Here we have a set of Steiff's Alpo and Alpa dolls. Each doll is 10 cm and made from rubber. The bodies are lined in wire, so each limb is flexible. Alpo is the boy and he wears a little felt hat, grey pants, a white shirt, green suspenders, and black shoes. He carries a little backpack on his back. Alpa is the girl and she wears a green hat and skirt, white blouse, calico apron, and a black belt.
These dolls are "cousins" of Steiff's famous Mecki and Micki hedgehog dolls. They were produced in this size and in 1964 only, and as a result, are exceptionally hard to find.
