Hopsi Squirrel hand puppet is a great example of a forest animal that Steiff turned into a playful yet realistic toy. This handsome puppet character was finely handcrafted in Germany between 1968-78 and uses the nicest mohair plush. Different from other puppets developed during the same period, Hopsi is full bodied and has an amazing presence with large glass eyes, a bushy mohair tail and tiny felt hands. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. Little squirrel is overall in good condition but it has a light stain in the front side of its body. It retains the Steiff button in ear and ear tag #6900/18. It will certainly be a nice addition to any vintage toy collection.
- Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. With button and ear tag #6900/18. Overall in good condition but it has a light stain in the front side of the body. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.
