Steiff has created some Santa Claus figures throughout the years but none of them is as fun as the hand puppet Santa! Introduced in 1954 and produced until 1961, this iconic little character is a favorite among collectors. Like other toys of the time, Santa Claus puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany and has an adorable expression with gorgeous mohair beard. His vivid costume is made from felt and has some nice woolen accents. The head is made from rubber and stuffed with excelsior (wood wool). It has a finger tube for movement. Santa is overall in good condition but his head has cracks, although it is still solid. His hat is no longer attached to his head. Santa puppet retains his button and flag #0121,00. Who is going to bring Santa home tonight?
- Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. The head has cracks, although it is still solid. The hat is no longer attached to the head. With button and flag #0121,00. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.
