“Chopper” from ONE PIECE and “Steiff,” a long-established teddy bear brand collaborate together!
13.September.2017 | FASHION
The official shopping site of Bandai called “Premium Bandai” has started accepting reservations for “Steiff×TONYTONY CHOPPER,” a collaborative product of “Steiff,” a long-established teddy brand in Germany and “TONYTONY CHOPPER,” the deer doctor who appears in the animation “ONE PIECE” from the 7th of September (13:00), 2017 (Thurs). The quantity of this stuffed toy is limited (1,500) and each product has its serial number on the left ear.
The brown-colored teddy bear wears the costume of TONYTONY CHOPPER. The blue nose, the big, pink silk hat and the shorts of CHOPPER are re-created precisely.
The gorgeous teddy bear is made with mohair and has a smooth texture. The left ear has a marking which proves the product is a “Steiff” called “Button In Ear” and there is a tag with a red serial number printed showing that the quantity of the product is limited (1,500).
On the backside of the left foot there is the inscription, “CHOPPER” and an embroidered cherry-blossom which reminds us the famous scene where CHOPPER decides to leave on a trip as a member of “Mugiwara no Ichimi” (the pirates of straw hats).
Don’t miss this chance to get your very own quantity-limited teddy bear!
Teddy bear, the icon of cuteness has been transformed into a Samurai.
The previous “Boy’s May festival teddy bear” sold out quickly since it was a limited quantity product. This year, teddy bear will become a “Samurai” wearing red body-armor.
As with the previous teddy bear, this teddy bear is the collaborative work of “Ningyo no Kyogetsu” which purses the beauty of forms and Steiff which is a German company. The teddy bear which wears Iyozane Yoroi (Japanese traditional body-armor) and has a cute and pure face is a symbolic Japan/Germany collaborative work.
A “kabuto”stand is also a part of this set so one can display the “samurai teddy bear” very easily. Also as an option, one can purchase a glass case made out of Japanese lacquered acacia wood, to display the samurai teddy bear in.
Let’s check out this unique Japanese teddy bear which is both cute and cool at the same time.
