Steiff animals

I don't know why I love these little things. Perhaps it is the fine German engineering. Maybe it is the memory of receiving them from my Uncle John who worked for Doneckers in Epherta which I would then promptly cut the name tags off, which makes me shudder today. Maybe it's because they are just so damn cute. There is huge display of them at the Children's Museum and I saw a few I have in my collection and few I would like to steal. 1950's or earlier, mohair, and under 5" please
