Dachshund- Large- #165
This toy was made of Brown rayon plush with an open Red felt mouth and a Pink felt tongue. It was stuffed with shredded foam rubber and had felt eyes and a Black pompon nose and a Red satin neck ribbon. It was only made for one to two years in mid 1970s.
This Dachshund was a larger version of #139 – a 12’ long Dachshund that was very popular. Our designing followed a plan of making additional sizes of popular stuffed animals. In addition to making a larger size of the popular #139 Small Dachshund, we also tried to improve upon it. In this case we added and open mouth to make it more attractive.
