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.

Synthetic plush raven with leather beak stands about 10 inches high. Feet are a construct of plastic-coated wire: the bird can stand on a flat surface or a bust of Pallas or the feet can be wrapped around a branch or rod.

I like ravens. They're bright, fun to watch, and will bite your fingers if you're not careful. My first close encounter with a raven was in 1984, when Hardey, one of the residents of the Tower of London, bit my proffered hand. The Warders found it amusing. Ten years later, Hardey was still at the Tower, and signs warning of nipping ravens are everywhere.

When we camped at Medicine Lake, a raven hung around to see if we'd toss out any food. We left about half a loaf of stale bread, which the raven took, slice by slice, and cached. One of the guys got bitten, too. I told him, but would he listen? Noooo.

I've seen huge ravens near the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, a pair of plump ravens in a pasture in New Mexico, and throngs of scruffy "garbage ravens" scrounging through trash around camping areas in Death Valley. A Nature special on ravens showed them lined up taking turns riding "piggyback" on an unhappy wild pig.

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.
