They aren’t really related to pigs, and they do not hail from Guinea. But do those facts even matter when they’re so undeniably cute? Apparently not, since Guinea Pigs are the sixth most popular pet in America. Steiff designers have captured the allure and charm of these gentle and beloved animals in our Dalle Guinea Pig design. His soft and silky coat features the realistic white, red, and black spots typical of the tortoiseshell variety. Measuring 8.5 inches, he’s also a perfectly sized take-along playmate. Like all members of the “royal family” of plush toys, Dalle is handmade from superior quality materials by the toy industry’s most skilled artisans. He features the world famous “Button in Ear” trademark, symbol of highest quality. From the company that pioneered soft toys in 1880.
