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.
Bring the beloved Steiff Teddy bear to life with this delightful hand puppet! It's hard not to fall for this iconic character's tender expression with glass eyes. He has a hand-stitched nose, an open felt mouth and two big paws that are ready for a hug. Expertly handcrafted in Germany during the 1960s using the finest mohair plush, Teddy's head is filled with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. He is missing his ear button and the other Steiff tags. Everyone's favorite Teddy Bear can't wait to make a new home in your precious vintage toy collection!
