What are these ears for, if not for flying? With a big leap, small Dumbo is meant to keep the circus till ringing! But the experiment fails … Instead of applause, there is ridicule and only the supporting role in a clowns’ act. Eventually the friendship with Timothy Mouse and the magic of a crow’s feather give him self-confidence. And indeed, in the next clown’s act little Dumbo surprises everyone and flies! When the elephant comes to the cinema in 1941, he captures many hearts, including the Oscar® jury. Made out of the finest mohair, Dumbo swings to the top once again in 2017 as a star in 2,000 Steiff circus rings. Heart flutteringly desirable!
