Worry Doll Family

Our latest supplier, Go Fair Trading, has sent us some beautiful products, including these Worry Doll families from Guatemala.

A world-famous Guatemalan legend, tells that when children go to bed at night they take these little dolls with them and tell one worry to each doll, then place them under their pillow. In the morning, these adorable tiny dolls will have taken all the child’s worries away.

Made by the women of UPAVIM who live on the outskirts of Guatemala City in an impoverished area called 'Esperanza" (Hope).  These dolls make a wonderful gift.
