Because I certainly don’t know everything about Steiff’s – Their values and such, I did a little research….
Who Knew Skittles Were Worth So Much? I didn’t
Set of Pre-Button Steiff Skittles Sold By Christie’s
£6,000 ($9,750.00 US)
My most favorite activity is learning about antiques and collectibles, and though I have been doing this Estate Sales and Antiques Business thing for a while now, it’s like almost everyday that I find myself surprised by what’s collectible, and how much it’s worth
These Are Pre-Button Stieff Skittles
Set Of Pre-Button Stieff Cat Skittles Sold By Noel Barrett
Date: 2004 ($8,000.00)
As usual it’s scarcity that adds dollars to the value of a collectibles…these Pre-Button Steiff Skittles are scarce, first because of their limited production, and because of how they were played with. I didn’t know what a Skittle was: It’s kinda like a bowling toy, you tossed a wooden ball toward these Skittles in much the same way you would roll a bowling ball towards bowling pins.
It’s a wonder that any of these in any condition survived.
Sometimes Steiff Skittles Hide In Atics

So as we do, us pickers, or collectors, now armed with better collecting knowledge, we will be on the look out for these. I know I will. I am thinking small regional auction houses or estate sales. How about you?
