello there – look who has just hopped in for a visit!

Her light brown mohair coat is enhanced with fine velvet material in the ears complete with a matching organza bow in antique pink. Lily Springtime Bunny is a particularly endearing creation – unusual for the time of year and sure to still be in her element when Easter comes around in a few months’ time.

Teddy Bear Replica 1906 ***waiting list***

The Teddy bear replica 1906 looks back to the glorious Steiff bear years. 1906 was the year in which “Bärle” was given the name “Teddy bear”, after US president Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt. The following year was the greatest bear year of them all. Made of finest mohair, the 50 cm replica aims to recreate and celebrate the highly successful bear of his day, while also conveying the passage of time. Which means that the years can be seen to have left their mark on our furry friend, particularly in his joints, paw pads. So much so that you would swear that the bear had been sitting there all along, watching the years go by. It also looks as if he has quite a few miles under his belt.

Dicky Bear Replica 1930 - with squeaker ***waiting list***

Teddy Baby Dicky was a star between 1930 and 1937. People just loved his colourful paw pads and his ever-smiling face. Several replicas have already been made of this very special bear, the first issued in 1985, with further variants following in 1992. This year sees 1930s Dicky making a reappearance – wholly authentic, lovingly recreated based on a historic pattern. As well as two-tone paw pads, he has elaborate airbrush shadowing all over his body and a squeaker. Just look at his friendly face and maybe you will find room in your collection for this revisited classic.

Willy Teddy Bear

Towards the end of the long summer, Willy Teddy bear has been eating enough food to sustain him through his winter rest. Now he is tired – his eyes are small and his body and legs have become heavy. He is looking forward to having a long sleep in his cosy cave among the fern, moss and lichens. With Willy Teddy bear, Steiff marks the autumn with a hibernating bear for collectors: with steel granulate in his body, arms and legs, a loosely jointed head and a checked scarf. So if you are planning on a quiet, cosy winter, you will find him an ideal companion. Of course, bears never go into a really deep sleep when hibernating during the winter, so Willy is always ready for an adventure.
