This little fellow is interesting because when I first got him he looked like this, them again I only paid $20.00 for him on eBay :smile:

I bought him cause I wanted to experiment what I could do to make him more like the original. I always thought this specific Ficher Price toy puppet had a lot of potential but because of manufacturing costs for it to be a viable for sale toy it had to have its limitations.

The first steps where easy ;So I started by cleaning him up real good
Restored the paint on his eyes

But then the hard part came!
I purchased 3 24" long male ostrich feathers 2 red 1 orange, (that is actually what the original animal hair is made out of) and started placing the feathers. The process is very tediouse because you not only need to place them but place them in layers creating a sort of hairline!

Here is a pic from him at the beginning stages:

Then once I was done with his mane I started stuffing his limbs:
