The “Protect Me” collection from Steiff features beautifully designed animals that were created as an educational series to raise awareness for global endangered species — such as the South American primate we call “Tami.” This toy’s model in nature is a scarce variety of marmoset that is threatened by the deforestation of the rainforests. Also, because of its cute appearance, these monkeys are also captured and kept as pets. Our cuddly soft version captures all the fine details of its counterpart in nature. Her face is gray and her head is encircled by long white plush. Skilled Steiff artisans have added brown highlights to the claws, the edge of the ears, the mouth, and the “mask” of the face. Tami’s belly is white, her rump is brown, and she has a long, bushy tail. With this cute, lovingly designed playmate, your child will be reminded of the beauty and wonder of wildlife. This realistic Steiff masterwork is also sure to thrill and inspire adult collectors, too.
