Old Bears Everywhere

Hermann Teddy Original

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. Fresh from having been crafting, high quality Teddy Bears, along side his father, Johann Herman for his company Johann Hermann - Toy Factory, Bernhard (Johanns eldest son), opened the doors to his own company. It was 1912 at Sonneberg, when he too began producing, high quality Teddy Bears and Dolls. He used the initials from his name Be-Ha, which later became Gebruder Hermann KG, known today as Hermann Teddy Original.
