Set of 10 handmade dolls, with drawstring cotton bag for safekeeping. A classic, made from wire and scrap fabric. According to Guatemalan legend, when children go to bed at night, they tell one of their worries to each doll and then place them under their pillow. In the morning the dolls have taken their worries away. (Works for adults too!). Handmade in Guatemala by UPAVIM Crafts.
6cm W x 8 H (dolls 2–4cm tall)
