Heinrich Silberstein began manufacturing jointed teddy bears in 1906. Steiff tried to take legal action against the company because they claimed a bear with movable limbs was their own invention. However, many other manufacturers also begain producing this type of teddy bear and the Steiff monopoly was broken
