BERG Monkey Hand Puppet ~ 1960-70s

BERG is an Austrian manufacturer established in the mid 40s. They created lovely stuffed animals and hand puppets with the slogan "Animals with Heart" and a distinctive red heart shaped chest pendant.

Here's an example of a Berg Monkey Hand Puppet made circa 1960-70s. Similar to other creations of the time, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Austria using the best materials. Monkey's large eyes and ears give it a vivid expression that is unique. Its body and hands are made from felt. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. This toy has been loved and has lost the heart tag, leaving a small hole on his felt chest. Also note that the felt on the front part of the body has thinned. Don't wait to bring Monkey home!

  • Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. Missing heart tag, that left a small hole on the chest. The felt on the front part of the body has thinned. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.
