Hermann Teddy Original Story

In 1907, Johann Hermann a father of six, who had been carving wooden toys and instruments from the remote German village of Neufang, decided to work with an alternative composition, leading into the world of Teddy Bears. His eldest son Berhard worked alongside him, until he married five years later, and left to run his own Teddy Bear empire. Bernhard formed Be-Ha (taken from his name) which later became Gebruder Hermann KG, which trades under ther name Hermann Teddy Original.

Hermann Teddy Original” is a distinguished brand with a long-standing tradition of creating exquisite teddy bears and plush animals. Established in 1912, Hermann Teddy Original is one of the oldest and most esteemed teddy bear manufacturers in the world, known for their exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Meanwhile, Johann had three of his other children working for him, at the now established Johann Hermann Toy Factory, and they were Max, Arthur and Adelheid. It is Max who opened his own Teddy Bear company in 1920 – Max Hermann, and when joined by his son, changed the name to Max Hermann & Sonn. After WWII and a move to Coburg, it became Hermann-Spielwaren GmbH, trading under the name Herman-Spielwaren.

Dear world of bears Thank you for coming through with my Jellycat Pebblet Honey! I’ve been trying to get her for a couple years, even wrote to Jellycat. I’ve ordered from a couple other companies who have not come through and your the only ones who did. I’m so grateful for that as Honey is just like my first real bunny I adopted when she was 6 weeks old. Thank you so much Philip
