Karl Lagerfeld recently collaborated with fine teddy bear creator Steiff on a designer cat plush toy that resembles the designer's precious Choupette cat, which has become famous within the world of fashion.
The limited-edition Steiff Choupette designer stuffed toy retails for over $500, and is sold with playful accessories such as a magnetic mouse and a fashion-forward carry-all. Each collectible toy also comes with a certificate authenticity, which provides a number that matches the unique ear tag on the Steiff Choupette. Only 2,000 of the collectible cat plush toys are being sold.
There are now a number of action figures, stuffed animals and plush toys that are specifically being created as luxurious collector's items for affluent adults.
