Vintage 1950's/60's 3 x Steiff Mecki Mini Hedgehogs.

Vintage 1950's/60's 3 x Steiff Mecki Mini Hedgehogs.

A cute little set of three 1950's/60's Steiff Mecki hedgehogs in need of some T.L.C.

 

We have Mecki leaning on a lamp-post with bottle in hand, on his motorbike with tools and ski-ing.  

 

The hedgehog is a figure in a Brother Grimm’s tale of the Hare and the Hedgehog from the 19th century.  A film was made about this story by the Diehl Brothers in 1938/39, who called the hedgehog Mecki.  He has since then been a comic figure in the German Horzu magazine and various children’s books.  In 1951, the first Steiff Meckis were produced. Mecki’s wife, Micki, is the embodiment of a 1950s woman — calm, good-natured and always in the background. They have two children: Macki and Mucki.
