Old teddies and soft toys set to make a 1million!

Can Leah get any money for her cuddly toy dog, Buster?

A giant collection of teddy bears and soft toys are going to be sold, and they're set to make over a million pounds!

The huge stash of 1,300 toys were all made by a famous German toy company called Steiff.

One of the rarest items is a red and blue teddy bear from 1925. It was a one-off made by the toy company and could fetch up to £80,000!

The teddy and other toys are going to be auctioned in London this Wednesday.
