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 Cat Hand Puppet from the "Bi-Ba-Bo" series was finely handcrafted in Germany during the 50s. Its baby-like expression, with glass eyes and hand stitched nose, is adorable. Its body is made of mohair plush. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This sweet little puppet has been loved and shows play wear, gained during its approximately 70 years of life. It will certainly be a welcome addition to any vintage puppet collection!
