Menehune Christmas Magic

Kihikihi is named after the yellow, black and white striped Hawaiian reef fish which is shown on his overalls. Kihikihi wears a yellow crocheted Menehune hat with a shell and 2 matching shells as buttons for his overalls.
Kihikihi is a shy little Menehune boy, but he is also very curious and would love to be your new friend.

In the past I have made exclusively 3.5" miniature, collectible Hawaiian Menehune dolls. Recently I created my first 10” huggable doll for my little granddaughter. The project of crafting a ‘child proofed doll’, integrating new patterns, designs and themes, was a whole new experience for me. It was so much fun, that I felt inspired to add a new line of huggable to my miniature, collectible Menehunes Dolls.
In Hawaii the Menehunes are called “The Little People of the Secret Power”. They are the legendary, original inhabitants of the islands.
Huggable Menehunes are 10” tall cloth dolls who were individually handcrafted on the Big Island of Hawaii with the greatest love and respect for all that is Hawaii.
The bodies are made out of stretch cotton, stuffed with high quality poly fill and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. All Menehunes have fingers, toes, buttocks and a belly button. The hair is made out of wool or synthetic doll hair.
Each doll is an original design and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Alohi (Love) is a Menehune Hula dancer. She wears a grass skirt, a blue bikini with Plumeria flowers and shell leis around her neck, wrists and ankles. Her beautiful black hair is adorned with a flower lei.
Alohi carries the Aloha spirit of Hawaii. She is ready to be your new friend and dance her way into your heart.

Huggable Menehunes are loveable and playable dolls for all the small children and big children at heart in the world.

Huggable Hawaiian Menehune Dolls are enchanting little creatures. If you hanai (adopt) them, love them and take care of them, they will reward you with their unconditional Aloha (love).

Christmas is the time to bring some magic into your and your children's life with your own huggable Hawaiian Menehune Doll.
