Hatsune Miku – Steiff Teddy Bear
World-renowned plush maker Steiff is making a limited run of Hatsune Miku teddy bears, but those looking forward to twin-tails will have to settle for other details. The bear has Miku’s trademark teal coloration, tie and collar, her name on one paw, a silhouette of Miku on the other, and “01” embroidered onto the left shoulder.
The bear is made from a soft mohair, and has movable joints.
Only 1,500 will be made, but each one comes at a steep, but Steiff appropriate price US $322.00. Pre-orders will begin March 9, and can be placed from the Good Smile Company online shop (beginning March 9), at the Steiff shop in the New Chitose Airport, and the Steiff shop in Aoyama.
