O&M Hausser was a German company founded by the brothers Otto and Max Hausser in 1904. They began figure production in composition in 1912. In 1925 they purchased Pfeiffer of Austria and integrated the Pfeiffer composition figures into their production under the name Tipple-Topple. They continued to produce a broader range of figures including extensive wild animal and farm lines. Composition production continued until 1969. In the 1950s the company began transition to production of plastic figures which continued until 1982. The company went out of business in 1983. The 1:25 scale Soft plastic animal molds ended up with Preiser who produce the figures in hollowcast plastic.
