Hawaii's Nativity Scene

One of a Kind Ocean Theme Hawaiian Nativity Scene

He kapu hanai 'oia ka moe
No ke kama iki e hiamoe ai
Nānā mai la na hōkū ma i luna mai
Iā Iesu ka Haku o moe laʻi ana

Away in a manger, no crib for his head
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

Standing in a precious ocean theme coconut creche, Malia (Virgin Mary) lovingly watches over her baby Iesu (Jesus), who is contently nestled in his nut cradle. Iokepa (Joseph) blows his Pu (conch shell) in the 4 sacred directions to announce the birth of Iesu, the greatest of all blessings. Pua'a, the pig, Honu, the turtle and Pueo, the owl have gathered to adore the sweet baby.

In the Aloha spirit of Hawaii, the dolls, animals, coconut cradle and accessories were intricately handcrafted with the greatest love and respect for this sacred event.

Malia and Iokepa are about 3” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The bodies are made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. Iesu is about 3/4" tall. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto their face. Malia, Iokepa and Iesu have tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and belly buttons.
Pueo's body has been crocheted with embroidery thread. Pua'a and Honu were sewn out of faux fur.
The coconut for the creche was selected from palm trees at Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. It is hand carved, sanded, polished, and fit to a custom coconut husk base.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Malia, Iesu, Iokepa, Pueo, Honu and Pua'a are one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. They come with a certificate of authenticity.

Treat yourself to this Holy Ohana (family)
 and bring the Aloha spirit of the Islands to your home.

Hawaiian Menehunes are one of a kind 4" miniature collectible dolls who were individually handcrafted on the Big Island of Hawaii with the greatest love and respect for all that is Hawaii and the fascinating diversity of the world we live in.

All Menehune Dolls have their own names and birth dates. Each one comes with a certificate of authenticity and a booklet of their own unique story, which conveys a personal inspiring message for guidance and protection. Their detailed personalities and accessories reflect the wisdom of Hawaiian spirituality and culture.

The Little People of the Secret Power

In Hawaii the Menehunes are often called "The Little People of the Secret Power" and referred to as the legendary, original inhabitants of the islands. Menehunes are mystical, shy little creatures who hide in secret places of the forest during the day, and perform their magic at night under the glow of the moon.

Many People in Hawaii have actually seen Menehunes.

Menehunes take the greatest pleasure in doing good deeds to help people. With their great determination and perseverance they possess a magical ability to get things done.

Kamapua'a, the Hunter

Aumakuas (Ancestral Spirits)

Hawaiian Menehunes are enchanting, lovable, creative, and sometimes mischievous little creatures.They are so closely connected to their Aumakuas, like Honu, the Hawaiian Turtle, Pua'a, the pig and Pueo, the Hawaiian Owl, that these often become their faithful companions and guardians.

Some of the Menehune Dolls have their own special coconut cradle or chair. The coconuts were selected from palm trees at Punalu`u Black Sands Beach. They are hand carved, sanded, polished, and fit to a custom coconut base.

Other Menehunes love to go sailing in the ocean in their wooden Wa'akaukahi (Canoe).

Kauai and Honu

Magical Hawaiian Menehunes are Dolls with a Soul.

They love playing, dancing, singing, swimming, and, most of all, eating. If you hanai (adopt) them, love them, and take care of them, they will love you in return, guide, protect, and inspire you on your life's journey.
All dolls, miniature animals, and accessories were individually handcrafted in the Menehune's habitat in the beautiful, secluded mountains of Ka'u on the Big Island of Hawaii. Miniature Hawaiian Menehunes are unique art dolls for display rather than a child's toy.
