    It all depends on which bear you buy. Some are worth more than others and obviously, certain bears are more collectable. One given to stores for promotional purposes only will be worth more than one bought from regular stock, for example, so you need to choose the right bear.

    Just keep in mind that nothing is a 100% safe investment. It's hard to predict the tastes of tomorrow's consumers. Steiff are usually a safe bet, mind you.

    Fingers crossed you're onto a winner!

    Antique collecting is known as best place to put your money, There is growing support worldwide for antiques as an alternate investment option. Many believe it is not as risky as investing in the stock market and antiques usually maintain their value and appreciate with time. The first thing you want to do if you have an antique teddy bear is assess its condition. What color is it? is it light or white or brown or black? The general rule is the lighter it is, the more it is worth.

    What kind of joints does it have if it has joints at all? Some bears are called jointed because the arms and legs move. Is there any missing pieces? Eyes and mouths and even arms and legs are sometimes missing. Do you have the part that fell off? If so keep it handy as it can be repaired.

    What type of eyes does your antique teddy bear have? Glass or shoe button eyes or sewn on eyes? This will be relevant to the age of the bear. Does the bear have a button or the remains of one in its left ear? If it does have a button it may be a Steiff teddy bear and this is very good for a high appraisal.

    You can also find Price and Value Guides for Collectibles and Antiques Online, When buying a teddy bear, buying the best means a Steiff teddy bear. It's been that way for over 100 years and it will continue to go up in value.
