Hedgehog Dolls

Besides trolls from Scandanavia, hedgehogs from Germany were introduced circa 1950. Some, known as Meckis were made by the German Steiff toy company.  The smaller 4.5 in. all-vinyl Mecki is unmarked. I made the crocheted skirt. The 9.5 in. hiker Mecki, also unmarked, has a vinyl head, felt hands, plastic shoes, and a wired cloth covered body. He carries a plastic Alpine bouquet. The 7 in. dwarf of felt who is looking on was made in Switzerland.
