Nina's Day in the Market

I just finished a project inspired by the children’s storybook ‘Araw sa Palengke’ (Day in the Market) by May Tobias-Papa and Isabel Roxas published by Adarna House in 2008. To commemorate the book’s 7th year of publication, May asked me to create a plush version of the main character, Nina.

Mini-Hanon Plush Keychain


Since the recipient of my Hanon commissioned work will have her birthday soon, I decided to give a small gift to the 10-year old Mermaid Melody fan. Here’s a mini-Hanon plush keychain.
This plush is approx 3″ tall (4″ with keyring attachment).

Hanon Plush Doll


This is my plush version of Hanon, the blue mermaid from the popular anime Mermaid Melody*. Hanon is a commissioned work for a 10-year old fan of the series. The plushie is 18 inches tall and completely hand-sewn from quality wool felt with plastic bead accessories and accent.

GladOS Plush Potato

From time to time I would get unusual requests for a plushie project. This one is no exception. When the client asked for a GladOS Potato Plushie, I was like “What is that?” Thankfully he sent images I can use to create the plush and Google has plenty of information on hand – GladOS* is a fictional AI computer system in the video game series Portal.

This plushie is approximately 11 inches tall and 100% hand-sewn.

Robinsons Supermarket Munchville Festival 2013

Robinson’s Supermarket held its annual Snack Festival at Robinsons Summit Ridge in Tagaytay City. It was a fun-filled event with tons of snacks, candies, and other goodies up for grabs. The little kids enjoyed the activities lined up for them and Oliver Makes Dolls was there to teach them how to make their own cute little monsters. We also gave away hand-sewn monster plushies and keychains as prizes. Pop Talk‘s Kuya Tonipet Gaba hosted the event.


'Slumber Party' Plushies


The 8th edition of Cinema One Originals offers 13 films that promise to be “brave, bold, original.”
This 2012, moviegoers have the choice to watch the films at Robinsons Galleria from November 28 to December 9 or at the Edsa Shangri-La from November 29 to December 4.
One of the few films we couldn’t wait to see is Slumber Party directed by my friend Emman dela Cruz.

SLUMBER PARTY is a riotous comedy about a tied-up cute frat boy and three curious gays. It also happens to be an unapologetic social commentary on how ordinary people react to social issues.

Singer-theater actor Markki Stroem takes on the role of a homosexual in this comedy flick set on the night of August 23, 2010. Under the administration of President Noynoy Aquino, two “major major” events are underway: the heated bus hostage taking of Hong Kong nationals in Quirino Grandstand and Venus Raj’s fight for the Miss Universe crown. Three gay friends throw a slumber party to watch the pageant but they are surprised by the arrival of a young frat boy named Jonel.


In time for the premiere, Oliver Makes Dolls created the Tribeki plush dolls based on the main characters.

Slumber Party is produced by Emman dela Cruz, HUBO Productions, Cinema One, Christian Diamzon Pictures and distributed by Origin8 Media; also stars Niño Muhlach, Maey Bautista, Betong Sumaya and Venus Raj.
