THE LEGEND OF THE WORRY DOLLS HAS BEEN AROUND FOR CENTURIES,
Worry dolls are small, colorful dolls and according to Guatemalan legend you “tell the dolls your worries before going to bed and place them under your pillow and in the morning the dolls will have taken your worries away”
Children or Adults who cannot sleep or are worried can tell their worries to the Worry Dolls which they place under their pillow before going to sleep.
Worry Dolls are a lovely little gift for a child (or adults) having trouble sleeping, having bad dreams, worrying about going to school, going to the hospital, visiting the dentist or flying on a plane or any occasion people may feel nervous or anxious. Being able to voice fears and concerns is a very important skill for children and teaches them important life skills, also just laying in bed talking and playing with the Worry Dolls creates mindfulness time to wind down and relax after a busy day.
Of course children just generally love to play with the little dolls also.
Worry dolls are generally made from colorful cloth and little bits of wood with painted faces and hair. They are traditionally placed in woven bags or little boxes containing worry dolls with a printed copy of the Guatemalan legend. We also have some made into hairbands, bookmarks, keytags and shoulder bags.
The Worry Dolls vary in size from 2cm big or up to 6cm or bigger and each doll being hand made is guaranteed to be unique.
WORRY DOLLS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 4 YEARS OF AGE DUE TO CHOKING HAZARD.
The dolls are intended as a guide only.
