Here comes a famous and cute set, a sweet Kathe Kruse doll named Fritzl (short for Frederick) and his best friend forever, large brown sitting mohair bear named Hein(short for Heinrich), made by Steiff in 1996 in limited edition of 2500 pc. only!
Kathe Kruse boy Fitzl has his original tag and is a model designed by Hanne Kruse, with a soft cloth body with bendable metal skeleton inside and a synthetic head, the face carefully hand painted, and a human hair wig. All clothes are original! Kruse Fritzl measures 32 cm / 12 5/8 inches.
Bear has his large Steiff button and white label, he came out without the usual paper chest tag. This bear is built to sit. The silk bow was added by me, originally Hein came without a bow.
Vintage Steiff bear has jointed arms and head, he is very heavy and measures 43 cm / 17 inches sitting, measured over all he is 74 cm / 29 inches.
Large vintage Steiff teddy bear is made of curly brown mohair, with inset light beige mohair muzzle and felt pads on his hands and feet. Nose and smiling mouth are embroidered, safety eyes made of plastics.
The old Steiff bear and his doll friend are in mint condition!

There is a story coming with the two of them; you may observe that the serial number of Hein, the bear is 1770 and Fritzl, the doll has 1341 on his right foot. So, this set is not quite as it was originally intended to be. We found the bear some time ago, alone, and rather sad. Since in our household there is no shortage of dolls and bears and all sorts of creatures to play with, we adopted him and tried our absolute best to cheer him up. Hein smiled, but we always felt that he missed his little doll boy. So, when we found a lonely Fritzl doll we instantly knew that we had to get him home. And you would not belief the joy when we united the two of them! Hein who had lost his doll and Fritzl who was lonely without his bear are finally together again! Can you see them smile?
They do not care for their serial numbers, it is not important to them, and we hope you see it the same way!
