Steiff, the iconic plush toy company founded in Germany, is internationally renowned for its artistry, beauty, and lasting value. It began in 1880 with the seamstress Margarete Steiff, and was later expanded by the creativity of her nephew, Richard Steiff, who invented the world's first Teddy bear with movable limbs.
This exquisite Loopy Wolf hand puppet is a great example of Steiff's amazing craftsmanship and was lovingly made in Germany between 1968-78, with premium airbrushed mohair plush. But what makes this vintage toy so distinct is its eye-catching open mouth with prominent teeth and felt tongue sticking out. Its head is filled with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. Loopy is complete with all Steiff IDs. It is gently used yet it shows some slight signs of wear due to its age. This delightful hand puppet is ready to join your distinguished collection of Steiff items!
