Steiff has created some very sweet dog characters and Mopsy Pug as a hand puppet is certainly one of them. Its happy personality, with wide googly eyes and a cheerful felt tongue sticking out, is adorable! Similar to other Steiff toys of the time, Mopsy was finely handcrafted in Germany using the nicest mohair plush. It has a hand stitched nose and its glass eyes are an indication of an early model, likely made between 1960-67. This puppet retains the chest tag but no longer holds the Steiff trademark button in ear. Mopsy's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This puppet is guaranteed to bring you playful moments, whether you love Pug dogs or are a vintage toy fan!
