The world of Steiff creations is vast and no species are left behind. Along with the most known bears, cats and dogs the company also developed some very unusual characters. Hucky Raven hand puppet is a great example of a bird that is rarely seen as a plush toy. This puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany. According to its ID it was produced between 1962-67 and uses the nicest mohair plush. Its deep and lustrous quality is hard to capture in pictures. Hucky has an incredible presence with captivating googly eyes and two amusing flapping wings. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool). The lack of a finger tube is another design particularity of this puppet. Its head and felt beak are movable by placing your finger in its lower lip. The last picture uses a Steiff tag to show how it is intended to work. This playful little puppet is overall in good used condition but it shows wear. Hucky can't wait to join your vintage toy collection.
