Based on a classic Steiff design, this Lion hand puppet has an irresistible baby-like expression that will melt your heart. 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 an amazing distressed look that everyone adores. His glass eyes are are very expressive and he's got an embroidered nose and mouth, and nylon whiskers. Leo's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for head movement. This sweet little puppet will certainly be a great addition to any vintage toy collection!
