Hopsi Squirrel hand puppet is a great example of a forest animal that Steiff turned into a playful yet realistic toy. This handsome puppet character was finely handcrafted in Germany circa 1960s and uses the nicest mohair plush. Different from other puppets developed during the same period, Hopsi is full bodied and has an amazing presence with large glass eyes, a bushy mohair tail and tiny felt hands. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. Little squirrel is overall in good condition but no longer carries Steiff's trademark "button in ear". Little Squirrel can't wait to join your vintage toy collection!
