Based on a classic Steiff design, this Lion hand puppet has a sweet expression that will steal your heart. As other Steiff toys of the time, this puppet was expertly handmade in Germany using the finest mohair plush. The nice airbrushing work and his pronounced tipped mane give this character an amazing distressed look that everyone adores. He has plastic eyes, an embroidered nose and mouth, and nylon whiskers. Leo's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for head movement. Whether you are a puppet fan or a Steiff collector, this sweet little puppet will be a great addition to your vintage toy collection!
