I was just browsing the Steiff website and noticed that they have a new, mini version of Sue Ann's Cappuccino bear listed as a new item. How cool is that? Also, it looks like they are continuing on with the coffee themed bear series as they have another bear listed named Latte Macchiato who is the same size as Cappuccino and also features extensive airbrushing!
Here are the item details:
Mohair Classic Mini Teddy Bear Cappuccino
Size: 16 cm
Mohair Classic Teddy Bear Latte Macchiato
Size: 33 cm
Mohair Classic Mini Teddy Bear Latte Macchiato
Size: 16 cm
They can all be viewed at : http://www.bear-world.com/acatalog/Stei … Bears.html
Just scroll down the page to view the bears...Enjoy!!!
Big surprise to me - wow. I hope that means the big Cappuccino is selling well. The "coffee" theme seems to be popular . . . I've even used it myself. But the 'original' Cappuccino (my actual design bear) was named "Dallas".
This is Mocha (darker bear) and Latte that I made 7 years ago. I called them the "Coffee Twins".
And this is Java from a year ago.
Jeremy, thank you so much for sharing that Steiff had made the mini Cappuccino - I appreciate the news! And thanks for your compliment, Daphne.
I don't think the mini does the original bear any justice, but is still a good looking bear. I imagine that Cappuccino must have sold VERY well for Steiff to introduce a mini version of the bear. It's also quite exciting that they are adding more editions to the "coffee collection". I can't wait to get my hands on Latte Macchiato...That bear looks cute!!!! Congrats again Sue Ann!!!
Well, thank you all so much - I appreciate your replies! Funny thing about coffee . . . I never drink the stuff - too, too bitter - but I love to smell its aroma (especially the flavored ones). And I really like the coffee "colors" as I'm crazy for warm, earth tones. Many thanks again. :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:
Very nice. I like the little touch of airbrushing. And I love the colors...very warm and earthy. You must be so proud.
Sue Ann, did you know they were going to make other versions?
Steiff still has possession of my Hayden's Cub as they said they may use it at some point. I think I'll keep my eyes peeled.
