STEIFF Leo Lion Hand Puppet ~ 1960s



Based on a classic Steiff design, this Lion hand puppet has an adorable expression! As other Steiff toys of the 1960s, 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 retains the metal button and is overall in good used condition. This sweet little puppet will certainly be a great addition to any vintage toy collection!
