Nyamy Cat Washino Monchichi

Updated on March 18, 2014

What is Nyamy? About Nyamy cat collectible monchichi toys

Nyamy is very rare Monchichi doll type. Nyamy is a Cat or Kitten Monchhichi with soft furry stuffed body and hard plastic face, paws and feet and suckable thumbs.

I would like to share with You as much as I know in this small Washino Nyamy Collectors Guide.

Nyamy cats were first made in 1979 by Washino DNP company, probably as a response on the huge success of Sekiguchi Monchichis after their release in 1974.

Originally there were four Nyamy kittens - members of Nyamy family. Black, White, Beige and Grey Nyamy cat.

Unfortunatelly, they have not been on market for long. I found an information, that they have been taken off the market just after nine months. They contained iron powder which is very dangerous and flammable - therefore cute, but dangerous toy.

I own all the photos in this lens, unless the photo credits given.

Nyamy cats - The Rarest Monchichi dolls

Why do I love them

Just look at all the photos of Nyamy kittens! They are so adorable. Sweet chubby cheeks, big eyes and softest fluffy fur! And I have to say, many times photos do not do them justice.

I do collect all monchhichi dolls, but I have a weakness for these Washino cats. Because of the fact, that they were taken off the market so shortly after they were just released, they are really RARE to find nowadays.

Because of that, Nyamy washino kittens have a real collectors value and much higher price than any other monchhichi doll type. And older they will be their price will go higher too.

Therefore if you are going to think of investing into any vintage toy, do get these adorable rare Nyamy cats.

Nappy Nyamy did get her name because of her sleepy eyes I suppose.

      I stumbled across the cute Nappy Nyamy at a local fleamarket about three weeks ago. Paid a mere R40.00, which is about $4.00 Never thought she'd be so valueable! Thank you for the information regarding this cutie!

      Do you have a Nappy Nyamy for sale? My dog got ahold of mine a year or so ago and tore it up and I have cried so hard over it. I am a soon to be 35 year old woman in search of a Nappy Nyamy. Mine was the EXACT picture that you have of the one on here. I miss my Nyamy so much. Any help would be appreciated.

      Nyamys are not the most expensive Monchhichi type tho the priciest ones are Daisuke by toho which are similar to Monchhichi but with sleeping eyes that close when laid down, the animal versions and bigger sizes fetch up to thousands of dollars in Asia...

      Nice site you have going on here, some of your info is not fully correct but it is very nice to see someone taking the time and effort to spread knowledge about Monchhichi in the web!
