The legacy of the Steinbach family dates back more than 700 years and they have been revered for creating some of the most prolific examples of architecture prior to creating wooden collectibles. Because of unrest in Europe in the 1300s, the Steinbach family was forced to use their architecture and woodworking skills to a different use and began creating hand carved, hand painted Nutcrackers, a tradition that still carries on today and is sure to carry on for many generations to come.
Steinbach Chubby Nutcrackers were originally called “Juniors” when they were introduced in 1992 to 1994, but somehow the Chubby distinction stuck and that is what they have been called since 1995. They are an average of 10.5 inches in height, which puts them somewhere between the Troll and Standard size Nutcrackers. Chubby series Nutcrackers also come in a variety of subjects just like all Steinbach collectible wooden Nutcrackers. While there are a large variety of Chubby wooden Nutcrackers to choose from, they can put into three general categories: traditional, themed and holiday.
