The teddy bear factory in the German city of Coburg presented a collectible product worth 189 euros on the occasion of the departure of Angela Merkel from the post of German Chancellor. This is reported by the publication Welt.
The oldest factory quite often creates toys dedicated to famous personalities. Earlier, bears of former U.S. Presidents Barack Obama, Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, and one of the German Chancellors Helmut Schmidt and Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain appeared.
The director of the factory, Martin Herman, explained that the toys are not created for children but as art objects. According to him, a total of 500 units of bears will be produced, and one of them will reach Frau Merkel herself.
In mid-September, the sale of sweets in the form of Chancellor Merkel’s head started in Germany. It is expected that about 500 such candies will be produced in total.
