STEIFF Smardy Fox Hand Puppet ~ 1964-78

The world of Steiff creations is vast and no species are left behind. Along with the most known bears, cats and dogs the company also developed some other very interesting characters. Smardy Fox hand puppet is a great example of a forest animal that Steiff turned into a handsome and playful toy. Based on a fox that is featured in a children's math book, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany between 1964-1978 and uses the nicest mohair plush. Different from other puppets developed during the same period, Smardy is full bodied and has an incredible presence with its bushy tail. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. This puppet has been loved and has lost its IDs, but still in good condition with no major flaws. Smardy is certainly a welcome addition to any vintage toy collection.

  • Condition: Used and pre-owned vintage puppet. Missing IDs. Mohair shows some wear. Small hole in one ear where the button used to be and thread loop where the chest tag used to be. Please determine the condition by yourself, taking a close look at all pictures and asking questions.
