Possy Squirrel hand puppet is a great example of a forest animal that Steiff turned into a playful yet realistic toy. And this puppet is even more special because it is a rare early 317 model, made between 1957-58. Its sweet and delicate expression with glass eyes is simply adorable. Like other toys of the time, this hand puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany using the nicest mohair plush. Due to its short production timeline Possy is somewhat rare! Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. Little squirrel is in very good condition and retains the Steiff button in ear and yellow flag. It is just missing the chest tag. Don't wait! Welcome this rare hand puppet to your vintage toy collection today!
