Enami Eyes are high quality, hand-painted acrylic safety eyes for dolls, bears, stuffed animals, plush softies and amigurumi. I use ONLY non-toxic, lead-free paints. The colors are permanent and designed for use on plastics. Colors will not transfer to fabric under normal use*.


Enami Eyes are available in more than 55 colors including opaque pastels, brights, shimmering jewel tones, metallics, translucent colors, and more. You won't find this selection in any craft store.


Enami Eyes come in 12 sizes: 4.5mm, 6mm, 7.5mm, 9mm, 10.5mm, 12mm, 13.5mm, 15mm, 18mm, 21mm, 24mm and 30mm.

Cat eyes are available in 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, 18mm and 21mm.

*sizes are subject to availability*

Each eye has a post and a plastic/metal safety washer that is designed to permanently affix the eye to fabric, plush, and knitted or crochet items.


These eyes are generally referred to as "safety eyes" by the manufacturer because they have a post and a locking washer used to "secure" them to fabric dolls and toys. HOWEVER, they are NOT indestructible and are NOT recommended for pet toys or for children under 3 yrs or any child that still mouths and chews on their toys.


Enami Eyes are highly water-resistant and once affixed to dolls and toys, they can withstand machine washing as long as the item they are embellishing is washable too.

Delicate cycle
Drip dry / lay flat / air dry

*I recommend placing washable toys with Enami Eyes in a pillow case to prevent the eyes from anything abrasive during the cycle. Soaking is not recommended. Machine drying is NOT recommended. DO NOT use chemical glass cleaners on plastic, it damages and dulls the surface. Soapy water works just fine :D

Most listings are "made-to-order" meaning they are painted in your choice of colors AFTER purchase. I use high quality materials that dry to a permanent finish. Therefore, production does not begin until payment is secured. Depending on the size and variety of your order, production and drying time may take 2-5 days for standard orders. Please allow 5-7 days for your eyes to be painted, dry and ship. Large custom orders may take slightly longer. Let me know if you need rush production.

Orders that consist of commercial supplies only and "ready to ship" items are packaged and shipped within 1-3 business days.

PLEASE NOTE: All color requests must be made in the "Message to Seller" box on the Etsy checkout page so that it appears on your Etsy receipt... Or in an email or Etsy conversation immediately following purchase.

If no request is made on Etsy or by email, I will send you an assorted pack of colors of my choice.

***Please DO NOT put your color requests in the Paypal "Notes:" section.
