“Mele Kalikimaka!” (Merry Christmas)

Mu's voice and the sacred sound of the Pu (Conch Shell) echo across the ‘Aina (land) as he zooms down the mountain slopes on his Holua (Hawaiian sled). 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), a big Kahiki (pineapple) and a perfect Niu (coconut), 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 is the Menehune’s Christmas Elf. He wears red elf shoes with a matching Santa Claus hat. Mu’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed all these clothes for him. She also crocheted his green shorts and wove her Mana (spiritual energy) into the green Hulu (feather) lei he wears around his hat. In Hawaii the Hulu is believed to link to the divine.
Last she draped a Conch shell amulet 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 railing with raffia to both sides of the sled. They surrounded the sled with Conch shells 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 beloved Mo’opuna Kane.

Mu is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Mu has little hands and feet, elf ears, buttocks, and a belly button.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Mu is a one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls.
Mu comes with his sled, story and a certificate of authenticity.

Mu conveys the magical Mana of the Hawaiian Kalikimaka.
