Stuffe & Nonsense are no longer operating and cannot accept orders. Pages for the plush figures we made are still online for reference. If you bought from us in the past, Thank You! We hope you have enjoyed the soft sculpture art.

A Hippogriff or Hippogryph is a fantastic creature with the body and hind legs of a horse but the head, wings and forelimbs of an eagle. Hippogriffs were supposed as the offspring of a griffin and a mare. They were rare in mythology and classical literature -- more a symbol of impossibility than a wondrous creature. But modern fantasy, and especially fantasy gaming, have brought hippogryphs more visibility as a powerful steed.

Compelled by Buckbeak from the Harry Potter movie, Warren finally developed a pattern to make a horse body. Adding the bird parts was comparatively easy, since we already had those patterns for the gryphon. Now we can make a small hippogriff 12 inches tall or a large hippogriff 18 inches tall. Our model is a grey, but other colors are possible. The legs are wired to keep him standing up. The wings are jointed at wrist and shoulder so they are posable (not flappable, but posable).

Stuffe & Nonsense stuffed animals are soft sculpture artist original designs, individually hand crafted in California by the Stuffe Staff. Due to medical issues and other priorities, we no longer make our own stuffed animals. If you already have one of our toys, we hope you treasure it.

The animals were constructed of mohair, wool, alpaca or high-quality synthetic fur. We have been accused of taxidermy, but be assured that all of our animals are fake! They are stuffed mainly with polyetheylene fiberfill; we may use glass or plastic beads to add weight. Faces are needle-sculpted for detailed shaping.

Stuffe & Nonsense Stuffemals often use glass eyes or include small costume parts and are not generally recommended for young children. If you do want one of our stuffemals for a small child, be sure to state so when ordering. Then we can be sure to use only safety eyes and avoid any problematic parts or materials.

Stuffe & Nonsense is an artisan business and every figure is an individual creation. We do not have a large inventory of materials, the available plush and fabrics vary, and we do adjust patterns to improve shape or details from time to time. We will sometimes have stuffemals on hand but will more likely need to make your figure on order. Completion time for stuffemal orders is usually 2 to 8 weeks, though it can take longer if we're busy and you're not in a hurry. This business is run in our so-called spare time so work hours are subject to extreme variation.
