- The most expensive antique teddy bear comes from the Steiff company. It was made in 1926 and was auctioned at Christie's in London in 2002 for 156'240 Euro.
- The biggest teddy bear in the world comes from the company «Martin Bären». It measures 5.40 meters, weighs about 500 kilos and can be seen at the German Teddy Bear Museum in Sonneberg.
- The world's smallest teddy also comes from Germany. It measures only 5 millimeters, but is still fully mobile. «Mini the Pooh» (that's its name) is in the museum «A World in Miniature» in Carlisle (England).
- And let's not forget Teddy «Babbage». In 2014, he jumped from a height of 39,000 meters, breaking the record of the extreme sportsman, the Austrian Felix Baumgartner. Babbage had made the ascent using a hydrogen balloon. As soon as the cutting mechanism separated the teddy bear from the balloon, Babbage came back down to earth.
