A KID'S SAFARI

A trip to toyland this Christmas is like a kid's safari into a jungle where lions and tigers are as big as life and also almost as real. Not since Teddy Roosevelt made Teddy bears a favorite American toy, by using them as decorations at a White House party, have stuffed animals been so popular. Steiff, the West German firm that made the first Teddy, has doubled its shipments this year and price (the largest tiger is $200) seems to be no object. The menagerie also comes in miniature, and 450 different sizes and varieties of animals are spending their holidays at F.A.O. Schwartz, Saks Fifth Avenue and other fine stores.
