Along with the most known Teddy Bears, Cats and Dogs, Steiff also created some other very interesting characters. Hopsi Squirrel hand puppet is a great example of a forest animal that the company turned into a handsome and playful toy. This puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany between 1962-78 and uses the nicest mohair plush. Different from other puppets developed during the same period, Hopsi is full bodied and has an amazing look with expressive glass eyes and a bushy mohair tail. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. Little squirrel has been loved and shows some spots here and there. It will certainly be a welcome addition to any vintage toy collection.
