Steiff has created some of the most adorable plush animals and Wittie Owl is no exception, especially when it appears as a hand puppet. And this toy is special not only because of its attractive appearance but also because it is likely an early model from the 1950-60s. Its simple but endearing felt beak is an indication of that. Similar to other toys of the time, Wittie was finely handcrafted in Germany using the nicest mohair plush. It has amazing airbrushing details and two amusing flapping wings. Little black tufts on the top of its head complete its lovable and wise personality. Wittie's head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This playful little bird will be a great addition to any vintage toy collection!
