In July, there was a formal announcement about the 2012 Steiff Swarovski Cookie, which is a limited edition holiday teddy bear.

Steiff Swarovski 'Cookie' - 2012 Limited Edition of 1500 Bears in USA

Limited Edition in 2012, Swarovski Steiff Bear Cookie

Swarovski Steiff Cookie is a limited edition bear, available only in the USA.  This exclusive Steiff Cookie has a maximum production of 1500 units, that retail at $310 each.

Cookie the Holiday Bear sports a Swarovski Twinkling Gingerbread Man around her neck, so it seems probable that Swarovski collectors and Steiff collectors will show sufficient interest for this bear to be a sell-out, though I have no facts to support this thought.

The Steiff USA web site and stores in North America are accepting orders for this Swarovski teddy bear. Sunny-Bears.com is offering Steiff Cookie at a slightly lower price during the pre-order period.

Crystal Exchange America has a few retired Swarovski Steiff bears, including Steiff Bear Crystal, Steiff Bear Jewels, Steiff Bear Poinsettia, and Steiff Bear Sapphire if you are looking for an limited edition Steiff – Swarovski Teddy Bear.

Steiff Swarovski 'Cookie' - 2012 Limited Edition of 1500 Teddy Bears

Swarovski Steiff Bear Cookie – Limited Edition in 2012

In June, I wrote about some limited edition Swarovski – Steiff Bears that launched earlier in the year.  Now, there is official news about another limited edition teddy bear…the Swarovski Steiff Bear ‘Cookie’, the Holiday Bear.

The Steiff description states that this teddy bear, Swarovski Steiff Cookie, is made of mohair and alpaca.  Cookie’s necklace is the Swarovski Twinkling Gingerbread Man.  The Twinkling Gingerbread Man Ornament was introduced in 2011, and presently retails for $45 at the Swarovski online shoppe.  How fitting of the name, ‘Cookie’ the Holiday Bear, wearing a ‘gingerbread man cookie’ on her neck!

Steiff Bear Cookie is a Limited Edition Bear with a maximum production of 1500 units. The Steiff USA web site and stores in North America will be accepting orders for this Swarovski teddy bear very soon.  The suggested retail price on the Steiff Holiday Bear Cookie is $310.  Steiff Cookie may be at a slightly lower price at Sunny-Bears.com .

Several days ago, I wrote about a limited edition Swarovski – Steiff Bear that was a spring 2012 release.  There is also another spring release limited edition teddy bear…the Swarovski Steiff Bear Shelly.

Steiff Bear Shelly with a Swarovski Scallop Pendant, Limited Edition in 2012

Swarovski Steiff Bear Shelly, 2012 Limited Edition

Stieff’s description reveals that Swarovski Steiff Shelly white felted mohair teddy bear.  The bear brand indicates that Shelly is ready for a wonderful day at the beach.  At a glance, her pendant shell resembles the Swarovski Scallop in a topaz color, but at a zoomed in view, I don’t believe they are the same.  The Swarovski Scallop was the 2006 gift when SCS members initially joined the Swarovski club or when returning members renewed their SCS membership.  The scallop in 2006 was clear and went with the Swarovski Wonders of the Sea trilogy, which consisted of Swarovski Harmony in 2005, Swarovski Eternity in 2006, and Swarovski Community in 2007.

Steiff Bear Shelly is a Limited Edition Bear with a maximum production of 1500 units. The Steiff USA web site and stores in North America are accepting orders for this Swarovski teddy bear.  The suggested retail price on the bear is $240.  I found Swarovski Steiff Shelly in stock at a slightly lower price at Sunny-Bears.com .

Crystal Exchange America has a few retired Swarovski Steiff bears, including Steiff Bear Crystal, Steiff Bear Jewels, Steiff Bear Poinsettia, and Steiff Bear Sapphire if you are looking for an older one.

Steiff bear collectors and fanatics may be interested in a spring-release Steiff Bear decorated with sparkling Swarovski stones.

Steiff Diamant Bear, Limited Edition for 2012, Decorated with Swarovski Crystal Elements

Swarovski Steiff Diamond Bear, 2012 Limited Edition

This recent teddy bear is named Diamond (also known as Diamant Teddybär).  The bear features a cream-colored coat of silk material.  Diamond / Diamant wears a Swarovski gold-colored pendant with a Swarovski stone simulating a brilliant diamond.  The bear has paws encrusted with Swarovski crystal Elements stones that reflect a rainbow depending on the bear’s surroundings.

Steiff Diamond  is a limited edition bear.   There are only 2000 available.  Naturally, the Diamond Steiff Bear can be purchased from the Steiff USA site.

I noticed that the Teddy Bear company discusses a previous release Swarovski Steiff Sapphire in the promotion for Diamond / Diamant . Sapphire and the Diamond teddy bears do have their similarities with their paws decorated with Swarovski dust.  Both bears being named after gemstones, I’m wondering if we are likely to see a Swarovski Steiff Emerald?  Or perhaps a Swarovski Steiff Ruby?

Swarovski and Steiff have been releasing limited editions bears since 2004.  Some of the prior teddy bears include….:

  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Daniel – 2004
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Crystal – 2005
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Orian – 2006
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Jewels – 2007
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Poinsettia – 2007
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Flurrie – 2008
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Kringle – 2009
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Twinkle – 2010
  • Steiff Swarovski Bear Candy – 2011

Remember, Diamond is a Steiff / Swarovski Limited Edition piece, so don’t delay your purchase if this is a teddy bear that you want to add to your Steiff collection or Swarovski collection.  And if you are looking for an older bear, try Crystal Exchange America as they have a few retired Steiff bears.

With only 2000 available in 2011, the Steiff Sapphire Bear not going to be available for very long.  Steiff retailers told us that the limited edition Swarovski-decorated bear was quick to sell out this year.

The bear’s coat is a deep blue made of silk material.  The bear has paws encrusted with Swarovski crystal Elements stones that reflect a prism of colors accenting the sapphire blue color.

Sapphire also wears a choker around her neck made Swarovski Elements.  Naturally, the bear includes a white label with the famous Steiff button in the ear.  Every Steiff Sapphire bear includes a numbered certificate of authenticity and is packaged in a special Steiff gift box.

A number of other Steiff Swarovski bears have been produced in the past decade.  In particular, Swarovski Ornaments were used in the implementation of these  Swarovski Steiff bears:
