Millesan Drews Keiki Figurines
This page features Millesan Drews Keikis. These were produced by Millesan Drews, Hagen Renaker and Napco. Hagen Renaker Keikis are very, very rare. They may have been test marketed at Knott's Berry Farm in the 50's, but were never produced for sale. Very few are known to exist and all the examples I have heard about, came from factory employees.
Millesan Drews made Keikis are hard to find, but not what I would consider rare. They are not as well made as the Hagen Renaker version. They are quite similar to the Napco version. The ones I've seen have slighty different colors, leis or flower placement. The Millesan Drews Keiki on base is hand signed.
Napco Keikis are very collectible but are more common than the other 2. Napco Keikis were sold in a box with a pamphlet that stated that 10 styles of Keikis were produced.
