For over 100 years, Schuco has created a diverse selection of quality toys that are innovative and ingenious. Although the company specializes in manufacturing toy vehicles, it also has a history of making wonderful wind-up mechanical toys as well as stuffed animals and puppets. It is no surprise that these toys are adored and highly sought after by collectors.
This rare Schuco Mr Punch Hand Puppet could also take the role of a Christmas Elf. He was finely handcrafted in Germany circa 50s (Bi-Ba-Bo Series) and has an adorable old fashioned expression with cute twine hair. His endearing look comes from his deep glass eyes. His face is made of felt and he wears a double colored felt body with a pom-pom. His head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This puppet is well loved and shows wear! His ears are missing, but the hair hides them away. This sweet little puppet will certainly be a welcome addition to any vintage puppet collection!
