An old velveteen rabbit.Bought this guy off of eBay (that's where I got these images), and I was wondering if anyone recognized him. I'm wondering who made him and how old he is. I think he's a velveteen rabbit from sometime in the 1900s.

His label says "Made in Japan", and I vaguely think the triangle with "STS" on it is a toy manufacturer. Does anyone know where he's from?

This looks like a toy version of the beloved children's book, "The Velveteen Rabbit" by Margary Williams. It was originally published in 1922 and the cover art resembles your bunny very much. Here's a link to the book with original illustrations on Amazon so you can compare.

Hopefully, someone else can help you pinpoint the manufacturer or date of the toy. Just like in the book, this toy has been well loved so it's possible that it's resale value isn't much.

If this is made in Japan, it probably was manufactured in the 1960s or later.
