Steiff Tom Cat is certainly a favorite among Steiff's beloved felines and it is even more desirable as a hand puppet! Kitty's expression is hard to resist. Like other toys of the time, Tom Cat was skilfully handcrafted in Germany from 1968-78 using the finest mohair plush. The pictures can't capture how lustrous its plush is. It retains the button in ear with a yellow flag # 6670/17. It has nylon whiskers and the nose/mouth is hand-stitched. Kitty's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a plastic finger tube for movement. This sweet little puppet shows light wear in some areas but overall has been gently played. For sure this sweet little puppet will be a nice addition to your toy collection!
