Melisa's Bears...

...is pleased to introduce an adorable baby monkey!


~ Adopted ~

I'm so excited to introduce my newest baby monkey! I've named him Abyassa, which is Bahasa Indonesia for "clever".

At 4.5”, Abyassa is a sweet furry handful :) Every time I look into his eyes I fall in love all over and I hope you will love him as much as I do!

Abyassa was so enjoyable to create and photograph – so much fun to pose! His photo shoot was a blast!

Abyassa is a one of a kind artist monkey completely designed and hand sewn (no machine sewing) by me, Melisa Nichols. He is very detailed and as such he is his own unique individual and can not be duplicated ~ a true one of a kind. Many, many hours went into this baby!

Because of all this detailed work, I will never be able to create another baby just like Abyassa. I do not work with patterns - just from photos and drawings, so there is no pattern he can be remade from.

Abyassa is made from gorgeous recycled mink fur from a vintage collar. So soft and fluffy!

Abyassa's adorable face is full of detail. His face has been thread sculpted, scissor sculpted and hand shaded. He has soulful black glass eyes. He also has moveable eyelids (top and bottom) so he can be posed awake, sleepy or sleep.

Abyassa's ultrasuede hands and feet are thread sculpted and hand shaded.

Abyassa is completely hand sewn and filled with polyfil, pellets (in his tummy), and an extra portion of cuddles. Abyassa is fully armatured (including his tail) for lots of fun poses! 

Abyassa is completely lined as are all my real recycled fur creations.

If you have any questions or comments about Abyassa, please email me me... I'd love to hear from you! If you'd like to be on my mailing list, please let me know.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing all of Abyassa's pictures. Thank you for visiting him here!


Abyassa will arrive with hang tags that include his birth date, a picture of him and a signed Certificate of Authenticity. He is a collectable baby bear cub made for display only - not suitable for children due to small parts.

Thank you to everyone who views and collects my soft sculptures!

All my soft sculptures are created in a smoke-free home.

***SHIPPING*** ~ I am delighted to offer Abyassa with free surface shipping anywhere in the world. This includes up to $1000 insurance for most countries (Canada Post will not insure to all countries). Free shipping is by surface mail which usually takes 1 1/2 to 2 weeks to US destinations and 6 - 8 weeks to overseas destinations. There is a $50 charge if you would like to use Xpresspost instead which is much quicker.

***LAYAWAY *** ~ 1/3 payment within 7 days, 1/3 - 30 days after, and the final third, 30 additional days after that. Currently, I do not charge a fee for my layaway service. Layaway payments are non-refundable. If you'd like to use this option, please email me before bidding.

***CUSTOMS*** ~ Customs fees, duties and tax will be the buyer's responsibility, according to the country's regulations, as well as delays due to customs regulations.
