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. Bunny uses the finest mohair plush and was expertly handcrafted in Germany between 1959-67. It retains all IDs. Despite the fading and play wear, the wonderful airbrushing work, with dark and golden hues, makes this puppet stand out. 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 will be 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!
