Hawaiian Menehunes are one of a kind 3.5" miniature, collectible dolls of my own design. They were individually handcrafted on the Big Island of Hawaii with the greatest attention to detail creativity, inspiration, and love.
The bodies are made out of stretch cotton and stuffed with high quality poly fill. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. All dolls and accessories are authentic and originally designed, following concepts of Hawaiian tradition and spirituality. Hawaiian Menehune Babies are collectibles for inspiration, guidance, and protection. Each Menehune has a unique personality and conveys a personal, inspiring message. All dolls come with a booklet of their special story and a certificate of authenticity.
Magical Hawaiian Menehunes are dolls with a soul carrying the spiritual power of Hawaii.
“Mele Kalimaka!” (Merry Christmas) The sound of Mu’s voice echoes through the forest as he zooms down the mountain slopes on his holua (Hawaiian sled) ringing his Christmas bell. Mu’s holua is loaded with gifts for his Menehune Ohana (family). There is a basket with the Menehune’s favorite treats, mai’as (bananas) and a big kahiki (pineapple), but there also is a box wrapped in tapa cloth (bark cloth) with a big red bow. It holds a secret present, a magical treasure which will fulfill somebody’s most heartfelt desire.
Mu carries a big surprise for you too. Close your eyes make a wish and get ready to open your magical gift!
Mu is the Menehune’s Christmas Elf. He is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Mu has little hands and feet, elf ears, buttocks and a belly button.
Mu has pointy little elf ears and, of course, he wears his red and white elf shoes with the matching Santa Claus hat. Mu’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed all these clothes for him. She also made his brown and green tapa cloth malu (loincloth). Last she draped a Ti Leaf lei around Mu’s neck to protect her Mo’opuna kane (grandson) on his dangerous sled rides down Hawaii’s volcanic mountain slopes.
Mu and his Kuku (grandfather) built the holua together. They carved it out of Hawaiian Kauila wood and tied a bamboo railing with raffia to both sides of the sled. They surrounded the sled with Ti Leaves to assure that Mu will always be save and protected on his holua.
All these precious things were Mu’s Kupuna’s (grandparents) gift of Aloha (love) to their grandson.
Mu’s sister, Poli’ahu, weaved the basket for her brother and tied a beautiful, big, red bow with a green crystal to it. Mu often visits Poli’ahu on the top of Mauna Kea, the greatest volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. The two of them always have so much fun riding Mu’s holua down the snow covered slopes of the great mountain.
Mu has a unique personality. His sled is signed and dated. Mu comes with his story and a certificate of authenticity.
Mu is a one of a kind doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. He is a collector’s item bringing you the spiritual power of Hawaii.
