Phantom of the Opera by Steiff (EAN 037184)

Last night we received in our shipment from Steiff which included the incredible Phantom of the Opera (EAN 037184). These were ordered months ago, and we were somewhat disappointed that they did not arrive in time for Christmas ordering, but then again, good things come to those who wait, right?

This wonderful brown mohair teddy bear comes from a limited edition of 2000 pieces worldwide. His nose and bear claws are embroidered by hand, and he has a mask and a rose embroidered on his black velvet cape.

As Steiff says, "there is a secret hidden deep down inside of him". If you talk to this Teddy Bear he will play you one of seven emotional tunes from the Phantom of the Opera musical and you can actually choose which tune you would like to hear. In his tummy, he has an exclusively developed voice-controlled music box. You can even adjust the volume by your voice also. This teddy bear, of course, understands both English and German.
