STEIFF Rabbit Hand Puppet ~ 1960s



Like all Steiff creations, this adorable vintage Rabbit hand puppet is to fall in love with. Its glass eyes and long ears give this character the endearing expression that only old toys do. Little Bunny uses the finest mohair plush and was expertly handcrafted in Germany circa 1960s. The airbrushing work, with dark and golden hues, is remarkable. Rabbit's nose and mouth are hand-stitched and its neck is adorned with a silk bow. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. This sweet little puppet is in good vintage condition and retains the ear button. It looks like it has been stored away for many years and the colors are great! Please note that the plush shows some pleats due to flat storage. Certainly a great addition to your vintage toy collection!

Curiosity: The character "Mr. Bunny Rabbit" from the American TV Series "Captain Kangaroo" was a Steiff Rabbit Hand Puppet similar to this one!

  • Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. The plush shows some pleats due to flat storage. Nice colors. With ear button but missing other IDs. The bow is flattened. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.
