“The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes”, first published in 1911, was Beatrix Potter’s twelfth story for children and was written to appeal directly to a North American audience.
The story tells of two sensible grey squirrels, Timmy Tiptoes and his wife Goody who work hard to store away nuts until the spring. When Timmy is wrongly imprisoned in a hollow tree by another squirrel who believes he is stealing his nuts, Timmy has to bide his time until a storm topples the tree and he can be reunited with his beloved Goody.
The craftsmen and women at Steiff have recreated Beatrix Potter’s little grey squirrel to perfection. He’s hand-made from the finest pale grey and white mohair with sparkling black button eyes and a fabulous fluffy tail. His face has wonderful airbrushed detailing and he has a friendly, determined expression.
