Based on a classic Steiff design, this Lion hand puppet has an adorable expression! As other Steiff toys of the 1960-70s, this puppet was expertly handmade in Germany using the finest mohair plush. The gorgeous airbrushing work and his pronounced tipped mane give this character a gorgeous distressed look that everyone adores. He has plastic eyes, embroidered nose and mouth, and nylon whiskers. Leo's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for head movement. He has lost his Steiff IDs but is overall in good used condition. There is a bald spot on the top of his mane and a seam stitch that looks more like a factory defect than a repair. This sweet little puppet can't wait to join your vintage toy collection!
