Founded in 1925, KERSA is Europe's leading hand puppet maker. Crafting puppets has been a family tradition over four generations and the company is still in production today. KERSA stands for "Kreative Erzeugnisse Realisiert im Spielwaren Atelier", a German phrase that conveys their main vision: to create products in an artistic manner while promoting the children's imagination.
This Dog Hand Puppet is an example of Kersa's amazing craftsmanship and was made in Mindelheim, Germany, circa 1980s. Its expression with large eyes and plastic nose is adorable. The oversized snap-style felt mouth is very fun to play with. To allow manipulation, the head is hollow and there is a squeaker (no longer working!) placed on the top part of the mouth. Its body is made from synthetic plush. This puppet comes from a new "old stock" collection and is in very good condition with Kersa tag. Little Dog can't wait to join your vintage toy collection!
