The iconic Steiff Jocko Chimpanzee is adored by fans all over the world. It was produced since the early years of the company and its amazing expression, with pocket eyes, is as captivating as realistic. This unmistakable character is even more attractive when it appears as a hand puppet! This toy is also special because it is an early model 317 and retains all IDs. Note the chest tag has Jocko written in red letters and the bear's head is rounded, an indication that this toy was produced from 1949-53. Steiff uses the finest mohair plush and it is not a surprise that Jocko looks very nice even after so many decades of life. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. It is overall in good condition but the yellow tag is faded and the chest tag shows wear. Without a doubt this sweet old puppet will be a joyful addition to your vintage toy collection!
