Join Steiff in congratulating Rupert on reaching his 100th birthday with this enchanting musical Rupert whose heartbeat plays "Rupert", that famous classic song. The Express turned to Mary Tourtel who created the little bear - "Little Bear Lost". He by far exceeded everyone's expectations and captured the imagination and affection of the nation. Rupert celebrates 100 years of heritage. Mary Tourtel flung Rupert into a fairy-tale world of magic spells, ogres, dragons and wolves in scenes of true wonderland. So magical and marvellous were his tales that his image became known worldwide from Abu Dhabi to Zambia and beyond! He is a childhood favourite of so many and now a Steiff favourite! Steiff have truly excelled in designing a triumphant interpretation of a magical little bear, no longer lost.
