Kids need not worry about Joggi's spines. Little Joggi hedgehog is very friendly and cuddly. His coat is made of soft woven fur and his paws of high quality felt. Also notice the lavish airbrush details in Joggi's fluffy fur and face. The hedgehog practically measures 10 cm, which means he's small enough to put in a school or kindegarten bag. If Joggi does hide away under the earth, he can simply be machine washed at 30°C. The Steiff company motto is "Only the best is good enough for children". Steiff products are subject to meticulous testing and inspection. They are required to be highly flame resistant and, among other things, smaller pieces such as eyes must be able to resist considerable tension, wear and tear, etc. Margarete Steiff holds the best-documented claim to have made the world's first teddy bears, and since that time (1902) no other company have rivalled them for consistent quality or range. Whenever a bear has fetched a world record at auction, it has always been a Steiff!
