STEIFF Leo Lion Hand Puppet ~ ALL IDs 1968-78



Steiff, the legendary German plush toy company, is famous for its artistry, beauty and lasting quality. The company produced incredible stuffed animals of every type, including super fun hand puppets, like this classic design of Leo the Lion. Similar to other vintage Steiff toys, this puppet has the most sweet expression and was expertly handmade in Germany between 1968-78 using the finest mohair plush. The gorgeous airbrushing work and his pronounced tipped mane give this character a nice distressed look that everyone adores. This puppet seems gently used and still retains the trademark button in ear. The other Steiff IDs are missing. He has an 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. Don't miss this opportunity to add this handsome character to your vintage toy collection!
